Why Should You Become a Vendor at the TFM?

The Tonopah Farmers Market invites you to make money for your organization or business at the 2014 Tonopah Farmers Market, by providing produce/food /meals/products/services for purchase to our customers & vendors.  

WHY would you consider participating this year?

 

  1. ·        Historically, individuals and organizations that have sold at the TFM have been successful in sales.
  2. ·         Your organization will earn a 100% net profit. At best, most other fundraisers offer a 50% profit .
  3. ·         The TFM averages several hundred customers each week.  This is a great opportunity to advertise for your group or business, share information about your group/business, and/or raise additional funds for your non-profit group by selling raffle tickets or other items at your booth in addition to the food/meals.
  4. ·         2014 is the 9th season for the TFM.  It is volunteer led/driven, is known for its integrity and provides a wonderful service to our community.
  5. ·         Our survey for the past 8 years shows that most people come to the market for fresh produce and   Food (i.e., ready-to-eat)

 

·         What YOU would need to provide:

 

  1. ·         Contact us and request the date(s) you’d like to participate by providing meal items.  The 2014 TFM season is Mondays, 4pm – dusk, July 21 - Sept. 29, at the Pocket Park on Hwy 95 in front of the Fire Dept.  in Tonopah.  Date availability is on a first come/first served basis.
  2. ·         Table(s), chair(s), and if possible, a 10 x 10 canopy.  A canopy is not mandatory, but will define your space, provide shade and give visual presence to your booth.

 

 

  • ·         SIGNS!  We can’t say enough about the importance of signage.  You should bring a colorful large poster identifies your organization/business. Customers get added value from getting to know where their food is coming from.  ALSO – please bring large signs that say what food items you are selling, and their prices.
  • ·         FOOD!  You will need to provide read-to –eat food items/meals for purchase for the public.  Please insure that these are safe for consumption and handled accordingly. 
  • ·         HAND-WASHING!  Health Regulations dictate that each food booth have an onsite hand-washing procedure.  You can accomplish this by simply providing anti-bacterial hand gel and disposable paper towels for all those who work at your booth.  People who handle money should not handle the food unless they first don gloves – OR they need to use the gel every time they handle the money – before touching the food.

 

 ADDITIONALLY:

·          The 10 x 10 market space to sell your food at the TFM will be available to non-profit organizations AT NO CHARGE.   Local Gardeners pay $3/week for a 10 x 10 space; Businesses only pay $5/week for a 10 x 10 space.

·         The TFM will provide liability insurance for all vendors AT NO CHARGE.

·          Please feel free to promote your participation at the TFM to your “fans”, mailing lists and social media networks.  We will do the same – for YOU! 

To reserve which Market date(s) you'd like to participate at, please contact me at mnmfarris@aol.com or 775-277-0165.   I look forward to hearing from you soon.  Once we have established which date(s) you'll be attending, I will send you a brief application form.  

Thank you for your consideration,

Mary Farris, TFM Market Manager
