The Fishers Farmers' Market strives to be an accelerator for local food entrepreneurs grow new businesses. It is not our intent to penalize concession and/or prepared food vendors for being successful, but our goal is to provide opportunities and support for emerging food producers rather than larger, well-established businesses. 

The reality is that some food businesses are simply too big for the farmers' market. We generally do not approve vendors with more than one brick-and-mortar (retail) location and prefer to provide market space to vendors who do not have retail stores.

Other vendor selection criteria include:

  1. History with the Fishers Farmers Market including but not limited to: adherence to market rules and regulations; number of years participated in the market; weekly market attendance/tardiness record; and payment of fees.
  2. History of Health Department violations.
  3. Enhancement of overall product mix at the market without creating excessive supply of any one product as determined by the Market Manager and selection committee.
  4. Quality of products for sale by vendor as well as attractiveness and presentation of products/displays at vendor’s booth.
  1. We no longer accept new Home-Based Vendors (HBV); all new vendors must prepare their products in a commercial kitchen to better ensure the health and safety of our customers.
