The application for our 2020 main season (Saturdays from May to October) is now open.   Please note that our monthly winter markets is now full and closed to new applicants.

Before you complete the application, be sure to review our detailed vendor rules & guidelines here. To complete the application you will need:

Your business UBI
Detailed descriptions of your business & products
Several photos (optional but recommended)
There is an Application Fee of $20 for new vendors. You will receive an invoice. Your application will not be reviewed until fee is paid. There is no application fee for returning vendors.

If you are accepted you will be notified with further information.

Acceptance into the market depends on several factors. The most important is how you embrace the mission of the market. Do you go out of your way to source locally/organically? Secondly is the saturation of your product type. We carefully consider the balance of vendors to ensure a diverse selection.  If you are a new application, please allow us up to 6 weeks to make a final decision. 

If your category is full or the market is fully booked you may still apply, but you may be placed on a Wait List. Things change all the time and the wait list is always moving.
Those on the Wait List can also choose to be “on call”. “On-call” vendors will be notified on Friday afternoon if we have an open space for you at the following day’s market.

IMPORTANT:

  • Vendors must operate in Skagit County or in one of the surrounding counties – Whatcom, Snohomish, Island, San Juan, Chelan, and Okanogan. If you do not operate in one of the qualified counties, please do not apply.
  • FARMERS: Do you grow veggies, microgreens, berries, tomatoes, flowers, or other crops common in our region? We love farmers, but we must report that at this time, this category is full and AFM cannot accept new vendors with this type of product. You may choose to apply, but you will be placed on the “Wait List”. Farmers with “unique” or “specialty” crops are definitely encouraged to apply.
