Become A Vendor
The farmer’s market goal is to feature quality homemade & hand-crafted goods from local farmers and artisans. If you're a local farmer, gardener, artisan or cook/baker from Wythe County or the counties that surround it, consider becoming a vendor at the Wytheville Farmers Market! For our market, “local” is defined as those who are a Virginia resident and live within a 75 mile radius of Wythe County. It's a great way to grow your business, reach new customers, and to be a part of this growing community event. Our vendors have a voice in how the market is operated and we meet periodically to discuss what's working, opportunities, and issues. It can be a fun social experience and an opportunity to connect with new people - both customers and other vendors. Come check us out.
Application Process For Farmers
If you are interested in becoming a vendor, please contact the market manager. We offer spaces for full season vending as well as, single day vendors. All vendors must complete a vendor application prior to selling at the market.
The Pre-Season Meeting for 2022 vendors will be held March 21, 2022 at the Wytheville Farmers Marketing Building at 6:00pm.

Application Process for Artisans
The Wytheville Farmers Market (WFM) follows a jury process to review the work of potential artisan vendors prior to each market season. The jury will be comprised of community members that are not current vendors. Artisans that do not go through the jury process will not be invited to sell hand-crafted/artisan items at the market. Please bring a sampling of your product(s), along with your application, to your session and be prepared to answer questions about your product(s) and process. Prospective Artisan Vendors must also submit a Vendor Registration Form along with their Artisan Application Form.
To schedule your jury session, you must contact the market manager and schedule an appointment.
During the market season, the Wytheville Farmers Market Association Board of Directors will review artisan applications and products at pre-determined dates likely to be twice during May - October season. If you would like to sell hand-crafted artisan items for the 2022 season and need to be juried after the market opens in May, you must call the market manager to schedule an appointment. Please bring a sampling of your product(s), along with your application, to your session and be prepared to answer questions about your product(s) and process.
