New Farmers Market opening in Tempe seeks backyard growers, master gardeners and small-scale producers! The Market is a program of the Tempe Community Action Agency, and will operate Saturday mornings starting January 11, 2014.
If you have plants you have grown yourself, seeds, starts, compost, and other related regenerative agriculture projects / products you have produced we’d love to have your participation.
We really want this venture to be a true farmers market, featuring local agriculture, local food and have a small percentage of local crafts!
Please see attached the application as well as a flyer about the Community Exchange Table (English and Spanish versions).
If you would like a booth of your own, please complete the application and return to Cindy Gentry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to share a table with others at the Community Exchange, please contact Chip Satterlund at email@example.com.
Feel free to share with any backyard gardeners or master growers or farmers you know, as well as any small-scale food vendors please.
Is there a fee to sell through the Community Exchange?
Yes, It is 20%. 5% to the Market, 5% to CET Operations, 6% to the CET Booth Manager and 4% to the CET Director.
What are you hoping to sell at the Market?
Thank you! We have a large garden, chickens, and a couple dozen fruit trees. We have looked into several farmers markets, but we aren't large enough to produce the quantity and variety to have a booth. I will email you for more info.
