We will be setting up at the Courthouse Park starting Saturday; June 6th from 9-12. Tables and chairs will be available to vendors on a first come, first serve basis. The market will be held every Saturday unless weather prohibits.
Cheyenne County Farmers Market will provide state required hand washing station(s) and will follow state COVID guidelines for Farmers Markets in the state of Kansas. You can view these on the website under Food Safety for Kansas Farmers Market Vendors: Regulations and Best Practices.
Vendors will register one time for the season on the website under Vendor Procedures and Agreement. Vendors will be required to follow state rules for licenses, weights, and paying sales tax. At the end of each market, vendors will submit a Market Sales Report and pay the farmers market board 15% of sales. Included in that 15% is the sales tax for the day which the board will then pay to the state on the vendors behalf. This will reduce hassle and paperwork for our vendors while helping them to comply with state tax laws.
Prices won't be regulated but it's important to charge fair market value so we don't undercut grocery stores or farmers making a living selling produce.
Please bring questions or concerns directly to the coordinator.
A new addition this year will be online ordering. The website will be open for online orders for people / vendors uncomfortable interacting with the public or unable to get out. You will be able to see what’s available and order Monday thru Thursday. Your order will be boxed and ready for pickup or delivery Saturday of the same week.
The website address is: https://cncofarmersmarket.com/ Check out our vendors, the online store, and everything that is happening with the Farmers Market.
I want to encourage you to participate as a vendor and also as a customer! We look forward to providing this need to Cheyenne County.
