RB Farmers Markets 2017
Thinking About Becoming a Bushwick Farmers Market Vendor?
The markets will be pushing the envelope this year, with an extended season, more locations, and new, money-saving season vendor discount packages. We are looking for farmers, local food makers, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and community-based organizations to join the market and infuse the 2017 season with new energy and excitement!
Over the years, Bushwick Farmers Market has established itself as a great way for artisans, businesses, and CBOs to get some invaluable “face time” with customers. It is a springboard for local food business startups and other entrepreneurs, with a welcoming and supportive environment, and friendly rates. One returning vendor recently told us, “Thanks for all your help last year. You couldn't have been more accommodating!”
For more information and a vendor application, see the RBSCC website or reach out to your new market manager, Ali Toxtli via email at BushwickCooks@rbscc.org or by calling (862) 249-5672. First-timers welcome. ¡Hablamos Español!
