Sunday Market: May 14- October 15, 2017
Wednesday Market: June 21-September 6, 2017
Greeting Community Market Vendors!
We are looking forward to the start of the 17th 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. This is reflected in the fact that Coconino County had the highest Farmers Market Nutrition Program redemption rate in the State! Thank you ALL for the hard work and dedication you bring to the Market and the local foods movement.
For those returning vendors, it is important to submit your application as quickly as possible to ensure you have a space for this season. Returning vendor applications must be received by April 1, 2017. The market has a waiting list so clarity is needed in order to accept other vendors. Growers/primary producers are always given priority over value added vendors in regards to space availability and reserved spaces.
For new value added/artisan vendors, please note that the Sunday Market is full for value added/artisan vendors until returning vendors send in their application for the 2017 season. The Wednesday market has space available for new vendors, as well as the new Flagstaff Urban Flea Market (see Urban Flea section of website). Again this year, we will be participating with a variety of non-profit entities which serve the greater Flagstaff Community. FCM will be assisting non-profits in fundraising and, at times, may ask vendors to participate by donating items to raffle baskets. Non-profits will sell tickets for the baskets for fundraising purposes.
A few other important points: 1) Vendors other than growers must have a Flagstaff Business/Peddlers License (please call 928-779-7685 and ask for Tax and Licensing). 2) ALL value added vendors this year 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. Value added vendors must also show proof of commercial kitchen inspection by the County Health Department.
Thanks & we look forward to another great year!
