We go through 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.
ARTS & CRAFTS: Any locally made, home crafted or hand-assembled arts and crafts, which 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 compliment the family atmosphere.
AGRICULTURAL/FOOD VENDORS: Our farmers market is a meeting place for those wishing to sell their home grown, gathered, raised or caught food products that farmers offer directly to the consumer. To find out if your item falls within the Texas Food Cottage Laws, please visit texascottagefoodlaw.com.
