This Week at the Farmers Market

Hello DFM Shoppers, 

It is hard to believe, but we’re already planning for 2021! Courtney and I are working to make the new year a better, brighter year at the market than years past. We’re brainstorming how to bring back market favorites like: live music, demos, and educational programs in a safe and healthy environment. We’re also working on how to support our non-profit friends at market and provide opportunities for our young entrepreneurs. We have tons of ideas and are very excited for the new year. 

But, our first step to making DFM a great market is building our 2021 vendor list –– without vendors there wouldn’t be a market. We are now accepting vendor applications for 2021! DFM is a producer-only, local market that accepts vendors who reside and produce items within 100 miles of Davidson. We look for produce and meat, dairy and cheese, plants and flowers, beauty and wellness, speciality food items, prepared foods, food trucks, beverage, baked goods, and more. 

We open applications once a year and accept all vendors for the following season. We spread the news by word of mouth, vendor reference, and approach vendors we think might be a good fit. We also rely on our shoppers to tell us what they would like to see at the market. If you have any vendor suggestions, please do not hesitate to let us know –– we’re always looking for new items to add to the market. 

If you’re interested in becoming a DFM vendor in 2021, please download and complete the application. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, December 1st. If you know of a vendor who you think would be a great fit, share the application with them or let us know. 

As for the rest of this year; keep a close eye on the new items showing up at the market as we head further into fall and soon winter. Plus, this year DFM is hosting THREE holiday markets in December for all your holiday shopping and dinner needs. Lots to look forward to these next couple of months! 

Happy eating,
Justin
