Welcome to our 2021 Market Season

VENDOR CRITERIA - 2021

 

Participation in the market is open to farmers, fishermen, food producers, and artisans whose products meet expectations as explained in the vendor classification section below. Potential vendors will fill out the appropriate application on the webpage, submit it, and wait to be contacted by the Market Manager. Applying to the market does not guarantee your space. Market vendor members are chosen based on quality of their products and needs of the market with preference given to Carteret County residents. The OBFM will continue to follow all COVID protocols and procedures for the 2021 season as established in our 2020 season and as directed by all government and health entities which at this time excludes on site cooking for samples or sit down dining.

 

All vendors, except farmers who are selling products they grew or raised, are required by NC state law to have a Sales & Use Tax ID # and certificate. There are no exceptions to this law.

 

VENDOR CLASSIFICATIONS:

 

1. FARMER / FISHERMAN: You are expected to sell produce which you grow on your own property or that you catch locally. We are also aware that some products desired by our shoppers, may not be grown or caught by you. If you choose to purchase and resell such products, along with your own, they must be clearly labeled, allowing our shoppers to make informed purchasing decisions. Certain businesses require government issued permits and certificates to legally carry on. You are expected to attain and send all such pertinent paperwork to the Market Manager at the time of application for her files. All products should be clearly priced. Those who are reselling must have a sales & use tax number and certificate. You are expected to know and use safe handling procedures in growing, catching, handling, packing, and transporting your products to ensure food safety and quality for our shoppers.

 

2. FOOD PRODUCER: You are expected to offer products such as value-added products, baked goods, pickles, jams, ready to eat food, etc. which you created in a state-approved kitchen and to have a current state-approved kitchen inspection certificate. You are expected to attain and send a copy of this certificate to the Market Manager at the time of application for her files. You are expected to know and use safe handling procedures in making, handling, packaging, and transporting your products to ensure food safety and quality for our shoppers.

 

3. ARTISAN: We promote, expect, and accept work that is handcrafted by the artist or craftsperson from quality materials and techniques made to high standards of design and craftsmanship. We value your creativity, skill and personal style as it applies to your work. With a goal of creating a diverse market, only a certain number of vendors who produce similar work will be admitted into the market, as stated on the application.

 

4. COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS: We invite and include non-profit organizations which offer a service to our community in our market. This venue offers you an opportunity to make the larger community aware of your organization and its mission. We ask that you refrain from selling any product in direct competition with our vendors. Discounted booth fees will apply to all non-profits that are selling items; those which are only distributing information will not pay booth fees.

Please support our local farmers and food producers by contacting them directly to purchase their farm raised or handmade products.
