Updated Vendor Permit Requirements

rules-1339917_1280Do you have a vendor selling bedding plants at your market? Did you know that they are required to have a Nursery Growers License from the NYS Department of Agriculture & Markets? Making sure your vendors have all required permits is an important part of market management: That’s why we’ve put together a checklist for market managers.

We’ve recently updated our Market Mangers’ Checklist for Permits required for Farmers Market Sellers. This list is an excellent resource that will help you understand the various permits, licenses, and certificates that are required for sellers of commonly found products at your markets. While this checklist isn’t exhaustive, it serves as a general guideline to point you in the right direction. You’ll find a list of inspection agencies and contact information at the end of the checklist if you need more information or guidance. We hope this list will make it easier for you to keep up-to-date at your market. Please share this list with your vendors and staff as needed. We hope you’ll find this tool useful for your markets!
