We offer vendor stalls in two categories which are described below. We maintain our records through email. All requests must include scanned copies of government issued documents allowing the vendor to sell (Ag. Dept. CPC, Health Dept. license, business license, etc.) All new requests to participate are date stamped with the date taken from the email request. All requests expire on the first expiration date of the documents presented with the request.
- California Department of Food and Agriculture - Certified Producer Certificate (CPC) In this category the vendor must have a valid CPC issued by the county of origin where the farm is located. If the vendor is registered organic with the State of California, please include a copy of state issued papers. The request in this category should include a complete scanned copy of the CPC, any cold storage or warehouse documentation where product(s) are maintained, and any additional information that will help in the review process. Note: if your crops are not ready for market, please explain why you are applying in your cover email message (example: we begin harvesting next month and want to start our season in your market...). All vendors in this category MUST have employee agreements on file with Los Angeles County Ag. Dept.
- Los Angeles County Health Department This category pertains to all vendors that manufacture or prepare food items NOT licensed through the Department of Food and Agriculture. All items in this category must be pre-packaged; we do NOT allow food preparation of any kind at the market! The documents that need to be submitted for this category include a copy of the wholesale kitchen license and any agreements that show the vendor is legally connected with said kitchen, a menu or detailed list of the product(s) the vendor wants to offer, and photos of the product(s) with the IRQ labeling visible. The list should include the prices of said items. Any other marketing materials that will help in the review of the application may be submitted.
NOTE: The Venice Farmers' Market is not a swap meet and therefore, NO manufactured or crafted products, musicians, artisans, or non-profit groups are allowed to participate in the Venice Farmers' Market. We make no exception! Do not waste our time or yours trying to change our minds.
You MUST read our Operating
Rules before sending a request to participate. By submitting a request you are agreeing to obey and be bound by all rules and regulations as described in said Operating
Rules. Keep in mind, the market management is NOT here to teach or train your employees about City, County, State or Federal laws or regulations; this is the responsibility of the business owner.
Your submittal should be emailed to "Waitlist VeniceFarmersMarket Com". Please include your current telephone number and name of contact person. We will notify you when space is available; you do not need to follow up on this request.
Thank you in advance for your interest in our community and our Farmers' Market.
