February! Get involved with the DCM!

February may be a short month, but we will be busy getting ready for our 9th Market season in 2018!

Vendor Applications Open!

The Denton Community Market is a producer-only market. A producer-only market is defined as a market in which all items sold/offered are grown/produced by the producer of the product.

The Denton Community Market is a local market. Only products created within a 100-mile radius of Denton are allowed for sale. *Limited exceptions granted on a case-by-case basis for agricultural products that are not available locally. See ‘Farmers & Growers’ section of the handbook for more info.

Vendors may apply online: www.dentoncommunitymarket.com/apply/

The 2018 Vendor Handbook is required and offers important and useful information to prepare for the Denton Community Market and Vendor Application.

There is something very special about this market. Maybe it’s the entrepreneurial spirit of the vendors like you or the openness of vendors to work together and support each other. There are many reasons to join our market, and we hope you will!

Please reach out if you have any questions: Rachel Weaver, Vendor Coordinator: vendorcoordinator@dentonmarket.org
