Our Farmers

To be considered a Farmer at the Bradenton Farmers’ Market, we asked that vendors produce 60% of what is displayed at their booth. All other items must be from area farmers within 50 miles of their farm. They must be able to identify each product, the farming practices used and date of harvest. They understand that unscheduled inspections will occur.
