Thank you for your interest in becoming an integral part of the Ecology Center’s Berkeley Farmers’ Markets! Our markets are well-established and have limited spaces available to new vendors. That said, our team is always excited to hear about new farms and prepared food businesses. We keep applications on file and review them when openings occur.
All vendors must abide by our policies. Please read them thoroughly before applying.
In accordance with the Ecology Center and Ecology Center Farmers’ Markets mission, we are committed to supporting small-scale farmers who practice sustainable agriculture. All products sold at our farmers’ markets are grown in California, by the farms that sell them.Our markets are mostly organic and the Thursday market is 100% organic. Regardless of a farm’s organic certification status, all genetically modified varieties of crops and the use of the pesticides Methyl Bromide or Methyl Iodide are banned from our markets. California farmers with a valid Certified Producers Certificate are welcome to apply to our markets by filling out our Digital Farmer Application.
PROCESSED FOOD VENDORS
For nearly 30 years, the Ecology Center hosted an annual Winter Crafts Fair in the Civic Center Park adjacent to the Downtown Berkeley Farmers’ Market. This year, we are reimagining this beloved event as a series of pop-up vendors within the Berkeley Farmers’ Market for the month of December. We are recruiting makers interested in popping up at the market to sell locally made goods to our farmers market shoppers.
Locavore Wonderland will take place every week of December at the Tuesday, South Berkeley Farmers Market 2-6:30p, Thursday, North Berkeley Farmers Market 3pm – 7pm and the Saturday, Downtown Berkeley Farmers Market 10am – 3pm.
