AT THIS TIME, BECAUSE OF THE STATE MANDATES…WE ARE PRIORITIZING VENDORS IN THE FOLLOWING WAY:
Our market is first and foremost a place for our community to have access to fresh, local food. Because our market area is so large, we have been able to add great craft vendors and others to the market in the past and will continue to do so in the future. During this time, we are limiting the number of vendors and our food vendors will take top priority.
PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION AND LINKS ON THIS PAGE BEFORE CONTACTING US OR SENDING IN AN APPLICATION.
Prior to the pandemic, vendors who already purchased season permits will be honored for the season, which is why you will see non-food vendors at the market. If you are just now joining us, we will fit you in as we can.
If you are a vendor who sells FOOD as your primary business, we will process your application and fit you into the market as soon as a space opens up.
If you are a vendor who is a crafter or sells florals (plants) as your primary business, you will take second priority.
If you are a vendor who would like to promote your nonprofit or business, you will take third priority and we will contact you if a space is available for you.
Thank you for your understanding as we work through these state orders to bring local food to our community.
TO SUBMIT AN APPLICATION… READ THROUGH ALL THE LINKS BELOW AND EITHER EMAIL THE APPLICATION TO OFFICE@SIDNEYALIVE.ORG OR DROP OFF TO OUR OFFICE LOCATION ANY TIME, DAY OR NIGHT IN OUR MAIL SLOT IN OUR DOOR. MAILED APPLICATIONS TAKE 2-3 DAYS TO ARRIVE IN OUR OFFICE. All applications will be taken in order of when we receive them IN our office, not the postmarked date.

The vision of The Great Sidney Farmers’ Market is to link regional farmers, growers, and producers with consumers, putting fresh, wholesome, regionally sourced foods in the hands of those who most need and desire them.
The mission of The Great Sidney Farmers’ Market is to strengthen the health of our citizens and visitors; increase sales of our regional food producers and local businesses; improve the environment; and build community. We will accomplish this mission by providing a marketplace where farmers, growers, and producers will directly sell their fresh, regionally-sourced goods to consumers; and where community members can come together on a regular basis in a pleasant, safe, and festive atmosphere.
The Great Downtown Sidney Farmers Market is open each Saturday morning beginning in late May and running through the middle of October each year. The hours of the market are 8:00 am to noon each Saturday. Vendors come from all around the area to sell their wares.
The market is “the place to be” on Saturday mornings throughout the season. Crafters offer a large variety of homemade items, and farmers bring their freshest produce to tantalize your taste buds. Fresh baked goods and jams and jellies are always a crowd pleaser. Plants and flowers are abundant. Shop early for your best selection!
Entertainment is brought in on various occasions, and it all blends in with the ambiance of the court square to make each Saturday a great stroll around the downtown.
