At this time, access to electricity will NOT be provided by the Galloway Green Market.
Vendors must provide their own tents, tables, chairs. Tent weights of at least 20lbs are required
These requirements are intended to be open and non-restrictive for the purpose of obtaining adequate participation of interested vendors and uniformity in the submission of applications. The Green Market Committee is the sole judge concerning the merits of all applications submitted.
All potential vendors must submit an application. The deadline for full season vendors is June 3, 2022. Pop-up applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
The Galloway Green Market encourages “eco-friendly” and “reusable” rather than “disposable” materials in the following ways:
The market is “single-use plastic bag-free.”
No single-use plastic bags will be permitted at the market.
The only exception will be for fish/seafood and meat vendors that package their product on ice.
The market discourages the sale or distribution of plastic water bottles, plastic cups, and Styrofoam cups, plates, and take-out containers; plastic utensils (forks,knives, spoons) and plastic straws. Alternatives include: biodegradable, corn-based utensils, wooden popsicle sticks, recyclable paper utensils and paper and/or bamboo straws. Our collective pursuit of sustainable practices will encourage our customers to develop good habits like using reusable bags, coolers, canteens, and flatware.
This inherently reduces waste and minimizes our carbon footprint, giving small changes a chance to make a BIG difference!
