Farmers Market accepting vendor applications

Winter may not know it ended last week, but that isn’t stopping Marquette from preparing for summer.

The Downtown Marquette Farmers Market is now accepting vendor applications for the 2014 season. The Farmers Market is held every Saturday throughout summer at the Marquette Commons. This year’s market begins on May 17 and ends October 25.

“The vendors are all decided before the season starts,” Myra Zyburt, Manager of the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market, said, “so we have almost a month of application period where people that are interested in being at the market submit the application and then we will review them and make a decision; those types of small businesses that’ll best fit the market atmosphere.”

Vendors fall into one of two categories: Season vendors commit to being there every Saturday throughout the season. Daily vendors participate as their schedule allows.

Applications are due Friday, April 11 by 5 p.m.
