Co-Op Booth

Community Co-op Booth Guidelines 2024

The goals of the Wallowa County Farmers’ Market (WCFM) Community Co-op Booth are to:

  • Increase options for market customers.
  • Provide local non-professional growers a means of sharing their bounty with the community, and generating extra income.
  • Provide aspiring professional growers a means of testing the market before committing to their own booth.

Reservations / Attendant

  • To guarantee a spot at the booth, vendors must contact market manager by Friday at 5 p.m. with approximately what and how much they are bringing, and whether they are willing to serve as booth attendant. Contact the manager at or 541-838-0795, 541-786-8999
  • Vendors are allowed to bring products day-of-market without a reservation, but they run the risk of there not being space for them. Only vendors who have reserved space by Friday are guaranteed to sell at the booth.
  • Vendors pay WCFM 20% commission of sales at the end of the market day; this commission is waived if a vendor volunteers to serve as the booth attendant. This must be arranged with and approved by the market manager; there is one attendant per market.
  • The volunteer booth attendant promotes all products available, not just theirs. There is a separate set of guidelines for the attendant; please request them in advance if you are interested in serving in this capacity.
  • Market manager decides how many vendors can fit in the booth each week based on the amount of product they are bringing. It may be necessary to implement a waiting list, and/or encourage larger vendors to reserve their own booth.

What May Be Sold

  • The Community Co-op Booth is only for produce, eggs or processed foods grown/processed by the vendor, or for herbs, plant starts, or cut flowers.
  • Oregon law requires processed food to be sold to the customer directly by its producer. Therefore, if a vendor wants to sell processed food, they will need to serve as the booth vendor that week. And, therefore, only one vendor of processed food is allowed per week.
  • Thanks to OFMA, the co-op booth is now equipped with a scale; food items can be individually priced and sold by weight, or by bag or bundle, and priced accordingly. 
  • The co-op booth does not handle coins smaller than quarters. The booth attendant will round up all transactions to the nearest 25 cents to adjust for this. Vendors will be paid the exact value of the food that sells, according to price and weight.
  • Vendors are responsible for bringing their own display baskets, ice, etc. Please provide a nameplate or other small sign identifying the grower (name and town) with the product(s) by 8:30 am on market day.
