Vendor and Entertainer Information

The Brunswick Main Street Market is a community driven destination farmers market bringing together the best local farmers, artisans, food trucks, and entertainers.

Applications ARE being accepted for the 2024 Season! 

However, the Indoor/Winter market season is only open to vendors who participated in the previous regular season.

You may be contacted to provide any additional needed information and/or samples of your product for review by market staff.

The market accepts applications from potential vendors all regular-season long.

We encourage potential vendors to visit the market prior to submitting an application.  However, no decisions regarding applications will be made during market hours.

Information for Potential Vendors

  • The Brunswick Main Street Farmers Market is a producer only market.  Vendors must grow or make what they sell, or provide a specific service.
  • Vendors must live within 50 miles of the market (or within a one hour drive.)  While proximity to the market is considered, it does not ensure your ability to join–many other factors are considered.
  • Resale does not apply to most products at the Market.  All resale products must be approved by the market’s Manager through a specific process, and are clearly identified for customers.
  • Arts and crafts being handcrafted by local artisans are permitted for sale, but must meet strict criteria and be approved in advance by the Market Manager.
  • Flea Market and Yard Sale items are not permitted for sale.
