Seymour Area Farmers Market accepting vendor registrations
The Seymour Area Farmers Market is accepting vendor registrations for the 2020 season.
You can be part of a growing market that attracts many people every Saturday from the end of May through the end of September.
Everything you need to know like how much it will cost to participate and other information is on the Seymour Chamber of Commerce website. You need to hurry though, because there are additional fees after March 27.
Farmers markets these days are not just for fresh produce, but also eggs, meat, honey, baked goods, books and handmade soaps and crafts. Some vendors even sell ready-for-consumption food!
You can read more about what the Seymour Area Farmers Market permits vendors to sell in the handbook.
The Seymour Area Farmers Market also offers live music, demonstrations and children friendly crafts once a month through the season. There’s also Market Lite on Wednesday mornings through the season.
Vendors are encouraged to participate because of the value it creates. It’s hard to determine exactly how much advertising and promotional value there is as a vendor. The Seymour Area Farmers Market also boasts a paid market manager and a number of volunteers, which is very helpful.
The market’s set hours also help increase foot traffic.
Another farmers market to consider setting up at is the Brownstown Ewing Farmers Market, which has traditionally been organized for every Thursday.
For participation in the Brownstown Ewing Farmers Market, call the Jackson County Purdue Extension Office at 812-358-6101.
The Jackson County Visitor Center loves farmers markets!
