Information for Prospective Vendors

Thank you for your interest in selling at the Waltham Farmers’ Market. We are a 28-year-old, volunteer-run organization. We run a friendly, rain-or-shine, outdoor market with a focus on farmers and food producers. We also have home goods and crafts vendors in the market. We generally host 5 produce farms during the season, 25-30 other food producers, and 5-10 non-food vendors. Due to the high volume of returning vendors, a very limited number of new vendor spaces are available.

Vendors we host:

  • Massachusetts farmers
  • New England-based food producers working in a certified kitchen, with serve-safe training/certificate
  • New England-based producers of home goods and crafts, with a preference for Waltham businesses
  • Waltham-based non-profits (fee waived)

We do not host:

  • Resellers of purchased products
  • Selling clubs: Avon, Tupperware, HerbaLife, Amway, etc
  • Service businesses: chiropractors, solar installers, body workers, salons, gyms, etc.


TIME: The market is held rain or shine, 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM every Saturday for 22 weeks, from mid-June through early November.

LOCATION: In the municipal parking lot at Waltham Government Center, 119 School Street, at the intersection of School & Lexington Streets in Waltham. Vendors park in the parking lot of St. Mary’s. 

SIZE: We attract an average of 1,200 shoppers per week. There are approximately forty 10 x 10 foot tent spaces.

OPTIONS: We offer vendors full-season passes ($325) and half-season passes ($200), on a space-available basis.
We also host guest vendors – the guest vendor fee is $100, paid in advance. This fee entitles a seller to attend up to 4 weeks at the market.

All vendors are scheduled in advance for specific weeks of the season. Vendors who miss the market, without notice, forfeit the fee for that week.
