How to become a part of the St. Albert Farmers' Market: Step by Step

Step One:

Figure out what type of vendor you are, and fill out an appropriate application form. Although you require other documents (as detailed in the following steps), you can send us your filled out application first as long as you provide all the required documents to us before the first day you are approved to vend in the market.

Step Two:

Make sure your business/product complies with our market rules & regulations (Rules and regulations Website.pdf) also available on our applications. Also become familiar with the Public Market Vendor Rules and Regulations as set out by Alberta Health Services.

Step Three:

If you sell food, you are required to get a Homestudy and be aware of the Food Handling Requirements from Alberta Health Services. You can still send in your application before you have obtained those certifications, as long as you send the Market Manager or Assistant a copy before the first day you have been approved to vend at the market for.

All vendors should be aware of the Market Labelling Guide, Handwashing Stations, and Sanitization Solutions as regulated by Alberta Health Services.

Step Four:

ALL VENDORS require market insurance. The Alberta Farmers' Market Association offers a great insurance plan for all of their members. You can contact Gail Smook for more information on this plan.

Step five:

Send all documents off to the Farmers' Market Manager and/or Assistant. You can also fax the application to us (780-458-6515), or mail them to our office at the following address:
