How To Pre-Order and Pre-Pay
The list of vendors that accept pre-orders/pre-payment is below. It is organized like a grocery store: produce, meats/eggs, baked goods, prepared meal items. Like or similar vendors are scattered throughout the market. CHECK BACK OFTEN as the list will be updated frequently.
Contact vendors through their specified Pre-Order instructions. You will need to place a separate order with each vendor you wish to purchase items from.
SNAP/EBT customers can pay SAFM staff at pick-up time. (Instructions below.)
Create a list of each vendor (Business Name) and the items you have ordered from them to bring with you on pick-up day.
If you have not pre-paid, have exact money ready in baggies (your name and vendor name and dollar amount MUST be on baggie) for vendors accepting cash only or check.(NO CHANGE WILL BE MADE FROM PRE-ORDER LOT). Market runner will deliver payment to each vendor.
How To Pick Up Your Pre-Order
Bonus points: Please have your name clearly written (Last/First) and your phone number for SAFM market runners to view upon arrival.
Preorders customers can enter the fairgrounds via Gate 3 just west of the old main gate. Look for the pre-order sign at the west end of the parking area. Market runners will be looking for you.
A market runner will approach your car. (It may take a bit if the runners are helping other customers.)
Tell the runner your last name, first name, and telephone number (that you used to place your order), and the names of the vendors you ordered from. If you are a SNAP/EBT customer give the runner, (very carefully) your card and tell them your PIN so they can run your card at the market tent. They will bring you your card and receipt. The runners will then go collect your orders.
Direct runners as to where you’d like your groceries placed in your car. (Pop your trunk or have back window open).
We love you and we are all in this together. We appreciate your patience and kindness while shopping at the market, even if it is different, but safe!
