DOWN TO BUSINESS.......
Nv requires all sellers at our market to charge sales tax. It allows people to sell at our market before they need a business license, so we are making some spaces open to the occasional sellers in our community. We will also be glad to walk you through the process of becoming a weekly seller
Saturdays we omit our food trucks and ask that our patrons who are hungry support the Farmers Market across the street. On Sundays food truck vendors will be welcome, so everybody benefits.
