Vendor Insurance Information - While vendor insurance is not required, it is strongly encouraged. We work with the Wisconsin Farmers Market Association to provide access to a low-cost insurance option.
Thanks to all of the data submitted by vendors and the visitor survey data collected by volunteers, we are able to generate annual economic impact data reports.
The economic impact of the 2017 market season is estimated to represent:
- $1.1 million in additional economic activity and 6 jobs in downtown.
- $2.3 million in additional economic activity and 15 jobs in the Fond du Lac Metropolitan area.
- Over the course of the season, the market generated $320,000 in total estimated sales to market vendors, a 26% increase over 2016!
Full details of the analysis will be available here soon.
We look forward to continuing data collection in 2018 and appreciate the participation of all of our vendors!
