Become A Market Vendor
The mission of the NOFM is to support local farmers, promote locally grown food and natural handmade products and to foster social spirit in the community.
The NOFM was founded on the principal of being producer-based. This means that the products sold at the Market must be grown, raised, produced or manufactured by the approved Market Vendor within Ontario.
The Market Vendor is the owner of the business (farm, home-based business, bakery, food concession, etc.) who is growing, raising, producing or manufacturing all of the items offered for sale at the Market. The Market Vendor must complete the North Oshawa Farmers’ Market Vendor Application and Agreement and be approved by the NOFM Board of Directors.
Eligible products are divided into 3 Product Categories:
