Info for Vendors

Are you a farmer or producer of organic goods? Perhaps it’s time for you to become a Brookside Farmers’ Market vendor!

Customers who shop our market are committed to healthy living. They care about where their food comes from, and they want to know the farmers and producers who grow or prepare it. They know that many of our vendors are certified organic, and those that aren’t certified DO follow organic practices. Many of our customers shop the market every week.

If you are certified organic, meet national Organic System Plan requirements, or produce goods with 51% or more organic ingredients, you probably qualify to be a Brookside Farmers’ Market vendor. Join us today!
