BECOME A VENDOR

Ypsilanti Farmers Market vendors include small backyard farmers, full-time farming families, and urban farmers offering local agricultural products, jam, 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.

 

Growing Hope Offers Free Workshops for Market Vendors and Others!

Growing Hope partners with local experts to provide free educational training for food entrepreneurs and farmers looking to start or scale up their food businesses. These workshops build skills and knowledge around concepts such as business planning, cottage food laws, labeling laws, marketing, food safety, and selling at a farmers market for retail.

Growing Hope provides these workshops in partnership from the MI Small Business Development Center, SCORE – Washtenaw County, the Entrepreneurship Center at WCC, and SPARK East Incubator.  Support comes from Growing Our Local Economy: Washtenaw County Act 88 funds.
