A Note to Interested Craft Vendors: The JCFM maintains a ratio of farm to craft vendors (60% to 40%) and we are currently at capacity. However, if you are interested in vending crafts at the market please email Lisa a completed craft application so the Board can review it and Lisa can put you on a waiting list.
All vendors, please note: In 2013, the North Carolina State Legislature made some new changes to the Tax Law that impact you as a Vendor:
1. Unless you are exclusively selling your own farm products (non-value added), you must obtain a “Sales and Use Tax” Certificate of Registration from the NC Department of Revenue (NCDOR). If you are selling only farm products you can fill out our Attestation Form attesting to the fact that you are selling your own farm products, or obtain your Agricultural Tax Exemption Number.
If you have to process your farm products, i.e. heat molasses or cut a vegetable, you are required to have an NCDOR Sales and Use Tax Certificate of Registration.
2. All vendors must conspicuously display their NCDOR Certification number or their Agricultural Tax Exemption Number at their booth (not required if you sign our Attestation Form because you are selling your own farm products).
