Become A Vendor

Texas Farmers’ Markets at Lakeline and Mueller are organized under F2M Texas, a 501(c)4 non-profit corporation centered around the mission of hosting and educating Central Texas producers and consumers to grow a sustainable food system.

If you are interested in being a vendor at Texas Farmers’ Market, please read the following carefully before proceeding with your application. Due to our small staff size, we will not respond to emails or phone calls about questions that are already covered on this page. 

Texas Farmers’ Market at Mueller is currently at capacity, and we are not accepting new vendor applications for this market or its waitlist unless you are a fruit or vegetable agricultural producer. If and when there might be openings for new vendors at our Mueller location, this page will be updated. Please continue to check this webpage for updates as we will not respond to emails or phone calls about becoming a vendor at our Mueller location.

Applications are open for Texas Farmers’ Market at Lakeline. If you would like to be a TFM vendor we strongly encourage you to apply to our Lakeline market location. Vendors at the Lakeline market and agricultural producers will be given priority consideration for the Mueller market should more space become available in the future. 

Texas Farmers’ Markets are year round, rain or shine markets, weekly attendance is expected 40 of 50 weeks minimum. If you cannot commit to that attendance, please do not apply.

Application Review Process

Applications are reviewed on a monthly basis so please allow 4-6 weeks to hear a response from our team. Due to the small size of our team and the amount of inquiries we receive, we are not able to respond to all emails or messages about vendor applications. If you have applied and are wondering about the status of your application and it has been over a month since you submitted one, please email [email protected]; otherwise someone from our team will be in touch as soon as we are able. Phone calls about vendor applications will not be returned. 

Important Notes to Consider Before Applying to Texas Farmers’ Markets

      • Do not apply to either of our markets as a CBD, microgreen, pet food, or beef seller as these categories have long waitlists already for a very limited number of spots. We will indicate here if applications for these spots are ever open in the future.
      • Do not apply as a bakery unless your operation is at least 50% bread as the waiting list for sweet confections is very long for a limited number of spots.  Bread bakeries using local grains will be prioritized.
      • Priority consideration for all non-agricultural vendor categories will be given to those utilizing locally sourced ingredients. Please be sure to indicate where you are using locally sourced ingredients in your application.
      • If you are a Healthy Living vendor please reach out to [email protected] before you submit an application.
      • If you are a non-profit interested in having a one-time booth set up at market please reach out to [email protected] 
      • Are you a beginning Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) fruit or vegetable farmer? Fill out this form to be considered for TFM’s BIPOC farmer scholarship. All sustainable fruit and vegetable farmers that self-identify as BIPOC and are located within 150 miles of Austin are encouraged to apply.
