Market Rules

For Sellers & Customers

Standard Rules and Regulations for the GVFM

2021 Summer Season & Holiday Edition

    • Sales at the Farmers’ Market are limited to garden produce, locally handmade crafts, flowers, herbs, houseplants, and baked goods.
    • All items must be grown or made by the seller to support economic wellbeing and the development of home-based businesses. Store fronts or resale items are not allowed.
    • You must obtain a retail food sales license through the Gallatin Valley Environmental Health Department if you are selling food products. You can contact the Environmental Health Department at (406) 582-3120. You can also reach out to our manager and they can assist you further.
    • Sellers MUST provide their own tables, change, bags and advertising signs.  Sellers determine their own prices.
    • Sellers are required to be ready to sell when the market opens at 9:00 a.m. and sell until noon when the market ends.
    • Sellers MUST clean their own area at the conclusion of each market.  Be considerate and pick up trash whenever you see it. You will be charged a $25.00 clean up fee if your space has trash remaining.
    • Unreserved vendors for the market arrive at the fairgrounds parking lot through the Grand Gate at 7:45 am. Enter the gate, then drive to the exhibit buildings until you see a market table with market staff members. You will be given a number and at 8:00 the numbers will be drawn to determine who receives a space. You pay the market worker when chosen, then walk to the pavilion where you will be shown to a space.
    • The selling or giving away of animals is strictly prohibited.
    • No sales of alcohol or tobacco.
    • No advocation or medicinal products (no care providers, massage therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors or products taken orally or on the skin promising to relieve a medical condition.)
    • No petitions
    • No political or religious solicitation
    • NO smoking or dogs allowed under the pavilion.
    • All vendors and attendees must adhere to current Covid-19 rules and regulations imposed by the Gallatin Valley Health Department.
    • We are all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Please treat everyone with kindness and respect. Hate or bullying of any kind will not be tolerated.
