Vendor Registration for Farmers' Market Network of Paducah (FMNP)

New vendors and returning vendors must register with the Paducah Parks office at 1400 H.C. Mathis Drive in Paducah.  If interested in the 2019 Paducah Homegrown Farmers’ Market, application packets are available in the Parks office.

To be considered for a booth, Paducah Parks and Recreation is inviting new vendors for the 2019 Paducah Homegrown Farmers’ Market to attend one of the two mandatory vendor information meetings on Monday, March 18 or Tuesday, March 19.  These meetings will be 5:30 p.m. at the Robert Cherry Civic Center.  At this meeting, information will be provided about the application process, hours of operation, and fees in addition to guidelines from the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.  If a potential vendor cannot make it to this meeting, contact the Special Events Coordinator to discuss products, guidelines, and the application process.  

Returning vendors and those who participated in the Holiday Market do not need to attend either of these meetings.  The applications along with the $75 fee are due Friday, March 15 at 5 p.m. for returning vendors.
