The Texas Township Farmers’ Market features roughly 35 vendors each Saturday and 28 vendors each Tuesday, selling locally-grown fruits, vegetables, flowers and plants, meats and eggs, as well as local cheeses, baked goods, prepared foods and more. All of our vendors come from a distance of within 50 miles, and most of them live in Kalamazoo county. Many are Township residents as well.
For those interested in being a vendor, please review the 2017 Texas Township Farmers’ Market Vendor Rules Guidelines and Application. If you’re an eligible vendor, please submit an application Wednesday, March 1 at 5 p.m. to be considered for this year’s market. See the Vendor Application Checklist to assist you in preparing your application and supporting documents, and see our Resources section below.
Tables are assigned based upon several factors, including participation in the market in the previous year; variety and diversity of products; proximity to Texas Township; adherence to Market Rules and Guidelines; and application detail and completeness. Please note that we have had a wait list in past years.
All vendors must have a current application on file with the market manager to be considered for space at the market. This means that even if you were a part of the market or on the wait list in the past, you have to submit a 2017 application to be considered for a vendor space at market this year. We revisit our rules and guidelines annually to ensure that they are clear, fit our market’s mission, and adhere to federal, state and local rules and regulations for farmers’ markets and food businesses.
