The Capital City Farmers Market is held every Thursday in May through October from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Mill Hill Park located at 165 E. Front Street, Trenton, NJ. Each week the market draws around 2,000 visitors -- workers from the surrounding state/government offices and private businesses, as well as residents and tourists. The market features Jersey Fresh farm produce and regional producers, artisanal food, specialty produce, baked goods, handmade crafts, jewelry, all natural body and face care products, entertainment and much more.
We're a close and growing community. Our long-term vendors have a dedicated base of loyal fans, and several have gone on to open brick and mortar stores after growing with us. Our goal for 2017 is to continue to grow the CCFM. In an effort to do this, we are looking to add vendors and sponsors. We are interested in adding additional farmers, local hand-made goods, prepared foods, beverages, florists, and nurseries as well as organic produce. If you have an interest in becoming a vendor, please register.
Now is your chance to be a part of a farmers market that contributes to our local economy. We welcome sponsors that are looking to invest in our community and help us expand the CCFM. For sponsorship details, please refer to our sponsorship card here.
Welcome to a new season! The 2017 season of the Capital City Famers Market is closely approaching. All vendors interested in joining our market family must register in advance. Once you have registered your application will be reviewed, and then you will receive an email notification informing you if you have been accepted or declined. Accepted applicants will receive an invoice for the market and permit fees, which must be paid in advance of start date (Vendor Fees below). Acceptance packages with invoices will be sent by email to all applicants in 2-3 business days. The market manager will review applications for new vendors monthly.
The vendor package (see below) includes a 10 X 10 canopy and a chair. Vendors are required to bring their own tables. Vendors will be highlighted in our weekly email blast (3000+ readers), social media posts (5100+ contacts), and on postcards, posters, and other materials. Vendor parking is provided alongside the park on Front Street.
In addition to the table fee, vendors must also pay the necessary city permit fees ($25 for non-food vendors / $125 for food vendors). TDA market manager will file for all city permits on your behalf. All market fees and permit fees are non-refundable.
