Returning Vendor Application

REturning Vendor Application

 Returning vendors application

Please read the Updated* Rules of the Market, The rules are subject to change at any time during the season and vendors will be notified of these changes in writing.

WCFM requires that all vendors comply with standards of professionalism that promote open communication, mutual respect and the best interests of the market. Disruptive actions or remarks that undermine the shared success of any or all of our community of vendors are unprofessional and unacceptable. Failure to comply with these standards could result in suspension or removal from the Market.

For the WCFM to be successful, vendor attendance is necessary. Members must attend the market at least 24 out of 30 weeks in 2019 in order to qualify for a permanent space in 2020.

Each vendor participating in the Market shall be responsible for any loss, personal injury and/or damage that may occur as a result of the vendor’s actions and agrees to hold harmless the WCFM from any losses, damages, claims, suits or actions, judgments and attorney fees. Vendors are encouraged to maintain their own liability insurance.

Upon submission of your application, you agree to following terms:

I agree to allow representatives of the WCFM to visit the premises where the products I intend to sell are produced. I acknowledge that I have provided access on the website to a copy of the Rules for the WCFM and that I will abide by these rules. I understand my membership can be terminated for violation of any of the Rules.
