Becoming a Merchant - More Information
Vendor Selection Process: We currently review applications on a weekly, sometimes bi-weekly basis. Your application will be reviewed by a Vendor Selection Committee (consisting of CFC board members) who will ultimately consider if your business is a good fit for the market. If selected, you will be asked to provide all necessary permits/insurance information and a signed Market Agreement & Indemnity Agreement. All vendors must have the proper documentation on file prior to beginning as a vendor.
Location: Within the Phoenix Bioscience Core in a parking lot at 5th St and McKinley St. 2 blocks south of Roosevelt St, and 2 blocks west from 7th St.
720 N. 5th St, Phoenix AZ 85004
Set-up: Our Market runs year-round outdoors in the 0pen air. All new vendors are required to have their own gear (tent/tables). All businesses are expected to set up and break down all of their own equipment and we ask that you leave your space cleaner than when you arrived.
Days and Times:
Year-round, rain or shine
Saturdays, October – April, 8 am – 1 pm
Saturdays, May – September, 7:30 am – 11:30 am
PLEASE BE PATIENT: The market generally operates near max capacity, and we tend to bring on new vendors as space is available. Artisans and other non-food vendors, please note that we are currently prioritizing food vendors. Though we do accept artisans, it’s just in on a more infrequent basis. We do offer a rotating artist series, in which we offer space once a month to an artist. If this may be of interest, please let us know! We don’t always follow up with every applicant, but you are welcome to follow up with us anytime at email@example.com.
Thank you for your interest in the Downtown Phoenix Farmers Market.
We recommend that all vendors carry some sort of small business insurance. More information on why we require insurance and what to consider when looking for general liability insurance can be found at the Farmers Market Legal Toolkit
