Become a Vendor
We're like family here. We only accept locally produced items. Our 2023 vendor application is available now! Apply by March 1 to be publicized as a full season vendor on our printed marketing material.
Our mission: To promote the development of a local sustainable food system.
Coffee Creek Farmers Market is in its eighth year of operation. We pride ourselves on being the first 'Producer Only' farmers market in Porter County. That means that ALL vendors grow, make, produce, and create the products for sale. Vendors include local farmers, specialty food producers, food trucks, and artisans.
We do have exceptions, such as local fruit and sweet corn,
in which case the item will include the farm of origin.
The 'Producer Only' model is important to small local businesses because the true cost of production is often significantly different compared to 'big box style businesses'. Think of a small local coffee shop compared to Dunkin' Donuts. By only accepting 'Producers' we create a more appropriate retail setting for our local community Farmers Market.
