Thank you for your interest in becoming a new vendor! 

The location of this Farmers’ Market is very important for the neighborhood and the City of Lakewood’s 40 West Arts District. It is truly historical ground for so many reasons. The neighborhood, the associations and City of Lakewood understand this and spent millions of dollars and tens of thousands of hours planning the revitalization of the 40 West Arts District that is home to our Farmers' Market.

ATTENDANCE

We vendors sometimes have conflicts in our schedules, we respectfully ask that all vendors attend all ten 40 West Farmers’ Markets for the 2016 season. We greatly appreciate this as the revenue generated from your sales not only helps you but the money from your Lot & Vendor Fees provides 40 West Farmers’ Market with additional advertising dollars to spend promoting the Market. And, as you know, more advertising means more customers. To achieve that goal, we have an incentive program for vendors with perfect attendance. 

At the end of the 2016 season, a vendor with perfect attendance will receive FREE LOT/APPLICATION FEE ENTRY into the 2017 40 West Farmers’ Market! And next year’s 40 West Farmers’ Market is 18 weeks long, and will have a lot higher lot fee!
