One of the issues we’ve run into is that we cannot direct buskers and community groups to a different application than product vendors. So unfortunately, buskers and community groups have to go through the same application process as product vendors. Here are some tips to help you move through it more easily:

First you will have to fill out a profile. Here the only information we need from you is the name of your organization, your contact person and their contact information (email address is mandatory), and a brief description of what you would like to do at the market (ie) hand out information, sell tickets etc. You can write this information wherever it makes sense to you in this section. Simply write N/A in any mandatory fields you do not use.

You are certainly welcome to fill out the public section, including your social media profiles and/or uploading a picture or a logo, however this again, is not mandatory.

Next you will have to fill out the Products page. Here simply scroll through until you see “Community Resources” or “Non Profit Materials” (those are probably the best fit – either one will do.) Click the months you would be available. Don’t worry about getting the dates correct here, this is not the place where you will be requesting specific dates.

Next you will be directed to a list of markets you would like to apply to. Choose the Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market. This part of the application is self explanatory, however if you have any questions at all, please contact the market manager: manager@afma.ca

Thank you for your patience as we transition to this new system. You only have to fill out the profile and products section once (unless you are changing something significant), so if you are returning next year or you are attending or planning on attending other markets that use this software (like Guelph), you won’t have to fill out this portion more than once.
