Please note the dates and times for this year’s market at the top of the page. Vendors who commit to participate in a majority of our weekly markets (30 or more) will have reserved spaces as close to “regular” placement as possible; no placement is guaranteed. The fee for participation is based on space required (minimum $20/market). Be sure to contact the Market Manager if you need more than 12’x12’ space (including side space) to determine costs.
*New vendors!!! Contact the Market Manager in advance via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) about participating in the market; space is limited. Invoices will be sent monthly based on anticipated attendance. If you do not plan to attend every market from May 5 to December 22, please indicate below which markets you will not attend. If your plans to participate in the market change, please notify the Market Manager as soon as possible in advance. Failure to do so may affect future participation and will affect invoices. Placement at future markets may also be affected by absences that are not negotiated with the Market Manager. Please sign this form and return it to the Market Manager via email or regular mail (addresses below), along with a signed copy of the Portsmouth Farmers Market Rules and Regulations and copies of any required permits and/or licenses.** Please retain a copy of this form for your files.
