Vendors are expected to attend every week with the exception of the dates listed on the application.  The Village Center will be closed for Easter Sunday.

Failure to show up for two consecutive weeks (without prior notification) will give the Village the right to evoke your permit and reassign another vendor to your location.

Please be sure to notify us of any special space requirements at the time of your application (e.g. additional parking for vehicles). Spaces must have signage that clearly identifies the business name of the vendor and location.

Setup

All setup must take place between 9:30 and 10:30AM, and must be removed by 2:00PM on Sunday. Vendors arriving after 10:30AM will be allowed to set up, as long as space is available and it is safe to do so. If a late arrival is needed please notify us so that space can be set aside for you.

Cleanup

Each vendor is expected to clean his/her assigned spot at the end of each day and to keep it neat during the period that the market is open. Developing and keeping a good community image is key.

Products

Items must be grown, gathered, produced and/or processed on Long Island, NY. Specific products may be deemed ineligible for sale by the Economic Development Council and/or the designated market manager(s) if they are not representative of items for sale at the Farmers Market. If there are questions regarding the sale of specific items please contact us and/or provide detailed information with your application.  Specific products may be granted an exception if produced off Long Island, if such product is unavailable from a Long Island producer, and product is still deemed to be “local” within NY state, or neighboring state.

Competition

We strive to have a wide variety of products at the market from as many vendors as possible. Every attempt will be made to separate competing vendors in the market given that enough space is available to do so.

Additional Regulations

All vendors are responsible to understand and comply with Department of Agriculture and Health Department rules and regulations regarding growing, handling, processing, sampling, and vending their products. Additionally, vendors are responsible for complying with any other applicable laws and regulations regarding their participation in the market.
