The City of Fife is pleased to announce the fifth year of the Fife Farmers Market. The purpose of the Market is to create a sense of community and celebrate our unique community assets, while providing healthy options to our citizens. The City of Fife is located right off of the I-5 corridor, making it a convenient stop to purchase your local fresh veggies, fruit and berries, flowers, eggs, milk, baked goods, handcrafted items and more. The Fife Farmers Market will be held at Dacca Park, to allow kids to play, while parents peruse the market. We are planning a great line up of Market Day specials and live entertainment. Be sure to visit our Facebook page often for updates. The Fife Farmers Market will begin on Friday, June 16th and continue every Friday, until August 25th.

Fife has a unique population of not only 9,800 citizens, but a daytime workforce of over 25,000. Fife has a huge need and demand for fresh produce and other items. We believe this Farmers Market will be the answer. Vendors are selected by the Market Management. We are prioritizing local farmers, locally sourced foods and goods, as well as quality, originality, locality, seasonal versus daily, and compatibility with the existing regional market mix. Local agricultural products (think vegetables, fruit, eggs, jams, honey) are given priority over all other vendor categories.
The Farmers Market strives for the following composition of vendors:
- Fresh Farm Products 50%
- Processed goods, prepared foods and processed foods 20%
- Handcrafted items 20%
- Other 10%
Vendor Space Information
Vendors pay a $15 application fee and a commission based on their vendor type. See the Rules and Guidelines below for more information.
