Vendor Application

If you are interested in becoming a vendor at the 61st Street Farmers Market, please review the Policies and Guidelines. Our Market is a producer-only, food-only market, so we do not accept crafts, body care products, etc. 

  • Farmers must guarantee that all products sold at the Market are 100% regionally grown and/or produced (IL, WI, IN, MI, MN, IA, MO).

  • Prepared food vendors must be able to verify that 75% of their ingredients are purchased from local growers/producers.

  • Priority will be given to vendors with products that are sustainably grown.
