Where are your farmers from?
The farmers that attend the Midland Downtown Farmers Market are all from a 200 mile radius of Midland. On occasion we might have a visiting farmer who is outside that area (Gulf shrimp, etc) but ALL products are from TEXAS and our farmers risk losing the privilege of attending the market if they are caught bringing in produce that is not from Texas.
What happened to the vendor I bought from last year?
Our vendors are under no contract to return from year to year, some lose interest, some move on to other things (we lost a lot of farmers to the oil field,) and sometimes they move away. You can check our current list of vendors by clicking here to visit our vendor page.
I want to eat local, what is available?
Eating locally means that you eat what is available from farmers at the moment. To help you know what is being harvested and when, we have included this information from Go Texan so you know what you may be able to find when you visit the Midland Downtown Framers Market! Click here to see it!
How do I become a vendor?
All potential vendors must be approved by the MDFM Board of Directors. You can read all about the process by clicking here and going to our Join Us page. If you are a producer (farmer or rancher) you do not need to go through the approval process, you just need to alert the Midland Downtown Farmers Market Director that you will be attending by emailing them directly at email@example.com
I only have a few baskets of vegetables or fruit from my tree, can I come?
Yes indeed! We love Urban Farmers at the Midland Downtown Farmers Market! You can come out for one Saturday, or as many as you have produce for, just fill out the vendor application form for farmers which you can find here.
