Prospective Farmers Market Vendors

If you are interested in joining the market as a vendor, please start by reading our guidelines listed in the vendor application packet below.  To be considered as a vendor you must complete an application, read and sign the waiver and agreement to the rules in the operating guidelines.

We are primarily a producers’ market with a limited number of artisan crafts and absolutely no re-sales on any items.  Sales of food products, whether at farmers markets or road side stands, are regulated by the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce (MDAC) and the Mississippi Department of Health.  The sale of any food product, including produce and processed food, requires attendance at a food safety class.  If you would like to sell meat, milk, cheese, poultry or eggs you must have a Retail Food Sanitation License from the MDAC.  Sale of acidified products, like pickles, require attendance at an Acidified Canning Class.  Home processed low risk foods are permissable for sale with certain conditions. See the Food Cottage information below.  Feel free to email the Community Development Director at gmatheny@cityofhernando.org if you have additional questions.

2017 Fee Schedule: The fee is $15 per vendor space, per Saturday, payable at the market.  Those who sign up and pay for the entire season receive a 10% discount on booth fees.
