LOCAL KITSAP VENDORS!!!
Bremerton Community Farmers Market has a priority application deadline of March 15th for a focus on prioritizing Local Kitsap farmers, artisans/crafters, processors, food producers, wineries/distilleries & breweries. Don’t hesitate to apply today!
After March 15th we’ll continue to accept and consider all applications on a rolling basis continuing throughout the market season.
While Membership in the Bremerton Community Farmers Market is not required, it is recommended. Not only is there a reduced fee to participate in the Market with your Membership, vendors also have the right to vote and participate in the growth and governing of the Market. Regardless of membership, all vendors are expected to follow the same rules, as set forth by the Bremerton Community Farmers Market and the Washington State Farmers Market Association (WSFMA), of which the Bremerton Community Farmers Market is a member.
Please Note: The following businesses are NOT allowed to participate in the Bremerton Community Farmers Market, per WSFMA Rules, unless said vendor falls within an ‘Exception’. In all cases, these items are restricted from being sold in a WSFMA Market because the products are either not produced, processed, or created in Washington State by the vendor; or funding, marketing, or other assistance given to vendors comes from a source separate from the vendor. However, vendors who are not allowed to sell at WSFMA Markets are allowed to sponsor market events/activities, as long as they are not selling or taking orders to sell.
No Commercial or Imported Items
No Second Hand Items (Exception: Those vendors who take a second hand item and recycle that item intended for a new use.)
No Franchises: Those who have entered into an agreement or received a license to sell a company’s products and/or use a company’s packaging, logo, ingredients, and/or marketing tools under that license or any franchise agreement
No Non-Owner Operated Businesses: Only those businesses that are operated and controlled by their Washington State-based, owners are permitted at WSFMA Markets
No Out-of-State Processing: All processed products sold at WSFMA Markets must be processed within Washington State
All Vendor Definitions are listed in the 2022 Vendor Handbook
