SFM Logo Isolated.png

ZFarmers' MarketgSandpoint supports local agriculture through education and a diverse community market.

We seek local farmers offering fresh produce & farm products along with craft & food vendors who produce a unique product demonstrating significant creativity using locally grown & locally sourced materials. 

All food and craft products are subject to jurying.

Jurying is based on overall quality, uniqueness, and market enhancement. In considering applications, the FMS Board prioritizes vendors who don't otherwise have customer-facing storefronts.

ALL APPLICANTS, including both new and returning vendors, must pay their $20 application fee and submit this complete application before their applicat
ion can be processed for consideration.


Please read each section carefully (it's a new form!) and provide detailed answers to

meaningfully inform your application for the FMS Board's consideration.

 

Finally, we know you're excited - we are, too! - and you're sure to have questions.

Our new Market Manager is also excited to begin and will eagerly address your questions as soon as she's prepared to field them. Please be patient as we welcome her and launch your applications.
