Want to be a vendor at the Essex Farmers' Market?

Vendor price for each 10’ X 17’ space is only $220 for the 22-week season or $20 per week. Make sure to register for enough space for parking your vehicle(s), display, and sales. Duplication of products will be limited to ensure a successful market for all vendors. In addition, those who commit this year will have seniority in the future. Home-based businesses and crafters who need the Vendor Release & Indemnification Agreement can find it below.

While we feel strongly that all vendors should have insurance for their own protection, below is a Vendor Release & Indemnification Agreement, which must be signed by any home-based business or crafter that does not carry insurance

Weather Policy

The Essex Farmers’ Market is a rain or shine market, with a few exceptions.  We have made a commitment to our customers to be open the days and hours we have published, and our vendors have worked many long hours to be there for their customers. We hope that customers will reciprocate by coming prepared with their raincoats and umbrellas to shop and enjoy the market!

If thunderstorms, tornado warning/watch, flood warning/watch, or severe and consistent rain occurs prior to the opening of the market and there is reason to believe the threat will persist through most of the market hours, the market may be moved inside Eastpoint Mall, 7760 Eastpoint Mall, Baltimore, MD. From 23 Eastern Blvd., travel 1.7 miles west on Eastern Blvd. Enter the mall next to the Crafty Crab Restaurant. If we need to move the market, we will do our best to notify all vendors by email by 12:00 noon on that market Friday and will post the location change on this website's home page.

If severe weather conditions develop after the market has opened, customers, vendors and volunteers are expected to move to a safe place until the weather has passed.  In most cases, the safest place will be in their vehicles. Once the weather has passed, a determination will be made about resuming normal market operations for the remainder of the market day.

In all cases, if the market were to move or be delayed, a notification would be posted on the Chamber’s website ( and Facebook page (

The Essex Farmers' Market is a community revitalization initiative of the Eastern Baltimore County Task Force, a committee of the Chesapeake Gateway Chamber of Commerce. This initiative is made possible through a Baltimore County Commercial Revitalization Action Grant and an Operating Assistance Grant from the Maryland Department of Housing & Community Development.
