Become A Vendor

We hope you will join us this year at the Modesto Certified Farmers Market as we complete our transformation into the Central Valley’s premiere public market. It is always our goal to be an irreplaceable asset to the surrounding community, where we give local customers access to a wide array of fresh goods and products.

At MCFM we pride ourselves on having a diverse line-up of vendors and are always looking for new, local businesses to add to the mix. If you are a food maker, artisan, agriculturalist, or almost anything in-between, we want YOU!

Vendors we love to have at MCFM (including, but not limited to):

  • Certified Produce (Fruit, Vegetables, Specialty/unique product)
  • Certified Agricultural Products (Eggs, Meat, Honey)
  • Unique Arts (Handmade Clothing, Jewelry, Handcrafted Furniture)
  • Dairy Products (Cheese, Milk, Ice Cream)
  • Natural, Handmade Home and/or Body Products
  • Cold Foods (Packaged/jarred foods, such as jam or salsa, Bottled Drinks, Bakery Items, Cottage foods)
  • Hot Foods (Made and served at the market; Hot Drinks, Barbecued Food, Fried or Boiled Foods)

****Please note that applying to the market does not guarantee acceptance. Acceptance is determined by the Board of Directors and manager on a number of factors, including business qualification, space available, and current availability of same or similar products at the market.

  • Please be sure you have required documents prior to applying (see application for documents needed). Visit the Stanislaus County Business License & Permit webpage here


We at MCFM do not allow booths advertising a private business or selling services. Our market is for local small businesses that grow, cook, or make their own product to be able to market directly with the public.


We do not allow booths for businesses such as insurance companies, real estate agencies, personal trainers, etc. unless they are partners of the market in that year. We do not allow sales representative businesses OR resale businesses (such as Lu La Roe and Scentsy) under any circumstances.
