Sunday Market: May 7- October 29, 2023
Greeting Community Market Vendors!
We are currently full for the 2023 Market season for new vendors. You can still submit an application and get put on the wailist and on-call list if accepted to the market.
We are looking forward to the start of the 23rd year of the Flagstaff Community Market!!! With your hard work, the Community Market has grown to be one of the top markets in the State of Arizona. Thank you ALL for the hard work and dedication you bring to the Market and the local foods movement.
For returning full season vendors, it is important to submit your application as early as possible to ensure you have a space for this season. Returning vendor applications must be received by March 15, to ensure a space for the season. Only full season reserved vendors are given first right of refusal for the following year.
The market has a waiting list for new vendors and we will do our best to let new vendors know by April 15 if we have available space and for what weeks. Growers/primary producers are always given priority over new value added vendors in regards to space availability and reserved spaces. Prepared food vendors must be able to document and demonstrate that they access some of their products from local growers. We are not accepting any new prepared food unless a substantial amount of their products are made with local ingredients and the vendor is able to show proof of this.
For new value added/artisan vendors, please note that the Sunday Market is full for all new value added/artisan vendors until returning vendors send in their applications. Check out Flagstaff Urban Flea Market (see Urban Flea section of website) or the Wednesday Downtown Market for other vending opportunities. A limited number of grandfathered artists come in for the full season -all other artists are rotated in depending on space availability.
Based on availability, FCM may allow non-profits into the market for fundraising. Political and politically oriented groups/causes are not permitted in the market.
A few other important points: 1) All processed and prepared food vendors and artists must have a state of Arizona TPT license. Contact Arizona Department of Revenue with questions at www.aztaxes.gov or 800-352-4090. 2) ALL value added vendors MUST have commercial insurance and list Flagstaff Community Markets, LLC as an additional insured. 3) All nest egg vendors must label/register according to Arizona Department of Agriculture requirements. Please visit http://www.azda.gov/licensing/Nest%20run%20egg%20-%20info%20sheet%20.pdf for info. 4) ANY vendor who prepares food on site, has temperature controlled food, open handles food, or samples MUST have a Special Event license from the Coconino County Health Department. Apply on line at https://coconino.az.gov/2390/Online-Permit-Applications orcall Coconino County Health and Human Services at (928) 679-8750. 5) If you're wondering if you can accept EBT or WIC please visit azdhs.gov/prevention/azwic/farmers-markets/index.php for more info.
This year, we are asking vendors to submit their application via email and registration fee via Venmo if possible. To submit your application by email, please copy and paste the text from the application into a pdf or doc, fill out the application, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Venmo is @flagstaff-market. We will do our best to let you know the status of your application asap, but as we process hundreds of applications, please reach out if you don't hear from us within fifteen days from the date of submitting your application.
Thanks & we look forward to another great year!
