The North San Diego Certified Farmers Market is a recurring weekly market, and our vendor structure is designed to respond to our shoppers' preferences.
Shoppers at the North San Diego Certified Farmers Market are often weekly regulars, and over time are more likely to make purchases from the vendors they see consistently at the market; our market-vendor emphasis therefore is on vendors looking to make an ongoing commitment to being at the market on a scheduled and regular basis.
Vendor fees can be paid by cash, check payable to NSDCFM, or by Credit Card (Amex, MasterCard, Visa, Discover).
All Credit Card transactions will be charged an additional 5% processing fee.
The farmers market does not provide canopies, tables, chairs, weights, tent stakes, hot water to fill individual hand-wash stations or access to power; we provide only the designated space for you to set up in. Vendors are responsible for providing everything used in the set-up and operation of their market display.

For Agricultural Producers (Farmers), we require a "Certified Producer" Certificate by the San Diego County Department of Agriculture, or certification by a neighboring county and authorization to sell at a certified farmers market within San Diego County.
If you will be offering live plants, cut flowers, or other nursery stock shown on your CPC, we require a copy of your valid License to Sell Nursery Stock when applicable, and a signed Nursery Stock Vendor Statement.
All Certified Farmers should review the CPC Self-Inspection and the Market's Food Vendor Checklists to ensure compliance with all items.
Vendors offering live plants or other nursery stock are required to submit a copy of your valid License to Sell Nursery Stock when applicable, and a signed Nursery Stock Vendor Statement.
For all sellers offering food products, whether prepared on site or prepackaged, we require that the vendor have an appropriate County of San Diego Department of Environmental Health Temporary Food Facility Vendor Permit. The original permit must be posted in the booth at all times; photocopies will not be accepted.
Permitted mobile food facilities (Food Trucks) may participate in the Farmers Market on a space-available basis without being required to obtain any additional EHP permits, however if the Food Truck vendor wishes to set up using a conventional vendor canopy either because space does not allow for the truck or for any other reason, the vendor WILL BE required to have the additional and appropriate County of San Diego Department of Environmental Health Temporary Food Facility Vendor Permit.
For new food vendors going through the initial EHP permit process and in need of a commitment from an event in order to complete their permit process, the North San Diego Certified Farmers Market may be able to assist you by pre-scheduling you for a start date with us, subject to space availability. Please contact the Market Manager, Claire Winnick at (858) 735-5311, to discuss this further.
All Food Vendors should review the Market's Food Vendor Checklist to ensure compliance with all items.
The "Sellers Permit" we ask for copies of is for California Sales & Use Tax
You can register for a seller's permit online, or in person at one of the Board of Equalization field offices:
If you will be offering live plants or other nursery stock even as an incidental component of your display, we require a copy of your valid License to Sell Nursery Stock when applicable, and a signed Nursery Stock Vendor Statement.
Applicants must provide a copy of an Independent Consultant Agreement, or other documentation of their status with the Direct Sales Company; alternately we will accept a copy of your personal "Sellers Permit" for California Sales & Use Tax
