Congratulations on taking the first steps to joining the Moscow Farmers Market! Whether this is your first time with a new business venture, you have a unique product to introduce, or you’re simply seeking a direct market opportunity to engage with the community, we are here for you every step of the way. 

The Moscow Farmers Market has two distinct categories of vendors: Agricultural Vendors and Non-Agricultural Vendors. To better facilitate the variety of requests our office receives throughout the year about Moscow Farmers Market participation, please use our Prospective Vendor Inquiry form. Upon submittal, a staff member will follow-up with your inquiry. To keep all Vendors in compliance with Market policies, our office does not accept new vendors past April 1st. Inquiries that are received throughout the Market season will be added to the upcoming season roster for future correspondence.

All Prospective Vendors are encouraged to review the Moscow Farmers Market Handbook (PDF) in advance to understand the culture and history of the Market and learn about the current policies and fees.
