qualifying vendors and products
Products and services sold at the Latah Farmers Market must be grown, sourced, produced, crafted, foraged, made, or raised locally within Latah County by Latah County residents. Products and services produced in the neighboring counties of Nez Perce County, ID, Benewah County, ID, Clearwater County, ID or Whitman County, WA may apply to participate in the Farmers Market, but acceptance is not guaranteed. Booth reservation priority will be given to Latah County residents with agricultural or consumable products.
The Latah Farmers Market recognizes the need for increased access to local agricultural, perishable, and food products during the local growing season, and has established product categories to help guide selection of vendor types in an effort to meet this need.
VENDOR TYPES INCLUDE:
VENDOR TYPES INCLUDE:
- Agricultural Vendors: Any vendor whose products include 51% or more agricultural products*

Each individual booth footprint is 10' x 10'. Vendors may obtain a second adjacent booth space if desired to make a double 10' x 20' booth space. Vendors are responsible for providing their own booth supplies, including an optional canopy, no larger than 10'x10', as well as any tables, chairs and displays required for their booth. For vendors who prefer not to bring their own canopy, a limited number of booth spaces are available on the covered platform outside the Depot.
Vendor fees are based on a voucher system. The more market vouchers you purchase at a time, the lower the cost per market. Vendors are welcome to purchase additional vouchers at any point in the season. No refunds will be given for any unused market vouchers.
Advance reservation is required. Vendors should notify Market Management of their intent to participate in the weekly market by the Monday prior to that week's market. Booth spaces will be assigned upon arrival at the market. Come early for best selection. Market management will make every effort to accommodate special location requests and consistent placement for vendors who attend the market regularly, but the Market Manager has final authority for booth assignments. Walk on vendors are welcome, but must arrive no later than 3:00 PM to qualify for participation, and participation is subject to space and availability.
Here's how to sign up to be a vendor.
There is no charge for 10' x 10' booths held by qualifying non-profits. Non-profit booths require advance reservation and will be allowed on a market-by-market basis as space and availability permit. Non-profits that sell merchandise at the Market are still responsible for obtaining a Idaho State Tax Commission Seller's Permit
