Looking to become a vendor? Applications for the Kingston Farmer’s Market are handled through ManageMyMarket.com. To apply for the market, click here to get started. If you have already applied to any market in the past through Manage My Market, you can use your existing profile for this application as well. Please be sure to update your product list each season if there are changes.
The Kingston Farmer’s Market runs two independent markets with separate applications:
- Our Outdoor Market (Spring/Summer/Fall) runs weekly on Saturdays from the first week of May through the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Applications for this market open in January and close in early march
Applications for Outdoor Market 2021 are now closed.
- Our Indoor Market (Winter) runs bi-weekly on Saturdays from the first week of December through April. Applications for this market open in September and close in October.
Applications for Winter Market 2021 are now closed.
For both markets we accept Full Time as well as Rotating/Pop-up vendors, who appear in rotation through the season or just once or twice. If you would like to apply as a Full Time vendor but would be happy to Pop Up instead to increase your chance of being accepted, please mention that as a note on application. We have many waitlisted vendors each season and Pop Up vending is a good alternative for participation.

In order to reduce barriers to entry, and to increase transparency, the Kingston Farmers Market is pleased to release a list of product areas where there is a possibility of adding new, additional vendors, or expanding the product offerings of current vendors.
Please understand that this list is meant to serve as a tool for new applicants and returning vendors. The board considers many factors besides product lists when deciding which applications to accept. Just because something is on this list, does not mean that your application for that item will automatically be accepted.
