Product Integrity

We go to great lengths to ensure that all products sold at the market meet our qualifications of local, handcrafted, hand-made, and locally grown. As part of our process, the Artist Market Coordinator meets with all craft and produce vendors to ensure that all products are made or grown by the vendors selling the items at their booths. Product integrity is of great importance to our market. If you have questions regarding product integrity, please contact the Artist Market Coordinator.

Product Types

ARTS & CRAFTS: Any locally made, home-crafted, or hand-assembled arts and crafts, that have been made by the seller or members of the seller's household, can be sold at the market. All items must be in good taste and complement the family atmosphere. 

AGRICULTURAL/FOOD VENDORS: Our farmers market is a meeting place for those wishing to sell their homegrown, gathered, raised, or caught food products that farmers offer directly to the consumer.
