Young Vendors Program at Farmers’ Market

The Southwest Edmonton Farmers’ Market has a wonderful, free-of-charge opportunity for youths aged 13 to 17!

The SWEFM is hosting young entrepreneurs at the market this year (runs every Wednesday from 4:00 to 7:30 PM, from May 16th to October 3rd). The market is located at the Terwillegar Community Recreation Center (in Parking Lot E). Young people are encouraged to highlight and sell the products that they have made. If you are, or know, a young person who would like to participate, e-mail swefm.manager@gmail.com. Please include your name, your age, and a description of your product(s), as well as how many dates you’d be interested in.

A few details:
• All Young Vendors must sign & abide by the Terms & Conditions of the market (these will be supplied upon application; they cover things such as safety, weather policies, general rules of our grounds, etc.). In addition, a waiver will need to be signed by your guardian.
• SWEFM will provide the market stall & tent, a table, and two chairs for your time at the market. You will be able to set up your display however you like, so long as you follow the SWEFM rules & regulations! You will also be promoted on the SWEFM social media pages, and included on the weekly “Fresh Sheet”.
• All products must be made-in-Alberta by the youth(s) accepted to the program. You can apply with a friend or as a group.
• All Young Vendors selling food must complete the Alberta Health Services Home Study Course (this is available online and in print, is free, and takes a few hours to complete). It covers food safety, labeling, etc.
