Becoming a Vendor
Vendors are the backbone of the Keller Farmers Market. KFM has enjoyed a reputation for relationship building among its vendors, and has been instrumental in “launching” several local businesses to the next level of their success.
KFM above all else is an outlet for local food producers who want to bring “fresh and local” food to the community. When considering space allotment, as a farmers market we support first local and Texan farmers. Secondly, we support non-farming vendors who demonstrate a commitment to local food production with products made in Texas. Lastly, we support a few local artisan and craft makers who produce their products in Texas.
KFM does not accept vendors who are a multi-level or direct marketing business, nutritional supplements, or imported products. KFM does not allow any products containing CBD oil, or other forms, made for human consumption.
Keller Farmers Market desires to give back by featuring organizations that add value to our community through education or outreach. For this reason, we offer one (1) Community Booth space almost every Saturday during market season at no cost. Our only request is that the organization promote its attendance at KFM.
In order to keep a good balance between farm and produced foods, we currently have a waiting list for foods prepared onsite, dessert and baked goods, and sweets vendors. We encourage you to submit an application, though, since if/when spots become available, we will fill them from pending applications.
We feel that a successful farmers market is a market with a diverse group of products, and with a good balance between the number of the consumers and the number of vendors. It is important that you provide the most accurate estimate of your expected attendance as possible to allow us to balance site use with member participation.
The Board of Directors, Executive Director, Market Manager, vendors, and volunteers, work together to ensure the continued success of the market by creating a fun, education-filled, family atmosphere and community gathering spot during the market season.
Vendors may now easily pay their application fee and the vendor booth fees online.
