We are always looking for new farmers, artisans, and artists who would like to sell their products through the Market. Although we have “Gilmanton” in our name, we serve vendors in the greater Belknap/Merrimack counties region.
The core trade at Gilmanton’s Own Market is food and other agricultural products, and those products have priority for space. But we have a great range of other home-made artisanal goods and creative work. The main limitation is that everything we sell has to be grown or produced in the local area, and it has to be high quality (of course!).
If you are interested in selling your products at the Market please review our GOI Producer Guidelines, available here: goi-producer-guidelines2019 and fill out the Vendor Application available here: GOIAPPLICATION2019. Please also feel free to talk to any member of the Board of Directors, or contact us by emailing email@example.com . We are happy to talk with you.
IF YOU ARE A CURRENT VENDOR AND ARE THINKING OF BRINGING A NEW PRODUCT TO THE MARKET: You are welcome to bring in new products that are very close in kind to what you already offer through the Market, although it is important to consult with the coordinator you work with. For example, bakers might try a new kind of baked good, a knitter might do mittens as well as socks, vegetable growers might bring in new produce. If you wish to bring in goods in a new category, you should fill out an Addendum to Application to be considered by the Board. For example, a vegetable grower may consider baking, a crafts person may consider providing eggs or vegetables, etc.
INVENTORY LIST FORMS FOR CURRENT VENDORS: Life is hectic at the beginning of the Market day and we want to make sure we enter your inventory and prices correctly (so you get paid the right amount!). This year we are asking all vendors to bring a filled-in inventory sheet with you when you bring your goods to Market. Below this paragraph you will see the connection to bring up either version you want: Excel or Word. (Doesn’t matter to us.) You have 2 options. Either bring up the form you want, fill it in, and print it, then sign. Or bring up the form you want, print it, and fill it all in by hand. If you don’t have a printer we will have printed forms available for you to take home and use. Pick one up for the next time when you drop off your goods.

ALSO: Please help us make sure we have updated bar codes and bar code labels for you for all your products. It is the bar code system that makes sure our electronic records track your inventory and sales accurately.
