4. Product and Sales Regulations
a. Participation in the Market requires the submission of an application and
selection by the Market Committee.
b. All products and produce sold by vendors must be locally produced or grown by
the individuals, families, groups or farms. Locally grown or produced is defined
as Kentucky or Southern Indiana (Bloomington and south). Products made from
locally grown produce and animals are allowed such as baked goods, cheese,
jams, jellies, soaps, oils, condiments etc.
c. In addition to agricultural, horticultural, and food items, non-edible products may
be sold at the Market such as: dried flowers, dried flower arrangements, vine
wreaths, gourds, body care products and beeswax candles. All materials must be
found, grown, foraged and/or produced by the vendor on local farm or land.
d. Consignment selling is permitted whereby a vendor (grower or producer)
consigns his product/produce to be sold by another vendor, provided
produce/products are grown/processed locally, as defined above. No items from
the Louisville Produce Terminal, produce auctions, or any other wholesale
outlets, are allowed.
