PREPARERS OF FRESH FOODS
The main focus of Sonoma’s Tuesday Night Market is making fresh, healthy, locally-grown produce from small-scale farmers available to our community. In evaluating packaged food vendor applications to STNM, we consider the following criteria: Fresh, in-season, locally-sourced ingredients, purchased from STNM farmer vendors whenever possible; compostable, polyethylene-free packaging and utensils; small-scale, locally-based businesses; high-quality, affordable options for purchase; compliance with all applicable local, county and state ordinances and permitting.
Vendor stall fees are tiered, based on your business location:
Packaged Food Vendors: Within Sonoma city limits $45 per 10’x10’ stall; within Sonoma Valley (south of Oakmont, north of Highway 37) $55; outside of Sonoma Valley but within Sonoma County $65; outside of Sonoma County $75.
Prepared Food Vendors: Within Sonoma city limits $65 minimum per 10’x10’ stall (or 10% of gross sales, if greater); within Sonoma Valley (south of Oakmont, north of Highway 37) $75 minimum; outside of Sonoma Valley but within Sonoma County $85 minimum; outside of Sonoma County $95 minimum. (Please note that all Prepared Food Vendors will be required to provide verifiable sales reports from a cash register or point-of-sale system, and due to fire regulations most Prepared Food Vendors will be required to rent at least 1.5 10'x10' stalls.)
These stall fees were approved by Sonoma City Council at their February 3rd meeting.
