Certified Farmer Program

Agricultural products (and all products at our market) are locally made and were produced within 100 miles of Denton.

Locally Made

As a producer-only market, all of our vendors must be the producer of their products. The farmer produces everything sold at their booth each Saturday. No resale allowed.

Producer-Only

Agricultural producers at our market always use sustainable practices. The DCM staff visited the farm and saw evidence of sustainable farming practices, including chemical-free and/or natural methods, as well as humane treatment of farm animals.

Sustainable

The Denton Community Market Certified Farmer Program has been supporting agricultural producers since 2018. Each farmer will have the program medallion posted at their booth.

Farmer’s Working Group

The Farmers Working Group meets three to four times per year to address the specific needs of farmers who are members of the Denton Community Market. The Working Group also provides recommendations on special farm products that are produced outside of the 100-mile radius for final approval by the Board of Directors.

 

Current Farmers Working Group Member Farms: Tree Folk, Jubilee Farm, iRelish, Reeve’s Bees.
