Become A Vendor

UPDATE NOVEMBER 27 2023: Applications are ON HOLD for BOTH Bell & Mueller markets, until further notice.* Please continue to check this webpage for updates as we are unable to respond to emails or phone calls about becoming a vendor at our markets.

*Please note: New vendors currently being onboarded had already begun the application process before applications closed.

Texas Farmers’ Markets at Bell 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. 

If you would like to be a TFM vendor we strongly encourage you to apply to our Bell market location. Vendors at the Bell 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 two months since you submitted one, please email; 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 beef, CBD, microgreen, pet food, candle, or coffee 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.
      • We are not currently taking applications for healthy living vendors. Please click here to view sponsorship opportunities at the market.
      • If you are a non-profit interested in having a one-time booth set up at market please reach out to 
      • Are you a beginning Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) fruit or vegetable farmer? Click here to learn more about TFM’s BIPOC farmer scholarship.

      Market Rules
