WHO CAN BE A VENDOR?

Vendors at the Cotton Mill Farmers’ Market must produce their items in Carroll County, Georgia or an adjoining county, including Haralson, Paulding, Douglas, South Fulton, and Heard counties in Georgia, and Cleburne and Randolph counties in Alabama, OR within a 50 mile radius of downtown Carrollton.

 

All applications are subject to approval by the Market Board. The Market is operated by and for its members, who are the original producers of the items being sold.

The market is designed to support local, small-scale farmers, and gardeners with extra produce, by providing a marketing opportunity for their produce and farm-related items. Booths are to reflect this goal. Any crafted items are to be made primarily from what the seller’s land has produced, second hand and flea market type items are not allowed. No produce or other items of any kind may be purchased from another source by a member to be resold “as is”. The producers themselves, their family members or farm/garden workers are expected to be present at the market to sell their items.

Sustainable and organic farm practices are encouraged but are not required to be a vendor at the market. It is the responsibility of the customer to inquire as to the farming practices and the application of any synthetic chemicals by a particular vendor. All products must be raised, harvested, prepared for resale, packaged, and displayed in accordance with proper local, state, and federal regulations
