1:00pm - 5:00pm

Open/Close

Hosted by the Ohio Farmers Market Network in collaboration with Central Ohio farmers markets, this Vendor Fair is designed to connect farmers markets, their managers, and vendors searching for direct-to-consumer opportunities to sell their products.

Few vendors know just how many farmers markets exist in Central Ohio (44!), or that they take place literally every day of the week. This is a chance to find your best fit! Find the market that works best with your schedule. Consider this an opportunity for all markets and vendors to find the best match.

This event will provide an opportunity for farmers markets to share information, answer questions, even collect applications for their upcoming season. Markets will be prepared with applications and information. What makes that market unique? How many customers does the market average per week? What events or services does the market offer to customers and/or vendors?

To plan refreshment needs, please RSVP - there is no cost to vendors to participate.

Join the OFMN to build stronger markets, a thriving local food economy and ultimately, put more money in your pocket!
