Only the following types of vendors are considered for our markets:

This vendor type includes ranchers, dairymen, and fishermen. This category also includes vendors who sell value-added products made from their own farms’ products.
FOOD PROCESSOR: Vendors who sell foods that they have personally prepared or processed.
