Join the Cooperative as a Consumer or Vendor Member

Membership Application

Use this form to apply for membership in the St. John's Farmers' Market Cooperative - we have both consumer members and vendor members; each group elects half of our Board of Directors. Membership shares cost $50 (refundable if you ever leave the Cooperative)

Note: This is not an application to sell products at the market; to apply as a vendor use the application here: 

Also note (for potential vendor members) that Membership in the St; John’s Farmers’ Market Co-operative does not guarantee table space at the Market, though it will be a consideration, among others in determining the vendor make-up. Also note that membership is only effective upon receipt of the payment for your share purchase and approval of your membership by the Cooperative’s Board of Directors (normally at the next meeting after your application arrives).
