Interested in becoming a vendor at the Pontotoc Farmers Market?

At the Pontotoc Farmers Market, our aim is to create a local food infrastructure for long-term sustainability and meaningful community impact.  Every vendor within our market community is thoughtfully chosen as we aim to select a diverse group of vendors to provide our customers with access to high quality locally produced food and handmade goods.

For vendors who commit to a full season (market season or particular growing season), the Pontotoc Farmers Market will, among other things:

  • Promote your business and products weekly on our social media platforms.

  • Promote your products through our weekly newsletter and in print, radio and tv ads.

  • Provide the infrastructure to accept SNAP/EBT, USDA Senior Vouchers, WIC vouchers and grant voucher programs at no cost, expanding your customer base and income.

  • Provide an online marketplace, driving midweek and off-season sales.

If you’re interested in becoming a vendor, please review our Vendor Guidelines, then complete the online Vendor Application.  Want to talk in person?  Please call the market manager at 662-760-6703.
