Thank you for your interest in our market. Please read the information below and click at the bottom to download the Non-Profit Application Form.

The primary purpose of the Healdsburg Farmers’ Markets is to provide a venue for farmers to sell their produce. But the by-laws do allow for up to 3 non-profit booths per market.

  • Insurance is the responsibility of the organization. Market insurance does not cover non-profit vendors.

Rules for Set up at the Market

  • All activity must be confined to your assigned space, and must be peaceful and passive.
  • NON-PROFITS ARE SUBJECT TO THE SAME RULES AND REGULATIONS AS ALL MARKET VENDORS. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THEM ONLINE BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION.

  • If your organization attends the market for more than 4 consecutive dates, then the email blast should go out multiple times.
