May 15th: Vendor Orientation

Please join the Clatskanie Farmers Market Board of Directors in welcoming our new Market Manager, Dimidy! She will be hosting our 2019 Vendor Orientation in the Clatskanie Elementary School Library on May 15th, 2019 at 5:30pm.

The orientation is required for all vendors in order to provide an overview to selling your products at the Clatskanie Farmers Market, a meet & greet with fellow vendors and the market management team, and a Q & A time! (Alternatively, you will need to work directly with the Market Manager to set up a time for your orientation.)

This is a potluck event, so please bring a dish to share for dinner – paper products and beverages will be provided.

Our agenda includes: 

  • Review of the 2019 Vendor Handbook, Vendor Application & booth pricing
  • Answers about which licenses, permits & insurance you might need, how to properly set up your booth space, and vendor layout & parking
  • Information on the Farm Direct Marketing Law, Producer-Processed Goods, Value-Added Products, Record Keeping, the Home Baking Bill and Food Labeling Requirements & Guidelines
  • The 2019 FDNP Farmer Update and details about our kids’ Power of Produce Program (PoP) – during which there will be an optional Crafter/Artisan Discussion Circle for non-farmer collaboration
