Frequently Asked Questions
How much do spaces cost?
Spaces are $30 each week and are billed monthly.
Do you have a waitlist?
Yes, we have a waitlist in most categories. But we encourage you to still apply. You may have a product we NEED.
How long is the waitlist?
This is incredibly hard to predict. Each category has a different amount of vendors on that waitlist (some with all the same type of product). Your category may only have one person in front of you, but we might already have their product and not yours. It’s extremely complicated, and we cannot give an answer to this.
Once I submit my application, do I just show up?
No, applications are reviewed at one meeting every two months. You may have to be placed on our waiting list. Farmers/Growers/Gardeners are reviewed in two weeks and must submit to a site visit.
Are you interested in my product?
There is an entire committee dedicated to reviews. We cannot answer this question unless you apply and your application is reviewed.
Do I have to make my food in a commercial kitchen if it doesn’t qualify as cottage food???
Yes if it is preprepred. No if you are preparing everything on site.
