If you are interested in selling fruit, vegetables, eggs, meat, fish, crafts or prepared food that you have grown, raised, caught, made, baked, or wild harvested yourself please fill out the Vendor application by clicking on “Vendor Applications” further below. Please review the 2020 Market Regulations to ensure that the market is an appropriate fit for your business. We give priority to vendors from within the boundaries of the Secwepemc Nation, see the map below for reference.
If you are wanting to sell any foods other than fresh, whole fruits and vegetables please review the Guidelines for the Sale of Foods at Temporary Food Markets. If you are selling prepared foods it is essential that you review the guidelines and establish whether your food is low-risk or high-risk. Some low-risk foods are permit exempt, but all high-risk foods will require a permit from the First Nations Health Authority. To apply for a permit, please fill out this form. You are required to provide proof that the foods you are selling are prepared in an approved facility or proof that they are considered low-risk. All paperwork must be submitted in order for your application to be considered complete. You will find more information in the 2020 Market Regulations.

The Indigenous communities cited in the Mission Statement are People living within the Thompson, Shuswap, Nicola, Fraser Canyon, Lillooet and Okanagan areas.
This includes persons, groups, or businesses living both on and off reserves as well as in urban or rural settings. The Boards' main objectives include the creation and strengthening Indigenous business development and formation of programming and support measures to prepare Indigenous people entering the labour market.
