Are you thinking about becoming a vendor at the Ligonier Country Market?
Here are a few things you should know.
All items for sale must be grown, cooked, baked or made by the vendor. Plants must be grown from seed, plant cuttings, plugs, or vegetative propagation. Craft items must be constructed from materials such as textiles, wood, stone, minerals, plant or animal material. Prepared food items may be made from
ingredients such as sweeteners, grains, fruits, vegetables, meats, and dairy. Items bought elsewhere and then brought to the market for re-sale are not permitted because this is false representation.
All food vendors/producers must have completed the requirements for the PA Food Employee/Servsafe Certification Act, 3 PA.C.S.6501-6510 as required by law and be inspected by the PA Dept. of Agriculture. If you have any questions please contact Robert Delancey at 724-443-1585 ext. 259. Food vendors must submit a current copy of the PA Food Employee Certification which must include the address where the product(s) is prepared and packaged.
The Ligonier Country Market is a producers’ market. Value added is the physical effort by the vendor required to produce the merchandise sold at the Market. This concept is captured by the phrase, “Make it, Bake it, or Grow It.”
Craft vendors may not sell purchased raw materials. The original materials in a product must be significantly altered and enhanced by the artisan. All items must be of
original work and design.
Currently the Ligonier Country Market is actively seeking Farmers and Food Vendors. For an application with rules and regulations Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Include in this email a brief description of what it is you wish to sell at the Market. Craft vendors should attach a couple pictures of their products.
