become a vendor
Interested in becoming a vendor?
Fill out a vendor application and return it to us via email or in-person at our markets!
The two types of applications differentiate between "growers" and "makers." "GROWERS" are farmers, ranchers or any type of operation growing or raising food. "MAKERS" are all other types of food vendors.
Galveston's Own Farmers' Market is a producer's-only food market dedicated to sourcing local food. GOFM is comprised only of vendors who grow their own products or make their own food products. The resale of products, crafts and nonfood items are not permitted. Eligible food products must be sourced within 150 miles of the market.
In your application, you must be as transparent and detailed as possible about your operation's methods, ingredients and philosophy. We value honesty and a commitment to local, sustainable systems and preference is always given to organic (uncertified or certified) operations. GOFM conducts site visits to all "grower" operations before approval. The vetting of applications is conducted by the entire Board of Directors and may take up to 3 weeks.
