Booth fees will not be refunded after Nov. 24th.

Payment

Once accepted we will send you a link to pay online, or you can pay via check made out to Carnation Farms.

Vendor Cancellation or No-Show
“No-shows” hurt the credibility of CF and negatively impact other vendors and customer satisfaction. Should a vendor need to cancel or alter attendance, the vendor shall notify the Market Manager as soon as possible, via phone or email, but no later than 48 hours prior to that week’s Market.

Cancellation / no show fee: If you are a no show or cancel after the 48 window prior to that week’s Market you will be charged a $150 fee. 

Booth Spaces: One 8 ft table and one chair will be provided.                              Only one person per booth space will be allowed.

Due to the smaller and limited booth space all items associated with your booth must be contained within your booth space. We do not have the ability to accommodate any hanging racks, or added tables to the booth space. Electricity is limited and will need to be arranged with market manager 24 hours prior to market day.

Market Closure: In the event of severe weather conditions that would close the Farmstand/Market vendors will either be refunded or rescheduled to another date (if possible).

Set Up: Set up for the Market can begin one hour prior to market open. You can unload in front of the Farmstand, but cars must be moved before market open.

Parking: Vendor parking will be in the gravel lot next to the Farmstand. Parking across the street is designated for customers only.

Lunch/Break: Vendors have the option of closing for a 30 minute lunch window and their booth door can be closed. This will need to be arranged with the market manager at least 24 hours prior to market day. At your own risk.

Clean Up: Each vendor agrees to thoroughly clean up their booth space at the close of each Market day.  This includes hauling away all trash that is generated in or around the booth and sweeping up any debris left on the ground. Vendors should bring supplies to clean their booths. Vendors need to be loaded up and off the property no later than 5:30 pm.

Vendors that will be joining us for both weekend days may leave their booth and products overnight at your own risk.

Carnation Farms is not liable for any lost, stolen, broken, or damaged goods.

Restrooms: Located inside the building. Restrooms are for employees and vendors only. No Public Access.

Failure to disclose product information and/or lack of licensing and permitting may result in the removal of products from the booth, or expulsion from the Market at the Market Manager’s discretion. All vendors must supply their own equipment for making sales, Covid safety supplies (masks, gloves, sanitizer, etc.), and sampling of any food products is prohibited.
