Become a Vendor

Growing Hope vendors include small backyard farmers, full-time farming families, and urban farmers along with cheese, jam, eggs, baked goods, artisan soaps and crafts.

Our vendors come from up to 90 miles away and have anywhere from none-at-all to 35 years of experience running their small businesses. We are proud of the diversity of businesses that our vendors own and share with us each market season.
