      New rules for vendors at Marquette Farmer's Market

      We're just a few months away from summer and that means the return of Marquette's Downtown Farmer's Market.

      During a meeting, the DDA discussed the new rules for vendors at the Farmer's Market.

      One of the biggest changes to the market is the raise in price for booth rental per vendor.

      Vendors are encouraged to accept alternative methods of payments from customers, but it won't be a requirement.

      The DDA also removed any language from the market policy that would regulate products or vendors from outside of the UP.

      The market manager assures vendors that space rental will still be affordable.

      "It is very affordable at $5 a day, maintaining that you can be a season vendor for the $125 this season or be a daily vendor, $10 a time up to eight times" says market manager, Myra Zyburt.

      According to the Michigan Farmer's Market Association, Marquette has one of the biggest markets in the state on the basis of weekly participation of vendors.
