Farmers’ Market Vendor 101

November 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Have you ever thought about selling at a farmers’ market but aren’t sure how the process works? Maybe you’ve been a farmers’ market vendor before but it didn’t work out as well as you expected.

Seacoast Eat Local has managed farmers’ markets since 2007 and has experience with many different types of vendors and market situations. We’re here to get you prepared for becoming a market vendor, whether it’s at one of our markets or elsewhere. Topics of this course will include the application process, different municipal regulations, packaging and labeling, staffing your booth, volume of product necessary to sustain demand, and more!

This course will help prepare you to participate in farmers’ markets in 2024 and beyond. It is intended for farmers, food producers, and fisheries of New Hampshire and Maine.

Friday, November 3rd, 10AM-12PM


How to prepare: Have something to write with next to you. We will be sending out a PDF version of the presentation so anything you see written on the screen, you don’t have to worry about writing down! We will be meeting using Google Meet and ask you to arrive at least 5 minutes early so you have enough time to make sure you can get into the virtual room with no issues.


You can also learn more about becoming a vendor of our markets here.

This workshop is being in partnership with NOFA-NH through their Transition to Organic Partnership Program (TOPP). You can learn more about TOPP here.
