Frequently Asked Questions 

 

For certified Farmers

What do I need to become a vendor?

All certified farmers need to submit in their application their CPC number. If you are planning on selling organic products, we will also need the certified organic number and the issuing company. You will then need to get an agricultural permit from the issuing county to sell at the market.

 

For Certified Farmers

I am not a certified farmer, can I still sell at the market?

No. WCFMA operates certified farmers' markets. All produce needs to be certified by the California Department of Agriculture in order to be sold at a certified farmers' market. 

 

For Food Vendors

What do I need to become a vendor?

All gourmet food vendors need to make their products in commercial kitchens (with exception of cottage kitchen vendors). You will then need to get a health permit to sell at the market from the issuing county.
