Vendor Information Guide
The main products at the Downtown Farmers' Market are Iowa-grown and Iowa-produced food products. As it continues to grow, The Market has become more attractive to vendors who sell various products, committing to choosing a product mix that is attractive to customers, meanwhile keeping the balance of the event intact. Because of the commitment to balancing product mix, some categories are closed for application. Closed categories will not be open for application for current vendors and new applicants. Applications submitted for closed categories will not be reviewed and the application fee will not be refunded, so please be sure to review the Open/Closed category information in the 2019 Vendor Information Guide.
By including locally produced produce, eggs, beef, poultry, lamb, goat, baked goods, dairy, wine, jams, salsas, cut flowers, perennials and bedding plants among other Iowa farm-produced and value-added products, The Market gives priority to products that are produced in Iowa and sold directly by the producer/grower; however, this does not guarantee acceptance. While recruitment of high-quality products, such as prepared food, artwork, crafts and jewelry is encouraged for The Market, availability is also limited.
