Farmers Market Coming Soon- Accepting Vendor Applications

Who Qualifies?  The Posen Farmers Market welcomes vendors who grow, produce or process the items they have for sale.  Items for sale must be personally consumable–either ingested or applied.  This includes food, beverages, skin products (e.g. soaps and creams) and includes pottery, crafts, clothing items or similar non-consumables.  Plants, flowers, compost and other grown or derived products associated with growing may also be sold.

Acceptance: PFM is not required to accept the application of a vendor even if he or she qualifies.  Nor is PFM required to justify its decision, which is based on a variety of factors, including space available, balance of vendors, range of products and experience of the vendor. Completed applications must be received at the Village Hall, Attn: Posen Beautification, 2440 W. Walter Zimny Drive, Posen, Illinois 60469, by April 1, 2020.

Our Market and Community: PFM provides a venue for farmers and other vendors to bring fresh, nutritious, high-quality food grown or produced in the region.  Posen is an underserved and socially progressive town with more than 1,800 households within easy walking distance of the market.  PFM creates a friendly central setting where vendors develop strong relationships with residents who desire more local, sustainably produced foods.

Operations: We will operate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Second Saturday —June 13th, July 11th, August 8th, and September 12th.

Location: Posen American Legion- 2590 W. Walter Zimny Drive, Posen, Illinois 60469
