Abita Springs Art & Farmers Market Vendor Application


Please fill out an application and we will follow up with you as soon as we can!

Please fill out the following application completely. We ask that you allow 2 weeks for your application to be processed and for the Market Manager to contact you.

The primary goal of the Abita Springs Art & Farmers Market is to provide a convenient and enjoyable location for approved vendors to sell their products as efficiently as possible. To accomplish this goal, restrictions must be placed on the types of goods offered, and on the level of supply of certain goods. Not being accepted as a vendor is not necessarily a reflection of the applicant or the product offered; as the Abita Art & Farmers Market grows, and as the demand for goods increases, an application once rejected may be reviewed and accepted in the future.


The Abita Springs Art & Farmers Market is held every Sunday, 11-3, rain or shine. You can start setting up as early as 8:30 AM and all vendors MUST be set up by 10:45 AM. If you sell out of product while at market, then additional flyers/advertising should be created to explain your product & you must stay until the end of market.
