NEW LOCATION: Morris Public Library Square
If you are a farmer, a small grower, or perhaps a just a big gardener with a “green thumb”, we need you at the Morris Area Farmers Market! Here is a great opportunity to get started: the Morris Area Farmers Market is offering a one day free pass for new vendors to sell at the market. The current MAFM vendors want you to give us a try, and invite you to be a part of our growing and flourishing Morris Area Farmers Market.
The Morris Area Farmers Market is a place where farmers, growers, producers and artisans sell their products directly to the public, and customers have a direct relationship with the producer of the items they purchase. This market emphasizes product quality, freshness and originality, with items produced and sold locally.
MARKET DAYS AND HOURS: Thursdays, 3 pm to 6 pm
LAST DAY: Until end of season
LOCATION: Morris Public Library Square, just off 6th Street and Oregon Avenue in downtown Morris
Interested and potential vendors must complete the 2016 Application Form and return it one week before selling at the market. Hard copies of the application are also available at the Morris Healthy Eating booth.

After trying out the Morris Area Farmers Market as a “vendor for a day”, we hope that you will decide to continue selling your products at the Farmers Market. The daily rate is $5, or you can purchase a full-season vendor pass for $35. The Market Advisory Committee reviews all vendor applications for consistency with Morris Area Farmers Market guidelines. MAFM guidelines can be found attached to the 2016 application form.
