Our Policies for Vendors on Marketspread

Vendor Profiles

Vendors profiles are not allowed to solicit the sale of products by directly linking other online stores.

Vendors may use their profile to promote attendance at markets when registered in that market via Marketspread.

Vendors may use their profile to promote any brick and mortar stores.

Vendor statement of Practices

Marketspread requires each farm grown product seller to declare their farming certifications and/or standard practices.

Marketspread promotes healthy food options but understands that certifications can be expensive, especially for small farms. Additionally, Marketspread understands that certifications have their limits and some producers may meet or exceed certification standards.

As such, Marketspread does not discriminate, we only ask that you make a publically viewable statement on your certifications and standard practices so buyers can make fully informed decisions. Multi-ingredient products (ie. baked goods) must contain a full list of ingredients.
