Vendor Participation

Participation in the Wendell Market is open to growers, harvesters, bakers, makers of prepared food, and artisans (who will be called “vendors” from here on). The market strives to be a producers-only market. Vendors must participate in the production of the products they sell. The Wendell Market is primarily a producer-only market. A producer is defined as the person who, “grows or makes the product for sale”. These persons may include immediate family, partners, employees or local cooperative groups. No multi-level marketing (MLM) vendors are allowed.
