How to Be a Market Vendor

Monday March 23, 6pm

Nantucket Community School
56 Centre Street

The Sustainable Nantucket Farmers and Artisans Market begins its 9th season this year! The Market is an island tradition and many islanders have found the Market to be an excellent source for supplementary income. In many cases, the market has been a springboard for small business owners who have gone on to open storefronts on-island and online. The Market is open to all Nantucket residents, seasonal and year-round. All items sold must be grown or produced on Nantucket. The vendor categories include: Value-Added Food Producers, Growers, Artisans, Mixed Vendors and Youth Vendors (ages 11-18).

In partnership with the Nantucket Community School, Sustainable Nantucket is pleased to provide you with the basic overview of the Market during a convenient one-evening workshop. This class will cover everything from Market rules, regulations and requirements; application deadlines and necessary forms; what to expect on Market day; sales, tax, insurance, Board of Health requirements and more. Through a panel discussion and Q & A period, participants will learn the process, materials and the time commitment required to become a vendor. The panel will be comprised of a grower, an artisan, a value-added vendor and the Market Manager. Join us to find out if the Farmers and Artisans Market is the venue for you! Potential Youth Vendors are welcome to attend if accompanied by an adult.
