Mission Statement

The Estacada Farmers Market serves as a marketplace to provide fresh, locally grown food, plants, along with unique arts and crafts in support of the local community, agriculture and small businesses.

Market Governance

The Market Committee governs the Estacada Farmers Market. Daily management of the market, vendors, entertainments schedules, fundraisers, special events and all other market activities are supervised by the Volunteer Market Committee.

Market Time and Season

The Estacada Farmers Market will be OPEN for business on Saturdays of each month May thru September from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Vendors have the option to open their booth early (not prior to 9:00 am), if desired. Vendors must be vacated from the market no later than 3:00 pm. Late departure can be approved by the On-Site Manager on a case-by-case basis.

General Rules

Each market date will have an assigned Market Manager and the Manager will post a sign in their booth indicating this responsibility. Market day governance shall be the sole responsibility and at the discretion of the On-Site Market Manager.

The Market Manager of the day will assign vendor spaces (NOTE:  A vendor will have the right to the space used the week prior, thus “reserving” their space.  A vendor will forfeit this privilege if: 1) they are not present at the market for 2 consecutive market days; 2) are not present at the market by 9:00 am.) The Market Manager is responsible for the overall functioning of the market on their assigned day – this includes:  Collecting fees (please bring space fees to the manager as time permits) and enforcing market rules.

The market reserves the right to: limit the number of spaces assigned to a vendor, prohibit the sale of any product, enforce the market rules, and to inspect all vendor facilities. The Market Manager may also close and/or cancel the market if weather conditions are extreme and present a danger to the vendors/public.

Registration and Booth Space Fees

All vendors are required to submit a signed application each year prior to obtaining a booth space.  By signing this application you agree to follow all rules of conduct. Application fee and your first week’s booth space fee are due upon application submission. Booth space fees shall be paid one week in advance. Fees are based on a 10’x10’ space and are as follows:

Application Fee = $20.00

Weekly 10×10 Booth Space Fee = $15.00

Weekly 10X20 Booth Space Fee = $25.00

Non-profit, community services (no sales allowed) = no fee (dependent on available space)
