Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at Portland Farmers Market, a collection of eight vibrant markets serving the Portland metro area. Portland Farmers Market is proud to serve as a small business incubator for the many wonderful farms, nurseries, bakeries, meat and seafood providers, cheesemakers and specialty food producers our area has to offer. Every vendor is carefully screened with a commitment to creating a diverse marketplace with the highest quality locally produced products available.
Portland Farmers Market is strictly a food and farms marketplace. We are a producer’s market interested in showcasing locally grown and artisan-quality, locally/directly sourced and produced foods and will not accept the following items at our markets:

Portland Farmers Market is committed to creating a diverse marketplace with the highest quality, locally produced products available. Although Portland Farmers Market reserves unconditional discretion to accept or refuse anyone as a market vendor, the selection process is quite rigorous and takes into consideration many factors, including product quality, sourcing, growing practices, presentation, seniority, safety, compliance, customer service and the right product mix to ensure a successful market.
Welcome to Portland Farmers Market! All new vendors are required to attend a new vendor orientation before the start of market season. You will receive adequate advance notice about the time, date and location of this orientation meeting.
