Information for Vendors

Food & Flower Vendors

The Lake Forest Park Farmers Market is a food and agriculture focused market. Following guidelines set by the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market Advisory Board, we strive for a balance of products at our market. However, due to our focus on food and agriculture, we have extremely limited space for crafts vendors and do not host community businesses or nonprofits tents except as day sponsors.

If you are interested in participating, please contact us at [email protected].

The Lake Forest Park Farmers Market is a member of the Washington State Farmers Market Alliance. We carefully adhere to WSFMA rules.

Artists & Crafters

Crafts vendors are typically invited to participate at the farmers market for three special events per year. These include a Crafts Day in mid-July and two special harvest/holiday markets that are typically held in November and December.

Applications for the summer Crafts Day are typically posted in April, while applications for holiday markets are generally posted in September. Please check back for updates, or email us at [email protected] to be added to the interested vendor list.

The 2024 Crafts Day at the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market will take place on Sunday, July 21st from 10 AM to 2 PM. 

All items must be handmade in Washington by the individuals selling at the market. We seek a wide variety of media to represent a broad spectrum of creative endeavors and we look forward to seeing your submissions!

Below is the application with a detailed description of the application process. Please follow application guidelines carefully as the process continues to be updated. Please review the insurance requirements carefully before applying or purchasing single event policies.

All applications must be received by Monday, May 2oth for guaranteed consideration. Please note that applications will not be accepted via postal mail.

Vendor Insurance

All market vendors, including crafts vendors, are now required to carry Commercial Liability Insurance that does not exclude product liability.  Read the Vendor Insurance Information Sheet below for additional information about your options.

All vendors participating in our event will be required to submit a current Certificate of Insurance (COI) that names us as an Additional Insured (or that has a blanket insured provision). This is a requirement dictated by our own market insurer. Please see below for information about how to list us on your insurance.

If you already have a general liability policy, you should be able to quickly and easily obtain a COI naming us as an additional insured by emailing your agent with our name and address, or logging into your account, inputting our information, and downloading a certificate directly. Most insurers provide these free of charge, but some will charge for each Additional Insured.
