For Vendors

Rules, Regulations & Policies

Portland Farmers Market (PFM) has created a comprehensive Vendor Handbook for 2023 that clearly outlines all of the rules, regulations, and other important information for vendors at our markets.

Vendors are expected to abide by all of the rules outlined in this handbook at all times. It is essential to read and understand the entire Vendor Handbook 2023.

PFM has created the following forms for vendor success and compliance:

PFM management has created protocols and procedures that allow vendors to lodge complaints against other vendors whom they think are out of compliance with market rules and policies. This helps PFM regulate food safety, products sold and operational security.

All of these forms can also be found in our Vendor Handbook for 2023.
