Some changes have been made to the vendor requirements. We now have a liability waiver to replace our insurance requirement and some new exciting programs such as the incubator booths. Please stay tuned this winter as we update the full vendor handbooks and info packets. Until that time please feel free to call Suzie at 412-568-3536 for more details on how you can join the market.
If you are looking for insurance coverage, we purchased our insurance from http://www.campbellriskmanagement.com/vendor—producer-application
Vendor Selection Criteria
- Each vendor at the Kingman Farmers Market must be a primary or secondary producer.
- 100% of all products sold by non-food vendors (artisans, crafters, etc) must be hand crafted locally (within 150 miles of Kingman). Arts and crafts should be created from base materials and supplies with an element of design and construction involved.
- A minimum of seventy five percent (75%) of product sold by all vendors at the Market on market days must be of the Member’s own production and the remaining must also abide by product guidelines per market during the market season. (Noncompliance will be addressed by the Manager.)
- There must be an available spot in the appropriate producer category.
- Secondary producers that source at least 10% of their raw materials from Arizona primary producers get priority from the market manager when deciding which vendors can participate in the market. This is referred to as the 10% rule. In other words if at least 10% of the ingredients by weight or volume come from an Arizona primary producer, you will get a space before a vendor who does not source their raw ingredients form Arizona.
All vendors are required to meet any local or state regulations for their product type, including but not limited to the following. For questions please contact the Mohave County Health Department or Arizona Department of Agriculture.
