Becoming A Vendor

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 open for the 2022 Outdoor Markets. Please read this entire page thoroughly before applying.

The 2022 Saturday Market will run April  – October  8:30 PM - 12:30 PM

The 2022 Wednesday Market will run May October  8 AM - 2 PM

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. 

We strive 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.

 

Please review the 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.

 

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. If you would like to join us as a community group or busker, please read the regulations and then click on the relevant link below to apply.

Applications

Applications are reviewed monthly during the outdoor season, and this means it can take up to four weeks to process your application. You can submit your application online, but we still need a signed Vendor Contract from all vendors. Your application will not be considered complete until we have received all required parts (contract and market fees for seasonal vendors or just contract for daily vendors).

Boundary Map

  • From Clearwater to the intersection of Notch Hill Road and Highway 1 in Sorrento.

  • The boundary then goes south to the edge of Falkland’s western limit on Highway 97.

  • Then from Falkland to the Merritt town sign on Highway 5.

  • Then in a northerly direction to the Cache Creek limit and Highway 1

  • 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 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.

Vendor Fee Schedule (Per 10' Space)

After a review of our finances and an examination of the fees at other markets, it was determined that the Kamloops Regional Farmers’ Market would implement a 13% fee increase in 2021, in order to cover rising costs of operation. This increase applies to seasonal and daily fees at both the Saturday and Wednesday markets.
