For Vendors

Welcome to the Brownsburg Farmers Market!

The Brownsburg Farmers Market is proud to support small businesses, local growers, producers, and artisans in Brownsburg and Central Indiana. We strive to create a unique marketplace with a wide variety of locally-produced products available. Thank you for choosing to join the Brownsburg Farmers Market. Weekly vendor applications must provide at least 14 days from the expected first attendance date.

Selling

Vendors must be in place, ready to sell, at least 10 minutes prior to the opening of the market. Selling will begin promptly at 4 pm. The vendor must be a grower, producer, or baker. No resale items will be permitted. This market is currently not accepting applications from direct sellers/resellers. We are a grower-producer market only. All items sold by vendors at the market must be approved by the market master, who reserves the right to revoke approval of sale items if they do not meet the standards set forth in this document and/or in the approval documents. Please list ALL items you plan to sell in the market application. If you decide to add additional items later, please let the market master know. Certain items may follow different health department requirements and need approval before they come to market. Examples of these include certain types of eggs; sugar-free jams; canned foods; baked goods with dairy-based fillings and frostings; temperature-controlled foods; kombucha; fermented foods; vacuum-sealed foods; meat products; and foods prepared on-site.

Selling out

Vendors who sell out of their product prior to the end of the market must keep their booth in full set-up. Vendors may hang a sign indicating products are sold out; however, tear-down is not allowed until the market has officially ended for the night.
