Join our growing community of local farmers, growers, artists, and creative businesses. Please read the guidelines outlined below carefully, and then apply to be a vendor at the downtown Bradenton Farmers’ Market.
The final authority in determination of products and services available at the Market is Realize Bradenton. Vendors may only sell approved products. Selection guidelines are subject to change.
Our market celebrates our community’s diversity, cultural assets, and friendly downtown environment. We want our vendors to feel a part of our community, and we encourage you to support other vendors. We expect a high-quality customer experience for our customers. Vendors who talk to their customers with a smile create a welcoming market ambiance. Be courteous. Any verbal abuse by a vendor toward another vendor, the public, or the Market Manager is not tolerated and is cause for immediate expulsion. Show pride in your products and your unique background through your booth display.
Spaces will not be assigned, and vendors cannot set up their booths until payment is received. Vendors who pay in advance, either seasonally or monthly, receive incentives such as discounts and space preference.
