The Township of Union Farmers' Market is an annual, weekly farmers' market that brings together the best local farmer and vendors every Thursday during the summer months. We are committed to providing the highest quality products to our residents and, therefore, we consider many factors in our selection process of approving every vendor application we receive.
We require that all market vendors “make it, bake it, raise it or grow it” and we reserve the right to accept or refuse anyone as a farmer market vendor. Other important factors in our selection process for farmers and vendors also include product quality, growing practices, presentation, product uniqueness, marketing practices and the right product mix to ensure a successful farmers' market experience.
You will be contacted to provide any additional needed information and/or samples of your product for review.
