Application for Membership in the Association
The Santa Barbara Certified Farmers Market Association operates 8 markets a week, rain or shine, all year round. We are a grower-owned association registered as a non-profit mutual benefit corporation with the State of California. All applicants must obtain a certified producer's certificate from their local Agricultural Commisioner's Office before submitting the application form. Our association does not allow second certificates or peddlers in our markets, nor do we allow crafts. All of our farmers markets are approved for dairy, meats, poultry, and wine (limited to 2 booths.) Non-agricultural products, including seafood direct from area fisherman, are limited as well.
Community Access Booths at the Market
Availability of space in the market: SBCFMA's priority is to make space available to farmers and other vendors as permitted by our conditional use permit. No space in the market is reserved for community groups, and access is subject to there being a space available. We do not accept applications from political organizations. Political candidates, however, are welcome to submit an application but must be personally present at the farmers market. Groups who submit applications are not guaranteed space in our markets. The SBCFMA has the right to reject any application as they see fit.
First come, first served: Groups that wish to set up an information booth at SBCFMA markets must contact the office by letter or fax and indicate the date(s) they wish to attend. Space will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, provided that the group meets the criteria (see Download Application below).
Please note: SBCFMA does not accept applications for the following farmers markets: Tuesday State Street (no physical space available), Wednesday Westside at Harding School, Thursday Camino Real Marketplace, and Sunday Camino Real Marketplace.
