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 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? 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.
