FAQs

Barring any unforeseeable issues beyond our control, payouts to all vendors are the 3rd Friday of the month. These payouts are for all earnings obtained the previous month. For example, a payout in August is for July earnings.

You are encouraged to visit each LFAFM location you are selling at to keep an eye on your inventory levels, restock and spruce-up your display as you see fit. If you are unable to visit, simply submit a ticket using the form on this page and our team will follow-up with you regarding what is currently on-hand.

Yes. When you joined LFAFM and signed our vendor agreement, you agreed to a few non-compete clauses, the most important one being our 5-mile non-compete clause. In a nutshell, while actively selling at any of our locations, you are not permitted to sell your goods at any other establishment within 5 miles of any LFAFM location without written authorization from us. It sounds a lot worse than it is; we are happy to collaborate with you and find a happy-medium scenario if you find a location to sell at within that radius. Just reach out to us to iron out the details prior!

If you did not receive a deposit from us in any given month, it could be for a few reasons:

1. It might not yet be time for a payout (see “When do I get paid?” above)

2. We had to push the payout day for some logistical reason (which you would be notified about)

3. You did not have any sales in the month prior to the earnings payout.

If you have any questions, feel free to submit a ticket!

Absolutely! Just let us know if you’d like to expand and we can coordinate the details. Some restrictions apply.

We know delivering to all the stores you sell at can be a challenge at times. It takes time away from you that you could be using to grow your business in other ways and the gas money spent can add up quickly. So, to make stocking up all LFA Farmers Market locations easy, we offer our vendors a service we call Market-to-Market Bonis Translatio (latin for “transfer of goods”), or MMBT.
For only $9.99/month deducted from your earnings, MMBT provides you complete peace-of-mind. You just simply drop-off your products at one LFA Farmers Market location of your choice and we’ll make sure to transfer your stuff accordingly to all applicable markets you sell at; saving you time and gas money. You’re of course welcome to restock each store individually on your own and not participate in this service, but most vendors find it’s well worth it. If you are currently selling at multiple locations with us we will automatically enroll you in this service to make things extra convenient on your end. If you do not want to participate, please let us know.

If you have ideas on some new or different products to sell with us, simply submit a ticket. Let us know more about what it is you’re interested in selling and we’ll coordinate with you on whether or not we can start selling it in-store.

It depends. MDARD has some pretty strict regulations surrounding the sale of non-washed/sanitized eggs in a retail setting. Unless you have a licensed egg-washing facility, we are not permitted to sell your eggs at our locations.

It depends. If you produce this food item(s) in a licensed kitchen and you have a food license with MDARD for your business, then yes we can discuss selling it in our locations. If you simply made a food item(s) in your home kitchen (under Cottage Food law), we unfortunately cannot sell it per MDARD regulations.

Absolutely! We have lots of ways to help you grow your business outside of just selling in-store. Submit a ticket and we can setup a time to chat in more detail!
