Applications open for The Pearl Market/Central Ohio Farmers Market Collaborative

May 22, 2020 12:00 am

First brought together by our work on the 2018 Farmers Market Promotion Program grant awarded to the Ohio Farmers Market Network, the Pearl Market along with the Bexley Farmers Market, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens Farmers Market and Upper Arlington Farmers Market are furthering our collaboration.

Allow us to introduce to you the Central Ohio Farmers Market Collaborative (COFMC). The Collaborative is a group of independently operated farmers markets in Central Ohio (currently the four of us), offering consistency and simplicity to farmers market vendors through the creation and adoption of the Farmers Market Vendor Handbook. The Farmers Market Vendor Handbook will:

Define the types of vendors admitted to our 4 farmers markets;
Provide a consistent set of rules and regulations between participating markets;
Simplify the application process for farmers markets vendors.
Pearl Market is excited to form the COFMC with the intention of saving you, the vendors, time and effort! By standardizing expectations of conduct and quality across participating markets, we hope to streamline and condense the process for your convenience and peace of mind. I’m very excited to make it even easier for vendors to succeed and customers to get the highest quality products. Thanks for joining in the journey!

In addition to establishing a common application and a set of guidelines, we have identified core values adopted by members of the collaborative including:

EFFICIENCY – Reducing administrative time spent in the application process;

CONSISTENCY – Easing the burden of knowing (and keeping straight) the rules and regulations of multiple markets;

QUALITY – Increasing the quality of vendors, products and markets themselves by adopting clear and common sense rules;

RESPONSIBILITY – “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating our new collaboration. (You might also feel some relief, which is a-okay with us!)

And one last thing: by applying to one or more markets in the Collaborative, you may also be considered and offered an opportunity at a market for which you did not apply
