The Ventnor City Farmers Market welcomes local agricultural and food vendors to participate in its 2017 Farmers’ Market. Applications must be received by March 1, 2017 and acceptance notifications will be made by March 15, so we urge you to submit your request as early as possible.
Ventnor City is a mid-sized seashore community, approximately 2 miles long and 1.5 miles wide. Its year round population nears 10,500, which triples during the summer months. It’s located on Absecon Island nestled between Atlantic City to its north and the City of Margate to its south. Ventnor boasts a vibrant downtown area with a number of outstanding eating establishments and shops. It’s gorgeous beaches and renowned fishing pier and boardwalk draws thousands of visitors each summer.
The market will be held outside on the lot adjacent to Holy Trinity Parish along Atlantic and Newport Avenues. This prominent location provides substantial parking and maximizes visibility for those traveling Atlantic Avenue, our main thoroughfare, and for the scores of residents who pass by on the boardwalk.
To help support a green environment, we’ll urge shoppers to bring their own bags and encourage vendors to avoid using plastic bags.
The success of the Farmer’s Market hinges on our ability to attract a variety of high-quality vendors as well as huge numbers of satisfied shoppers therefore, vendor fees will be used primarily for marketing and promotions.
We are thrilled to be at the helm of such an exciting city event and hope you’ll join us!
