Becoming a Vendor

MattInterested in becoming a vendor?

All vendors make, bake, grow or raise what they sell at our market. We do not allow any second-hand goods, imported items, or items which have been purchased for resale.

Our applications for the 2016/17 Winter Season are now open. All new prepared food vendors, liquor vendors and artisan crafters will be required to attend a jury panel prior to be accepted as RCFM Vendors. Please note that all vendors are now required to carry insurance.

Paperwork Makes the World Go Around

All those intending to sell prepared food items should carefully review our market guidelines as well as the Fraser Health Authority Guidelines, available in our Form Library. For questions regarding the Fraser Health Authority Guidelines or to apply to have your prepared foods approved for sale at the market, contact the New Westminster Environmental Health Officer:
