Online Marketplace Vendor Agreement
Please read and complete the application for participation in the Food for Thought Online Marketplace. All vendors must complete an application form that is filled out and submitted in its entirety before your application will be considered. Visit www.wyfftp.org for more information.
**This is an application, so approval must come from Wyoming Food for Thought Project prior to vendor participation in the Online Marketplace.**
Please understand that some vendors and/or products may not be approved, as we are working to create a well-rounded and well-balanced market. The market expressly prohibits any and all discrimination at any level of the market based on race, creed, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical, disability, veteran status or political service or affiliation.
Upon reviewing your application, vendors will receive a follow-up email from the market managers. If accepted, a payment link will be included to participate in the Online Marketplace. Payment must be processed prior to participation.
Wyoming Food for Thought Project
The Online Marketplace is a program of Wyoming Food for Thought Project, a local non-profit organization dedicated to food sovereignty and food justice. We primarily provide food insecure children throughout Natrona County with weekend food bags year-round. We also tend to over 225 raised garden beds, manage an Urban Farm in north Casper, and more. To learn more about Food for Thought or to schedule a tour, visit our website at www.wyfftp.org or give us a call at 307.337.1703.
Vendors who sell handmade, homemade and homegrown items are encouraged to participate. At least 80% of the products you sell must be made or produced by you - wholesalers who do not meet this requirement will not be approved as a vendor at the Food for Thought Markets.
To participate in the Online Marketplace, vendors will pay $5 per week until sales exceed $100, at which time we will transfer to 10% of total sales each week. Once approved as a vendor, we will send you a confirmation email with a link to make an online payment.
How It Works
The Online Marketplace is an online farmers' market platform to help connect consumers with producers during this time of social distancing.
Online Marketplace pre-order will take place every week from 4pm Friday thru 5pm Wednesday, with Windy City Delivery to delivery orders to shoppers on Friday afternoons.
Vendors will coordinate with Gabi via email at email@example.com to get their products added/updated on the Online Marketplace before 3pm on Friday's. Vendors will need to provide the following items:
- Description of item(s)
- Picture of product(s)
- Different sizes/types/flavors etc.
- Pricing for all product(s)
- Inventory for all product(s)
Vendors will receive daily email updates of product orders, with a final email Wednesday evening of all items needed for orders.
Vendors will then drop off all pre-ordered products at the Food for Thought Program Center at 900 Saint John St. between 9am-11:30am on Friday's.
Vendor reimbursement will occur after product is dropped off via PayPal/check.
It is the responsibility of the vendor to ensure that pricing, photos, descriptions and inventory are accurate for their products on the Online Marketplace BEFORE noon on Friday's. There are no guarantees that changes will be made to products after the Online Marketplace opens on Friday after 4pm.
If the Market Manager doesn't hear from vendors before noon on Friday's regarding updates/changes to their products, then the Market Manager will assume that products are as they were last week.
That means that inaccurate pricing, inventory etc. found on pre-orders will come at a loss to vendors.
If vendors do not fulfill and deliver pre-order items to Market Manager by Friday at 11:30am, then returns will be made to customers on those items and vendors will not be paid for the sale of those items.
