Sunbury Farmers Market underway


If you haven’t visited Sunbury Square on a Saturday morning this year, you’re missing the most popular Farmer’s Market in Delaware County. But don’t worry, the 9 a.m. until 12 noon, rain or shine Sunbury/Big Walnut Area Chamber of Commerce Farmer’s Market runs every Saturday morning through October 17.

Walk-on vendors are welcome; vendor spaces cost $10 per week or $100 for the season. A Growers Pass, available only to “growers” for any eight weeks is $60.

Organizers emphasize that vendor spaces are assigned on a “First Come First Served” basis and pre-registration is required before set-up; pre-registration and set-up begins at 8 a.m.

Other than a list of regulations outlining liability issues, the Sunbury Farmer’s Market rule of thumb is simple: If you make it or grow it, you can sell it. Animal sales, food concessions, flea market items, used and antique furniture sales are prohibited.

No dock or warehouse produce is permitted. Allowed are homemade baked goods, cheeses, jams, salsa, honey, soap, lotions, etc. provided that processed foods have met all of the state and local regulations. Vendors set their own prices.

As an added bonus, Farm Market vendors are invited to join the Sunbury/Big Walnut Area Chamber of Commerce as a business member and receive 50 percent off the Season Pass. Contact the Chamber office for more information.
