Market FAQs

Can I bring my dog to the market?

Dogs are not allowed within the market grounds. Service dogs are allowed as per the ADA accommodations. Thank you for your understanding. 

Does the market have bathrooms?

The market has partnered with the Rich Earth Institute and offers portable bathroom units. One collects urine, which is converted into fertilizer, and one is a conventional handicap accessible unit. There is also running water for general use.

Is there public transportation available to the market?

Connecticut River Transit's The Current bus lines offer convenient 15-minute transport from downtown Brattleboro. Check the Brattleboro Red Line Schedule for times and fares.

I'm interested in becoming a vendor—where can I get more information?

Do the market vendors accept credit cards?

Several vendors at the market use Square and are able to accept credit and debit card payments directly. The market manager's booth also can process cards in exchange for market tokens (which work as cash). There is a $2 fee for each credit/debit transaction.

Does the market accept SNAP Benefits?

Yes! The market can swipe EBT food stamps and EBT cash cards in exchange for market tokens at both the Saturday and Downtown markets. There is no fee for this service. The market also offers a matching program for EBT food stamps customers. For each food stamps dollar, the market will provide an additional $1 coupon good for fruits and vegetables. $10 limit per market.

Are the same vendors at every Saturday market?

While we have around 40 full-season vendors present most Saturdays, we invite daily vendors to come fill empty spots when they are open. For more information on becoming a daily vendor, please go here.

 
For Vendors

New reserved site vendor applications are due March 18. During the season, we accept applications from daily vendors only (vendors who fill in during absences). Please visit this page for information about vending at the market and application materials. All non-agricultural products need to be juried. Our initial jury will be held on April 2. Subsequent juries for daily vendors and vendors with new products are held once a month at 2pm on Saturdays. 

Fee structure: Vendors are required to pay a membership fee ($50 for daily vendors, $100 for individual members, and $125 for group members), a booth fee, which is based on footage for reserved site vendors and is $20 per day for daily vendors, plus 4% commission on total sales, due at the end of each day you vend. 

Vendors are responsible for securing the necessary licenses and abiding by all state regulations. All vendors (daily or reserved site) must also carry product liability insurance and provide evidence of coverage prior to vending.
