Become a Vendor
Join our Community!
The Vancouver Farmers Markets community is made up of a diverse community of farmers, fishers, artisans, food preparers and more. Every vendor makes, bakes or grows what they bring to market and we have some of the highest standards & must successful markets in the province and across Canada.
Note for 2017-18: For the purpose of initial scheduling, no new prepared food, craft or food service vendors will be accepted to the following markets: Trout Lake, West End, Kitsilano (Summer) and Nat Bailey (Winter)
Here are the steps to take before becoming a vendor:
- Review our Vendor Handbook
- Complete and submit a vendor interest form (follow the links for category-specific forms below)
- If we have space for your particular product, we will invite you to apply*
*PLEASE DO NOT APPLY TO OUR MARKETS DIRECTLY THROUGH MANAGE MY MARKET AS YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE DECLINED. THIS SYSTEM IS FOR EXISTING VFM VENDORS ONLY. WE ONLY ACCEPT VENDOR INTEREST FORMS AS THE FIRST POINT OF CONTACT.
Farm Vendors – fruit, vegetable and plant growers, wild harvesters of fish and non-timber forest products, dairy and cheese producers and ranchers of meat and poultry. Everything is grown or harvested in BC.
Prepared Food Vendors – purveyors of baked goods, preserves and pickles, candy and chocolate, spices and seasonings and more. Everything is made in BC and sold by the producer.

Alcohol Vendors – BC made wine, beer and spirits are now accepted for sale at farmers markets with valid “farmers market authorization”. Not currently accepting new alcohol vendors but please do fill out a Vendor Interest Form (farm vendors for winery/property owners & prepared food for processors) if you’d like to be considered for the future.
