Applicant Eligibility

Producer-Only Requirement

All businesses selling at FRESHFARM Markets must exclusively sell products that they have grown or produced. Absolutely NO resales or third-party sales are allowed.

Local Requirement

FRESHFARM works to support local agriculture and improve the quality of life in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia. P​articipation in the farmers markets is only for regional farmers who sell what they grow, raise or produce on their farm, and for local producers who make products featuring agricultural ingredients sourced from Mid-Atlantic farms, preferably within a 200-mile radius of Washington, DC.

FRESHFARM gives strong preference to producers and concessionaires who maximize the use of local ingredients (produce, meat, dairy, eggs, grains, etc.) in the value-added foods sold at market.

We do not discriminate and will take affirmative action measures to prevent discrimination against any vendor or applicant on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, creed, disability, or veteran status.
