In a recent interview on SUN 102, Simons highlighted the importance of timing in the application process. "This time of year, from January to March, is the best time to get your applications in," she emphasized. This proactive approach ensures that vendors don't miss out on opportunities, as late applications can be disappointing for both parties.

Simons emphasized the diversity of vendors welcomed at the market. "We offer a wide range of opportunities," she noted. Whether it's crafts, homemade goods, or commercial products, there's room for everyone at the Estevan Farmers Market.

For those considering food-related ventures, Simons outlined the certification requirements. "A vendor selling crafts or anything homemade that doesn't involve food has a simple application," she explained. However, for vendors dealing with food items, additional certification is necessary. "We have low-risk and high-risk food categories," Simons added, ensuring compliance with safety standards.

Moreover, the Estevan Farmers Market extended a warm invitation to fundraising groups. "We love to support our local community and give back," Simons affirmed. Fundraising groups were offered a free table for the outdoor summer season to sell tickets or organize fundraising events like pancake breakfasts or BBQ lunches.

Prospective vendors and non-profits are encouraged to reach out to the Estevan Farmers Market via email at to kickstart the application process. "It's very easy," Simons assured.

With a proactive approach to vendor recruitment and a commitment to supporting the local community, the Estevan Farmers Market is poised for another successful season, welcoming both new and returning vendors alike.
