AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE BROCKVILLE FARMERS' MARKET ASSOCIATION AND

VENDORS OF THE BROCKVILLE FARMERS' MARKET 2020

Each vendor placing goods for sale on the BROCKVILLE FARMERS' MARKET must agree to and comply with the terms

set out by this Agreement.

1. Each vendor shall pay a fee to the Brockville Farmers' Market Association in the amount designated by the

Association. Cheques should be made payable to the Brockville Farmers’ Market Association. The 2020 per stall fee

structure is:

PERMANENT/SEASONAL VENDOR - $270.00 Membership fee per season/per stall includes one time annual $30 administration fee

Daily Vendor – A one time annual administration fee of $10.00 and a daily fee of $20.00 per day/per stall Refunds

will be in accordance with the Refund Policy (excluding the administration fee).

2. Brockville Farmers' Market hours are as follows:

Permanent/Seasonal and Daily Vendors:

Thursday, & Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Vendors are expected to remain at their stand during the whole period of sale, i.e. from

8:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. unless previously arranged or because of extreme weather.

3. Each permanent/seasonal vendor must be present on the market a minimum of 15 days throughout the market season or forfeit the right to renew his/her allocated stall(s) (or same in close proximity) for the next year.

Market vendors shall not remain on the market grounds past 1:30 p.m. on any market day.

6. Vendors are limited to having two stalls on the Market and when possible, these stalls should be side by side. Therefore, all vendors must be aware that when renewing their stall(s) even with having met the attendance requirement, they will not necessarily be guaranteed the same stall(s), but will be given stall(s) in close proximity.

7. Stalls that become available will be allocated and assigned by the Executive of the Brockville Farmers' Market Association's taking into account the Market’s objectives and priorities and the enabling legislative framework.

All products offered for sale are subject to inspection by the City of Brockville, Health Unit, Province of Ontario, and/or Government of Canada.

11. All vendors agree to allow for an inspection of their product(s) and premises, if the need arises.
