Become a Vendor (closed)

2020 Applications are now closed. Vendor applications for the 2021 season open on February 1.

Hello potential future vendor! Before you read any further, please answer this question:

Do you make, bake or grow your own product?

Did you answer yes?  If so please continue with the application process.

If you answered no, we’ll have to stop you there. As a member of the BC Association of Farmers’ Markets, we only accept vendors who make, bake, grow or raise their own product.

Applications are closed for the 2020 OUTDOOR Markets.

The 2021 Saturday Market will run April 17 – October 30, 2021, 8:30-12:30

The 2021 Wednesday Market will run May 5 – October 27, 2021, 8:00-2:00

COVID-19 continues to be a public health risk, and the Kamloops Regional Farmers’ Market is taking every precaution to remain safe for everyone. Farmers markets are classified as an essential service and the Kamloops market will operate in 2021. For a full description of precautions and the latest updates, please visit the BC CDC page on farmers markets.

The Kamloops Regional Farmers’ Market strives to remain at the forefront of environmental responsibility, and so we are banning vendors from using plastic grocery bags at their booths. Cloth, paper, or certified compostable bags are acceptable. Vendors are permitted to purchase Farmers’ Market-branded bags or other cloth bags and resell them.

If you are interested in selling fruit, vegetables, eggs, meat, fish, crafts or prepared food that you have grown, raised, caught made or baked yourself please fill out the Vendor application by clicking on “Vendor Applications” below. Please review the 2020 Market Regulations to ensure that the market is an appropriate fit for your business. We also have a map of our area boundaries (below), which can be referenced in conjunction with the boundaries on the market regulations.

KRFM Boundaries

(click to enlarge)

Boundary Description:

  1. From Clearwater to the intersection of Notch Hill Road and Highway 1 in Sorrento.
  2. The boundary then goes south to the edge of Falkland’s western limit on Highway 97.
  3. Then from Falkland to the Merritt town sign on Highway 5.
  4. Then in a northerly direction to the Cache Creek limit and Highway 1.
  5. Straight back north to the edge of Clearwater.

** Note: the towns of Cache Creek, Clearwater, Sorrento, Falkland and Merritt are considered out-of-area. The boundaries of the KRFM extend to the town limits.

The current boundaries were established in 1998, based on the boundaries of other community markets. The rules and regulations were clarified so that any farms who had originally assisted with the market viability since its inception were allowed to stay as special permission vendors as long as the business stayed the same.
