Woodstock Fair Farmer’s Corner Registration
The Woodstock Fair is inviting local farmers to take part in the 2023 Woodstock Fair. The Fair is creating a new “Farmer’s Corner” during the four days of the 162nd annual Fair from Sept. 1-4. The Fair is inviting four farm(er)s per day to take part in this new venture.
The Fair will provide a 10x10 tent and the space FREE of charge.
The farms must provide their own tables, displays and packaging (bags) for the items they sell.
The farms will be allowed to sell fruits, vegetables and flowers to Fairgoers. All produce for sale must be grown in Connecticut.
According to Northeast District Department of Health (NDDH) rules, farms cannot offer free samples, prepare or slice any of the products being offered for sale.If a farm does so, they will be asked to shut down or complete an application with NDDH and be subject to permitting fees.
If the farm has an NDDH permit and Department of Consumer Protection cottage food permit and meet those requirements, it is possible the farm may be able to sell additional items upon approval of the Fair and the NDDH.
All items for sale must be approved by the Woodstock Fair and farms will be strictly limited to those items.
All farms will also have to have a $1 million dollar liability insurance policy and will have to name the Woodstock Agricultural Society as an additional insured.(If a farm does not have a liability policy, one can easily be obtained by contacting one’s home insurer. However, there is likely to be a nominal charge which should be taken into consideration).
Farms will be asked to be able to stay and man their booths for the hours of the Fair (Noon-9p.m. Friday; 9a.m.–9p.m. Saturday & Sunday; 9a.m.–6p.m. Monday) on the day of sale and have adequate product to sell.
If interest in this new endeavor is lacking, the Woodstock Fair reserves the right to cancel the activity prior to the beginning of the Fair. Please fill out the information below.
(Space will be awarded on first-come, first-serve basis)
