The 2019 Farmers Market Application is here. Please read through everything thoroughly and remit your application with the $10 application fee. New vendors are only required to submit the application fee at this time. We will collect all other fees upon acceptance into the market. (Note that if you are a new vendor in the 2019 market you will need to be paid in full prior to June 7th, no exceptions!) Returning vendors are welcome to include all other applicable fees. Only one check is necessary, so if you are including your registration fees and business license tax, you can simply write one check for the total amount. Please read through everything carefully, fill it out thoroughly and if you have any questions contact Matt Lope, Farmers Market Manager at 970.262.3409.
Additionally, those vendors selling any type of consumable, whether it is prepackaged or prepared, will also have to fill out the Summit County Public Health Department Food Vendor Application. If you fit this category, please visit http://www.co.summit.co.us to obtain the application. Please submit this application to the Town as we are required to have it on file. It is your responsibility to adhere to the health department’s requirements. Any questions can be directed to them at 970.668.4070. Please be sure that if you are serving food you are familiar with the health departments regulations prior to the first market. Failure to do so may result in not being able to attend the market until you are in compliance.
Returning vendors are welcome to take advantage of the early bird rates as outlined. To receive the early bird rate your application and payment must be postmarked or received electronically no later than Monday, February 4, 2019.
The final deadline for applications to the Dillon Farmers Market will be Monday, March 4, 2019.
The Town of Dillon staff devotes a great many hours to operating a successful and fun Farmers Market and we rely on you to do your part. Knowing and abiding by our rules and expectations is the first ingredient in the recipe for success for you the vendor, the Town of Dillon, and most importantly our patrons.
If you have any questions, ask now! We want to ensure our vendors have all the information they need to be successful.
Thanks in advance! Let’s make it a great summer season!
Town of Dillon Farmers Market Selection Committee
2019 Dillon Farmers Market Selection Info
The Town of Dillon Farmers Market Selection Committee will begin its selection procession mid-March. At that point, we will begin to move forward with mapping, locations and new logistical rules and regulations for the 2019 season. We will share this information with all selected vendors as soon as we are able. Please be patient and understanding as we continue to adapt to our new location. It is through shared cooperation between the Town of Dillon and all our vendors that truly make the Dillon Farmers Market what it is, and for that we thank you!
HOURS, DATES, AND LOCATION
The 2019 market will run Fridays from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm from June 7, 2019, through September 13, 2019. The market will be located on the western portion of Lodgepole Street adjacent to the Dillon Reservoir.
The Farmers Market Selection Committee selects vendors annually. Participation in a previous year’s market does not guarantee inclusion in the 2019 Market. Selections will be based on both product mix, booth presentation and vendor attitude. The Market does not and will not offer exclusive rights to any one vendor to sell any one product. We believe that the competition will only motivate our vendors to bring their highest quality of products. Products that are Colorado-based will receive priority over vendors selling wares from other areas, but we will not exclude any vendors solely based on offering an out-of-state product. The final decision will rest with the selection committee and no explanation from the committee will be necessary. Only items that have been pre-approved will be allowed to be sold at your booth. If you do have a new product you would like to sell, you must present it to the Committee prior to selling it.
Please complete the two forms below no later than March 4, 2019 to be considered a vendor for the

Licenses and Taxes
Licenses: Vendors will need to complete and remit a Multiple Event License Application, Form 0589 (which can be downloaded from the Colorado Department of Revenue at http://www.taxcolorado.com.) Form DR0098, the Special Event Sales Tax Return, can also be found on this site. Town of Dillon Sales Tax must be reported on this return. Summit County and the Town of Dillon DO COLLECT taxes on home consumption foods. Each market vendor is responsible for the collection and payment of their Dillon and Summit County taxes. According to the Colorado Department of Revenue, "vendors or retailers that are selling goods, products, or some form of tangible personal property MUST separate the sales tax amount from the price of the item being sold; it cannot be absorbed into the amount of the selling price of the item." All taxes are paid to the State of Colorado using the DR0098 return. Custom made Colorado Special Event forms that combine the special event license application and sales tax return into a single form that automatically calculates sales tax, penalties, interest, vendor fees and license fees specific to the Dillon Farmers Market will be available at http://www.taxcolorado.com/.
