We encourage the periodic participation of community members and organizations who are not regular vendors provided that their activities are consistent with the core mission of FOTS which is to connect our community with the local food system and showcase our region’s agricultural diversity. All requests must be submitted to the FOTS manager, approved by the FOTS Board, and comply with all FOTS policies regarding insurance and facilities usage. We welcome organizations and individuals that help to expand the scope of the market by, for example, increasing the customer base and partnering with FOTS on mutually beneficial projects. Conversely, we do not accept participation by individuals and organizations who are seeking to promote either a for-profit business or a non-profit organization with missions that are outside the purview of FOTS. Any sale of products and services or solicitation of donations must be approved by the FOTS Board.
