Vendor Selection Process
SOFM vendors are selected via a deliberate process with priority given to returning vendors, vendors selling food products, and producer members of the co-operative. Other considerations when approving vendors include: commitment to sustainable production practices, locality, & uniqueness of product.
As of this year (2020), it is now mandatory that all weekly vendors must be producer members of our cooperative.

Farmers' Market Advisory Committee
In 2019, we established the Farmers' Market Advisory Committee (FMAC) to create space for vendors to give direct input into market operations and policies. Applications will be open every year to allow new vendors an opportunity to contribute to the growth and wellbeing of the market.
