Notification for Cancelled Market Dates
A cancelled market day is a day that you choose to not attend and have given the market manager 48 hours of advanced notice.
If a vendor is not able to attend a Sunday market date, the vendor must inform the Market Manager by filling out the form before noon on the Friday prior to the Sunday market date.
If a vendor is not able to attend a Wednesday market date, the vendor must inform the Market Manager by filling out the form before noon on the Monday prior to the Wednesday market date.
This notification does not allow for a refund of fees. A vendor may not be allowed to return if they miss a market date without giving notice.
Missed Market Dates
A missed market day is when a vendor fails to give 48 hours of advanced notice that they will not be attending the market.
Vendor rates are based upon the number of market dates a vendor has scheduled and committed to. In consideration of this, and to allow for proper planning and execution of the Whistler Farmers Market, missed market dates are subject to fines.
A vendor is considered to have missed a market date if they do not attend a scheduled market date and have not notified the Market Manager by the required date.
The fines for missed market dates are as follows:
1st market date missed: no charge
2nd market date missed: $50 penalty
3rd market date missed: $70 penalty
All penalties must be paid prior to the next scheduled market date.
Late Fees and Missed Payments
Vendors must be in good financial standing to attend the market. Late payment or missed payment will result in the withdrawal of a vendor from the market schedule. Once the vendor is paid all debts in full, market days may be added. Please note, we cannot hold booth spots for vendors who are in bad financial standing.
