We are posting today to let all of our followers and customers know that we are planning for the 2021 market season. This is just the first step in getting the word out that we will be having our market on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting on June 2nd, 2021.
We are looking for vendors to fill out our market, especially produce vendors (since we ARE a Farmer’s market), but all other types of vendors, as well. We do ask that if you would like to vend at our market that your inventory be something that you grow, produce with your own hands, or something that you put significant work into. We do have limited space, so we may HAVE to limit the numbers of like items.
This year is still going to be a little bit different from previous years because all of our vendors will have to produce and acquire their own market vendor insurance with Westcliffe Farm and Makers Market as an additional insured (and make sure that we have proof of said) and each vendor will have to acquire their own sales tax license from the town of Westcliffe (which we will need a copy of). The market will no longer be collecting and submitting sales tax for the vendors.
The forms for vendor registration and application are available on this website under the tab Calling All Vendors. If you want to be a part of the market. please visit that tab and get a more in depth view of what is required.
Another piece of information…the market is looking for a new market manager. This is a very part time position (10 – 12 hours per week). The market manager is responsible for running the market. taking care of the vendors. collecting fees and paperwork from the vendors. and weekly data entry for the market. If this is something you might be interested in, please call Lynda Hitt at 719-213-9498.
