Vendor Application Requirements & Process
Decisions about the market are made by the FMOB Committee. This group is made up of local vendors, district businesses, event professionals, and OBI staff. Comments from vendors, businesses and customers are reviewed at the end of every season, and the Committee’s decisions are based on the feedback to create a successful market.
The FMOB Committee uses the criteria set forth below, to evaluate each vendor in terms of acceptance and placement. In order to be a vendor at the market all criteria below must be met. If all criteria are met, the application is eligible for committee review. However, the committee reserves the right to refuse any product or application at any time for any reason. This includes vendors who may have been accepted in previous FMOB seasons. The FMOB committee and Market Manager reserve the right to alter rules at the discretion of event staff. Note: All vendors selling any kind of food or beverage product must adhere to Brown County Health Department Guidelines and regulations.
On Broadway Inc. must receive a completed online application March 3rd to be considered as a possible vendor for 2014. Applications received after March 1st will NOT BE ACCEPTED.
