Information for Potential Vendors

  • The Middletown Farmers Market is a producer only market.  Vendors must grow or make what they sell, or provide a specific service.
  • Resale/retail does not apply to most products at the Market.  All resale/retail products must be approved by the Market Managers through a specific process, and are clearly identified for customers.
  • Arts and crafts being handcrafted by local artisans are permitted for sale, but must meet strict criteria and be approved in advance by the Market Manager.

  • Vendors are required to hold the certifications and licenses required for their products by Maryland Department of Agriculture, the Frederick County Health Department, and/or the Frederick County Office of the Fire Marshal.
  • Vendors must live within 50 miles of the market, or within a one hour drive.  While proximity to the market is considered, it does not ensure your ability to join--many other factors are considered.
