We are drawing very near to the first ever Rexburg Farmers Market. We on the advisory board are excitedly working to get everything put together to make this the best possible experience for all of you, as well as your customers.

Important Dates:

June 18 – 6:00 p.m.  –  Final Vendor Training Meeting at the Westwood Theater

June 19 – 4:30 p.m. –   Deadline to apply to sell at the June 26 Market (paper applications to city hall)

June 22 – 9:00 a.m.  –  Deadline to submit applications by email (Andrew.williams@rexburg.org)

June 24 – 4:30 p.m.  –  Deadline to submit vendor agreements (if you’ve already applied to sell)

June 26 – 4 – 8 p.m. –  Inaugural Rexburg Farmers Market!!!

This Thursday (June 18) we will be having our last vendor meeting before the market begins. It will take place at 6:00 pm in the Westwood Theater. In this meeting we will once again cover how to get a tax identification number as well as how to go about paying your state sales taxes. This will also be a great opportunity to get all of your last minute questions answered.

We will also have applications to sell available at the meeting which can be submitted afterwards to Lisa Jones. If you have not filled out your tax forms and submitted them to Lisa, you’ll need to get them from her at the meeting tomorrow night. Every vendor is required to fill out the tax forms to either get a tax identification number or, if you already have a number, you’ll need to fill out the forms so that we know your tax identification number.

We are still accepting applications to sell at the market throughout the summer. If you have not yet submitted your application to sell at the market, you’re not too late. We will be accepting paper applications to sell at the June 26 market until the end of the day on Friday, or, if you would prefer to email your application, they will be accepted until 9:00 am on Monday morning. For all other market dates, we need to have your application at least a week and a half before your first chosen market.

For those of you who have submitted your applications to sell at the market on June 26, you should have received a vendor agreement form from Andrew Williams. That form needs to be submitted along with your payment for market membership and booth space by Wednesday, June 24. If you did not receive that form please contact Andrew and let him know so that he can get it to you ASAP.

We look forward to seeing all of you at the meeting tomorrow night.

Vendor Meeting

There will be a vendor meeting on Thursday, June 11, at 6pm in the Westwood Theater. All those interested in selling their goods at the Rexburg Farmers Market should plan on attending. There will be more information on the Farmers Market, as well as some helpful tips for a great booth set-up , pricing, etc. We will also be able to assist you with getting started on your tax licenses.

Also, for all of you who are interested in selling craft related items, we will have a product jury from 5:00 to 6:00 on Thursday evening before our vendor meeting. Please bring your craft items to the Westwood Theater between 5:00 and 5:30 pm so the product jury can have the opportunity to inspect them to make sure they are homemade by you. You will simply need to fill out a short form about your items and leave it, along with a sample of your craft items, with the jury. All items can be picked up right before or after the vendor meeting that night.
Just to reiterate, all craft vendors are required to have their items approved before they can sell at The Rexburg Farmers Market. If it is absolutely not possible for you to bring your items to the jury tomorrow night, we will try and make arrangements for you to bring them at a later date.

We hope to see you there!
