Vendor Terms and Conditions

What happens if the weather is poor?

Staff will determine if the market will be canceled due to rain by monitoring the evening’s forecast on the AccuWeather website Thursday at noon. If the forecast predicts a 60% chance of rain during the hours of 5 pm through 9 pm, Market Night will be canceled for the evening. Should the weather defy the forecast, the Market Night staff will cancel the market if it is raining at 2 p.m. or later and/or if the streets are significantly wet at that time. When the market is canceled, a message will be put on the home page of the City’s Web site www.cityofredlands.org and on the Market Night office phone’s outgoing voicemail: (909) 798-7629.

What is a certified farmers’ market?

We have a large portion of our market dedicated to farmers. This area is located between 6th and 7th Streets and is indicated with certified farmers’ market signs. Each of these farmers grows every item he or she sells.

According to the California Federation of Certified Farmers’ Markets:

California Certified Farmers’ Markets are the “Real Thing,” places where the farmers sell their crops directly to the public.

Before a farmer can sell at a “Certified” Farmers Market, the government checks to makes sure that the farmer grows the produce that the farmer is selling

Elimination of packing, shipping, and wholesale costs means both the farmer and consumer can save money.

Safe, nutritious, vine and tree-ripened fruit and vegetables that are California-Grown and Certified by the State of California.
