  • The Elmhurst Farmers Summer Market is open from June 5th  through October 30th excluding any holidays that fall on event days. The market is open from 7:00am until 1 :00pm.
  • Vendors must be set up no later than 7:00 am so that there is no interruption in service. Vendors will be turned away if they arrive after 6:30 am. Vendors will not be permitted to break down setup before 1:00 pm for the summer market.
  • Large trucks, those over 1.5 tons, must unload and exit the area no later than 7:00 am.
  • Vendors will be limited to the sale of plants, bakery, produce, consumable items, approved arts and crafts, and related items sold by Farmer’s Market vendors and holiday/seasonal items. The sale of other retail flea market items and antiques will not be permitted.

  • Vendors are responsible for the cleanup in the vicinity of their operation. No cardboard boxes, fruit, plants, trash, or displays are to be left behind.
  • Two consecutive no shows, without notification to management, will constitute an automatic termination of a vendor.
  • First offense will carry a written warning. A second offense will result in terminating a vendor.

  • After unloading, all vendor vehicles with a trailer are required to park in the side alley lot or other location as designated by the market manager. All other vendors vehicles must park in the designated parking assigned.
