What kind of vendors are you looking for?
We accept a variety of different types of vendors including non-food vendors. However, to be considered a farmer or grower, products must be grown or produced by the vendor. The market’s objective is to assist small entrepreneurs to break into the market, therefore vendors who already maintain retail operations in St. Louis will not be given priority. All persons wishing to sell in the OAON Farmers Market must fill out an application and be approved by OAON! Farmers Market management, prior to participation in the market. If there is a barrier to filling out the application, please contact the OAON! Farmers Market office and we will work with you.

Additionally, establishing a farmers market where there is food apartheid provides access to local and regional agriculture products that would otherwise be difficult to obtain and residents can use SNAP/EBT benefits.
