Vendor Application

We are now accepting online Vendor applications for the 2022 Outdoor Markets.

The Saturday Market runs April - October and the Wednesday Market runs May -October.

 

Please read the following before applying.

All vendors must read, accept and adhere to the Market Regulations. Only vendors who grow, raise, bake or make the products they plan to sell are eligible to vend at the Kamloops Regional Farmers’ Market.

Farmers markets are classified as an essential service and the Kamloops Farmers' Market will continue to operate during the COVID-19 Pandemic. For a full description of precautions and the latest updates, please visit the BC CDC. Thank you for your cooperation.

If you are wanting to sell any foods other than fresh, whole fruits and vegetables please review the Guidelines for the Sale of Foods at Temporary Food Markets and fulfill any necessary requirements through the Interior Health Authority (IHA).

 

If you are selling prepared, ready-to-eat foods it is essential that you review the IHA regulations and establish whether your food is low-risk or high-risk. Some low-risk foods are permit exempt, but high-risk foods will require an application. This includes getting approval for the sale of raw shell eggs (find application on page 14 of the Guidelines). You are required to provide proof that the foods you are selling are prepared in an approved facility, or proof that they are considered low-risk and may be prepared in a home kitchen. All paperwork must be submitted in order for your application to be considered. You will find more information in the Market Regulations.

Vendor applications are accepted throughout the season, and are reviewed at the monthly meeting of the Market board. It can take up to five weeks to fully process applications. Thanks for your patience.

If you have any questions about filling out the application form, please contact the Saturday manager at info@kamloopsfarmersmarket.com or at 250-682-7975.

Along with completing the online application, please print off and sign the Vendor Contract  mail it or drop it off to a market manager prior to your first planned day of attendance along with Market Fees.
