Applications – James Bay Community Market

Interested in selling at the James Bay Community Market? Are you a non-profit with a message?
 
Due to the BCCDC (BC Centre for Disease Control) regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic the James Bay Community Market has had to change its operations. Social distancing results in fewer vendor spots and “event” activities such as live music and the Children’s tent cannot occur, nevertheless, the James Bay Community Market has been thriving since the first Saturday in May with food and produce vendors, and can now expand to include artisans and craft vendors.
 
Under the BCCDC guidelines we have space for some 40 vendors. Less than under normal circumstances, but enough to ensure a successful market experience.
 
Products sold at the market must be homemade, handmade, and homegrown and are juried to ensure that these guidelines are met.

Policy Manual

The rules and regulations for all vendors can be found in the James Bay Market Society Policy Manual. Whether you are a farmer, food producer, crafter, artisan, non-profit or service provider, please read the Policy Manual.

Application Forms

All vendors must become members of the James Bay Market Society to sell at the market. Those who regularly assist vendors must become associate members.

For new vendors, the cost of jurying is $10 and a full membership fee of $20 is due at the time of the jury session. The jury fee is non-refundable, and the membership fee is refundable only if the vendor is not accepted by the jury committee.

James Bay Community Market Musician & Performer Application forms

We are very sorry, but based on the BC CDC regulations we cannot have live music this summer.

Non-Profit Organizations and Community Groups:

Due to the social distancing regulations for 2020 there will be limited spaces available for non-profit or community groups this year. This space may be used to display and sell pertinent literature, sell memberships, give demonstrations, or sell raffle tickets only with an approved permit from the BC Gaming Commission. A non-profit organization or Community Group that wishes to sell products must apply as a regular vendor.
