Vendor Rules and Regulations

RULES AND REGULATIONS of the Pine Ridge Road Farmers Market:

  • Market hours are from 9AM to 2PM. Rain or shine. Vendors are not to leave before 2PM!
  • All vendors MUST have a tent and weights to secure it with! Minimum 15 lbs per leg. Vendors who don’t have weights will not be allowed to set up! Water bottles are no longer acceptable. If the Market Manager or staff tells you not to put up your tent or to take it down due to strong winds, you must do so immediately, as these conditions can endanger both vendors and customers. Maximum tent size per space is 10’x10′.
  • Vendors must finish unloading their products and move their vehicles outside the market area to a location designated by the Market Manager prior to the market’s opening hour.
  • Vendors must keep their spots clean. Vendors are responsible for leaving their space at the end of the market in the same condition as it was before the market — clean and free of debris.
  • It is strictly forbidden to use the Plaza dumpsters!
  • All food vendors must have their own garbage pails. All vendors must dispose of their own trash.
  • All food vendors must have floor covering to protect the parking lot surface.
  • All vendors must vacate the premises by no later than 3:30PM!
  • Vendors are to use the designated parking area ONLY: located behind the Hope building (see picture below). This is not only required from the vendors alone, but also from ALL members of their crew!! Vendors must make sure that all the people helping them are parking their vehicles in the designated area only!!
  • Vendors must unload their products first and move their vehicles outside the market area as soon as possible before setting up to allow an easier flow of traffic for other vendors. Also, at the end of the market, vendors must break down first before they bring their vehicles back to the market area for loading. Please, be considerate of other vendors.
  • Vendors are NOT allowed to drive their vehicles into the market area before 2PM under any circumstances! Unless we have to close the market early due to weather conditions and only if the Market Manager/staff announces so. If you have to leave because of emergencies, please bring your vehicle to the edge of the market and carry your things to your car.
  • If you know that you can’t make it to the market, please be courteous and call/text/email us! Preferably the latest by Saturday night, so we can make arrangements to fill your spot – as empty spaces affect your neighbors and the whole market. If you have an emergency, or the weather forecast suggest rain, we’ll understand that you can’t make it, but please inform us that you won’t be there.
  • Children under 12 need to be supervised at all times and have to remain by your side or they won’t be allowed to accompany you to the market. As per the Plaza’s safety requirements, children are not allowed to roam around the parking lot or climb the trees!
  • Items listed by vendor on page 1 of 3 of the Vendor Application form are the only items that the vendor will be permitted to sell, unless approved otherwise by the Market Manager.
  • The Market Manager reserves the right to terminate any vendor without cause at any time with a 7-day notice.
  • Any vendor who misses more than 2 consecutive markets will lose their designated space and will forfeit any remaining funds. If Market Manager approves, vendor can re-enter the market starting a new term.
