Interested in Becoming a Vendor?
The Victoria Farmers' Market is proud to be a producer's market. Everything sold at our market is 100% homegrown, homemade or handmade by our vendors. ABSOLUTELY no resale of any type is permitted. We are first and foremost a food market and are always looking for more vendors who offer fresh food. By design, we only keep a small number of artisan and craft vendors on our roster.
We charge a $35 annual fee to join our market and a $25 booth fee each time you participate. Please read the by-laws, rules and regulations, and the Cottage Food Law, then submit the vendor application to Meridith Byrd at firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact Meridith at 578-0591 or 361-218-9246 with any questions.
Do you have an abundance of produce at certain times of the year, but not enough to join the market as a regular member? Our Backyard Gardener membership might be just what you need! With this membership you do not pay the $35 annual fee and your booth fee is only $5. However, you may ONLY sell fresh fruits or vegetables and you may attend only up to 15 markets per year.
**Vendors selling ONLY whole produce (not cut up or processed into jellies or other products) are exempt from the requirements below, per the Victoria County Health Department.
Food vendors need to obtain a Texas Food Handlers card. This online course is inexpensive and easy to complete. (Google "Texas Food Handlers Card" for a list of online course providers.) In-person classes are held occasionally at the Victoria County Health Department based on demand. Please call 361-575-4581 for a schedule of upcoming classes.
In addition, certain food vendors are required to have a Retail Food Permit from the Victoria County Health Department, located at 2805 North Navarro inside the Pattie Dodson Public Health Center. To obtain this permit, you must have already completed the Texas Food Handlers Course mentioned above. Vendors operating a COTTAGE FOOD BUSINESS are NOT required to have a Retail Food Permit.
