Farmers Market

Join us for the CAMDEN FARMERS MARKET!

 

Camden Comeback is pleased to be working with the Village of Camden to coordinate a weekly FARMERS MARKET in Camden, Ohio.

The Camden Farmer's Market will be held every Thursday (June-October) from 5:00 - 8:00 pm at the Veterans Park located at the corner of Central and Main Streets.

We like to invite vendors to participate to sell their goods and community members and visitors to join us there to get some great locally grown and handmade items.

Our mission for the Farmers Market is to provide availability to fresh, healthful food products and other items for Camden residents and visitors, while also providing a venue for local farmers, producers, cooks, bakers, crafters and artisans to gather to sell their fresh produce, food items and other products directly to customers. We can't wait to see you there.

VENDOR INFORMATION

Camden's new Farmers Market is open for the season!

The 2021 Camden Farmers Market is held every Thursday from 5:00 - 8:00 pm from June 10, 2021 through the last week of October 2021.   (See list of market dates in the schedule above.)

The market is located in Camden'e Veterans Park located at the corner of Central and Main Streets.. The Park is an ideal location for a Farmers’ Market. It is located near the heart of our Village, and is close to 127/725 intersection.

The Village of Camden is home to approximately 2,000 residents and shares borders with the cities of Eaton and Oxford. It is expected that market attendance will be excellent given the large number of potential market consumers and the convenient and highly visible location of the market. In an effort to bring high quality produce to our community and support our local farmers, we are asking all products sold at the market be local and all products sold by a specific vendor must be grown/made by that vendor. Purchasing and reselling items from a wholesaler is not allowed under any circumstances.

Vendors that are interested in selling at the Farmers’ Market are encouraged to complete and submit an application. Vendors may sign up for a 10 x 10 space (size of standard canopy tent) for the entire June-Oct. season for $50, or per date for $10 each date.  Market vendors that sign up for the full season ($50) and participate in at least 80% of the market days will be refunded $20.00 for their participation and commitment to the market and our community. After the $20.00 refund, your total space rental fee for the season is only $30.00.

Vendors that will be selling potentially hazardous foods that require refrigeration such as cheese, dairy, fish, meats, eggs and/or packaging breads and/or baked goods on-site may also need to obtain a Farmers’ Market/Seasonal Food License/Permit. Please follow Ohio Department of Agricultures’ guidelines.

At our Farmers Market Vendor page, you will find the list of rules & guidelines for vendors, a link to a PDF application that you can download, complete and return, or also the ability to sign up and pay online.

We hope you are interested in participating in our market and look forward to seeing you on June 10, 2021 at our Farmers’ Market opening day!
