Hi GVFM Vendors!

We will be hosting a VENDOR ORIENTATION on JUNE 6th, FROM 4-6PM AT THE HAYNES PAVILION AT THE GALLATIN COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS.

It is MANDATORY for all new vendors to attend and HIGHLY ENCOURAGED for all vendors to attend.

This orientation will cover topics like general introductions to manager and staff, updated information on regulations and licensing, a brief presentation on the new SNAP program, as well as proper procedures for load-in and tear down. We also will be hosting some guest speakers that will discuss more opportunities and resources for all vendors. Please see the brief agenda below.

This is the best time to locate your space before the first market, ask market manager Sarah any questions you may have and ease first market jitters!

PLEASE JOIN US on June 6th, from 4 to 6 pm in the Haynes Pavilion at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds in Bozeman. 901 N. Tracy, Bozeman MT, 59715.
