Information for New Vendors

NEW vendors interested in attending the Cochrane Farmers’ Market in 2022 are encouraged to submit information about themselves, their business and their product(s) by completing the Vendor Profile form. This process allows vendors that have not previously been approved or have not attended the Cochrane Farmers’ Market in the past year to introduce themselves.

Please note that the Cochrane Farmers’ Market is an Alberta Approved Farmers’ Market, which means that 80% of our stalls must have products which are grown, produced, handcrafted, processed or baked by the individual. Products from outside Alberta or those that do not meet the above criteria are strictly limited. The Cochrane Market does not approve applications from new vendors that offer commercial / reseller or franchise products. This restriction also applies to most service-based businesses. Refer to the 2022 Vendor Guidelines, Part A – Criteria for Vendor Selection which clearly outlines our priorities when selecting vendors.

After the Vendor Profile is reviewed, vendors will be advised whether they meet the criteria for participation in the Cochrane Farmers’ Market. Upon approval, new vendors may submit applications for each of the markets they wish to attend. Note that approval of the vendor and their products does not guarantee that requested dates will be approved as product categories and/or markets dates may be full.

As a prospective vendor, we are sure you have many questions. To guide you, we encourage you to read our “Vendor Rules and Conditions” which clearly outlines all of our rules, regulations, and other important information you should know about becoming a vendor.
