This year we added a "non-craft" vendor category to round our our market that included such vendors as LuLaRoe, Pampered Chef & Tastefully Simple. Would you like us to continue with this category or keep our focus on "locally grown, & handmade?" 

Yes, continue to add non-craft vendors.
No, I would only like to see craft vendors who hand-make their items.

Would you like to see ONLY farmers at the Valparaiso Market that grow at least 90% of their own produce? This means that the produce they bring to you is locally grown on their farm and is not brought in from other states. 
*This may exclude some of our past season's farmers as well as limit the variety of produce available at certain times of the season.
