Vendor Registration

Interested in vending at the Jackson County Farmers Market? Vendor contract and further information can be found below.

In 2013, the NC State Legislature made some new changes to the Tax Law that will 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.

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).

Please note that the vendor contracts and applications are updated for the  April 2017- May 2018 year as of March 21, 2017.
