Farmers' Market Application

 

2014 Roslindale Farmers' Market Application

Priority Deadline: March 31, 2014

2014 Special Announcement: Because of the reconstruction of Adams Park, the farmers market will have a temporary home for the months of June through August. The temporary location will be in the Upper MBTA lot in the Village.  More details pertaining to opening day set-up or updates on the park's completion will be coming in the next couple of weeks. For questions contact the Market Manager at rvmsprojectmanager@gmail.com.

Please review the following application guidelines carefully, as instructions have changed from previous years.

  1. All vendors must complete an application.
  2. Completing an application does not guarantee a vendor a space at the Roslindale Farmers’ Market. For priority consideration, your application must be submitted to RVMS no later than Sunday, March 31st. Applications received after March 31st will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Applicants will be notified beginning April 15th as to their status at the market and on a rolling basis (up to a two week period) thereafter. Payment will be due according to the schedule indicated below, in order to secure your space for the season.
  3. Vendors may sell only what they apply to sell, so please provide complete detail all products on your application.  Growers must also provide contacts for, and identify products they will bring from a secondary grower but vendor liability extends to all produce at your stand. A detailed product list for each secondary farm must be included as well, complete with contact information.
  4. Payment must be received according to the schedule indicated below. If payment is not received by the deadline, your space will no longer be reserved.
  5. All vendors selling prepared foods must include in their application all neccesary health permits and licenses from their local health department as well as Servsafe certification and allergen awareness certification (if you have it). If you are accepted, you will be required to fill out a City of Boston Farmers Market Permit, which the Market Manager will submit, along with a $100 check made out to the City of Boston. This is a new permit and is more comprehensive than the old Inspectional Services Health Permit.
