Through our Seedlings program, there is no charge to be a

vendor at our market your first time.

The Seedlings program gives potential vendors the chance to set-up and sell their products at the Shawano Farmers Market for one Saturday free of charge. We hope they will enjoy the fun, selling atmosphere as much as our veteran vendors and decide to become a vendor.

The Shawano Farmers Market nurtures our community’s health, and social and economic growth by providing a vibrant marketplace for the local food producers. The Shawano Farmers Market also gives local vendors and farmers a place to come together and celebrate good, hard, honest work - the work done by the hands of our neighbors.
