Become a Vendor

Only Local Farmers Market represents all local farmers and producers in and around the Idaho Panhandle. Only Local represent the best local food of northern Idaho.  

Become a Vendor

Only Local is a producer-only market. Vendors must be directly involved in the products sold (grown, produced, or handmade/fabricated) to sell at the Market. The re-selling of products produced by others is prohibited unless given specific approval by the management of Only Local Farmers Market.

To maintain the trust of our customers and to insure Only Local is a producer-only market, all vendors may undergo an inspection of their farm or production facility. This inspection will be conducted by Only Local management. Market inspections do not include financial records or personal property.

Vendors are responsible for obtaining all required permits, licenses and/or inspections applicable to their products (such as Health Department, USDA, IRS, etc.).

Only Local does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sex, religion, physical ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or nationality. All are welcome at Only Local.

Specialty & Cottage Food Vendors

As a year-round farmers’ market, specialty and cottage foods are a mainstay for Only Local.

Consumers want local meat and poultry, cheeses, milk, and eggs. Baked goods, jams, jellies, honey, and sweets keep our customers coming back for more. They no longer have to wait for the summer “farmers’ market” to enjoy these fresh, local products – they have you to supply them year-round!

 

  • Specialty food vendors must use locally produced goods as the main or featured ingredient in their products. Vendors are urged to provide appropriate signage to advertise their use of ingredients.
  • Sales of prepared foods are intended for off-site consumption only. Sales of food items for immediate consumption at the market are prohibited.
  • Specialty foods must be prepared in a certified commercial kitchen, with the exception of Cottage Foods, which must follow cottage food guidelines. See this PDF for more information.
