The Kingsport Farmers Market is now accepting online and paper applications for vendors for its 2020 season.
Every vendor must reapply for the market each new season. The application is available online by going to kingsportfarmersmarket.org and clicking on “Become a Vendor.” Anyone who prefers a paper application can visit Kingsport City Hall or the Kingsport Carousel to pick one up, or request one by phone at (423)392-8414.
Before applying, vendors should take time to review the Vendor Handbook on the Kingsport Farmers Market website, linked on the “Become a Vendor” page. This handbook lists the KFM’s policies regarding what types of vendors are eligible to sell at the Market, as well as what kind of documentation you might need.
Returning to this year’s season is the Evening at the Market series. On the 2020 application, vendors can indicate whether they are interested in participating in Evening at the Market.
Vendor acceptance, placement and dates granted are at the discretion of the Kingsport Farmers Market staff. All accepted vendors will be notified on or before April 1, 2020.
Though it’s been in operation for more than 40 years, the City of Kingsport took over administration of the Kingsport Farmers Market’s operation before the 2018 season. A number of successful programs and festivals make Kingsport Farmers Market one of the best in the area, and Tennessee Magazine once again named it the Best Farmers Market in East Tennessee.
The Kingsport Farmers Market hopes all its new and returning vendors will help to make the 2020 Market season a success!
