VFMA is now accepting applications to sell at the Vandenberg Village Farmers’ Market from potential vendors who sell products under the new Cottage Food Laws. Applicants must have a Cottage Food Category A or B certification with registration number.
UPDATE: VFMA currently has enough "sweets" vendors for the Vandenberg Village Farmers' Market. If you make and sell a product OTHER THAN: cookies, breads, chocolates, cake-pops, cupcakes, cakes, etc. please keep reading, fill out an application and send it via email to VFMA.
VFMA would like each product to have at least one locally produced ingredient, this way these products will tie-in better with the farmers’ market. Fee for a "booth" is 5% of your gross sales each week.
These laws are very new, please expect that there will be some kinks to work out.
