Thank you for your interest in being a seller at the market. The Nevada City Farmers Market policy is to give preference to farmers and food/value-added vendors and artisans whose practices support our mission:

To enhance the quality of life in Nevada City and surrounding areas by providing access to fresh high quality locally grown products and other unique food items, a community meeting place and consumer education. To support regional sustainable producers by providing them with direct access to consumers.”

For farmers, we give preference to vendors whose products are grown within 75 miles of the market. Exceptions may be made for specialty items that are not produced locally. We give preference to farms in Nevada County and to those who farm organically and sustainably. For value-added & food vendors, we prefer those who use organic and/or locally-grown ingredients.
