For Vendors

Applications for the 2014 market season are now open.  Please visit our application tab and thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor.  Current vendors, please see the information and resources below.

For Current Vendors – 2014 Additions:

Add-A-Product FOOD COURT Application

Add-a-Product CRAFT Application

Add-a-Product PROCESSED PRODUCT Application

2013 Adding Jams and Jellies to Your Product List

2013 RMPE, Inc. Vendor Rules

Important Considerations Before You Apply:

The Rural Mountain Producers Exchange is highly structured.

Every vendor is a member/producer.

Please note that Rural Mountain Producers Exchange only accepts vendors from Benton, Carroll, Madison and Washington counties.

Every member agrees to abide by Market rules and regulations. Special rules apply to arts and crafts and set requirements for originality, materials and production techniques.

The Market structure has been shaped by 30+ years of successful operation.

The Rural Mountain Producers Exchange is not liable for any vendor loss.

Each vendor must use a display capable of withstanding large crowds and extreme weather. No vendor display can endanger the public.

Each vendor is responsible for government regulations and/or taxes, if any, which apply to that vendor’s sales. Each application is reviewed.

The Art/Craft review process takes time, acceptance is not guaranteed, and each review decision is final.

Each Art/Craft application undergoes two evaluations: first, for quality and creativity, and second, for support of Market goals.

Please understand that RMPE will consider a maximum of one application per year per Artist/Crafter.

A review fee of $25.00 is required with submission on all Craft Applications.
