Vendor Information and Application
We are establishing a farmer's market at the Columbia Colonnade,
aka the mall at Buckhorn!
The space is familiar, earth-toned, and snazzy.
This is a very high profile location. It will be a comfortable year-round market in a 4,000 square foot storefront.
The potential customers are health-conscious folks that walk the mall for exercise, visit Planet Fitness and Dunhams Sports, families that regularly attend classes there, and many who work at Geisinger.
There's great parking! and a good back-door loading/unloading zone for vendors to use.
There's a private bathroom for vendors, and a customer bathroom about 450' down the corridor.
The business hours are 3 days a week: Thursday, Friday, Saturday from 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Storage space is available for vendors attending consecutive days.
We plan to do social media advertising for each vendor and the whole market, including notifications to our 5,000+ followers of the opportunity to shop there.
We plan to do educational outreach about our local economy, food security, and our Appalachian ecosystem.
Social media training will be offered to vendors as a marketing tool, and all vendors are encouraged to post, tag, share, like, send, go live, create stories and more!
Events, classes, local bands, & giveaways, are all being planned to help us create a buzz for new and repeat customers.
We must require all vendors to have a liability insurance policy for their products (this includes craft vendors). Before the market starts, we will need to have a copy of your policy with “Greenwood Farm LLC” listed as additional insured. There are many companies who can provide this, but we have listed some suggestions below.
The FLIP insurance is what we use for our farm products.
Please let us know if you need help with this step.
We can offer a liability waiver for those who would like to attend once every other month.
Due to the limit on our space for tables, we will save all applications as a waiting list to fill any gaps, and also in case we can expand.
