We hereby apply for membership in Farmers' Markets Ontario® under the following class of membership.
(select one below)
Farmers' Market "Farmers' Market" is a seasonal, multi-vendor, community-driven (not private) organization selling agricultural, food, art and craft products including home-grown produce, home-made crafts and value-added products where the MAJORITY OF vendors are primary producers (including preserves, baked goods, meat, fish, dairy products, etc.) Each member Farmers' Market has a vote at a meeting of the General Membership.

Public Market "Public Market" is usually a municipally owned/operated (not private) year-round operation consisting of unique, specialty food and crafts merchants who sell some products they produce or grow themselves but who often sell items they buy from local producers or wholesalers. Public Markets usually include local producers during the growing season. Each member Public Market has a vote at a meeting of the General Membership.

Neighbourhood Farmers'/Community Partnership Market "Neighbourhood Farmers'/Community Partnership Market" is a community driven (not private) multi-vendor seasonal or year-round market featuring primary producers and other vendors suited to the interests/needs of a particular neighbourhood or community (e.g. local prepared food makers, fair-trade and organic product vendors). Vendors may sell items they have not produced to enhance selection and keep the market viable year-round, thereby, increasing customer loyalty and sales of local storage crops, meats etc., however, farmers', producers' and growers' own products take priority. Each Neighbourhood Farmers'/Community Partnership Market has a vote at a meeting of the General Membership.
