How much does it cost to be a vendor and how do vendors apply?
Vendors can apply here. The cost for a 10×10 ft. Vendor space is $25/Market. The cost of a Value-Added Food Vendor (honey, jams, etc.) is $30/Market. The cost for Food Vendor/Trucks is $45/Market. Vendors should bring their own tables, chairs, and tents with weights.
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.

Why should I attend the OAON Farmers Market?
Community support for the Black Power Blueprint and One Africa! One Nation! Farmers Market is continuing to bring a sense of pride in the St. Louis African community and a vision for a prosperous future once again. 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. See more about our position on our website.
Can I use my credit card at the markets?
Many of our farmers and vendors accept credit cards, venmo or Cash App, but not all. Bringing cash to a farmers market is a good idea, plus it saves you or the farmer paying for transaction fees.
