  1. Vendor cost will only be $30 per market.  If participating in both N and S market, the N market will be a discounted rate of $15 until March 31. 

  2. Vendors who wish to participate in our cutting-edge preordering system, with added marketing of their products, will pay a nominal fee for added sales capability.

What size is the vendor space?

A single Space is 10’ x 10’.

What if I need more space than 10x10?

The first 10x10 is included with Market fee, Additional 10x10 spaces may be added at a rate of $10 per addition.

Is equipment being provided, i.e. - tents & tables?

We do not provide equipment, but will help you set-up and break-down your booths. You may design your vendor space to suit your style, provided it meets fire safety standards, does not put other vendors, volunteers or customers at risk of trip & fall or other injuries. Have fun with it!

After I submit an application, is there anything else I need to do?

  1. Yes! If you are required to have a license or permit to sell your products in Prince George’s County, you must submit a copy of your permit to Forward Farmers Market. Farms and farm category vendors are required to have permits.

  2. There is a $30 market fee per market. You can submit payment online after approval of your application. A discount will be applied if you participate in both market areas.

  3. 2022 Vendors will pay the $20 market fee for their return to the market. 

Am I required to sign up for every market day?

  1. No, it is not required, but if vendors participate in each market day (10 days) we will provide a discounted rate of 50% for 4/5 North Market days. 

  2. You can partner with another vendor if you are limited in your available dates or inventory. That arrangement is between you and other vendors, Forward Farmers Market will not facilitate those arrangements. You will be required to notify Forward Farmers Market in advance to avoid confusion and potential additional space rental fees.

  3. We can provide volunteers for farmers who need help selling.

Are you being paid to start-up the Forward Farmers Market in Fort Washington?

No, the Forward Farmers Market is a project of the new non-profit group, Fort Washington Forward. Our Executive Officers and Board of Directors are all volunteers. We are just a group of residents of Fort Washington who banded together to help make our town a place to live, work and have fun right here in our community without having to brave traffic and go to DC or VA to shop, dine and find entertainment.

Can I get involved in Fort Washington Forward?


We are welcoming new volunteers all the time! Just go to to sign up as a volunteer! 

Why should you join us?

As we grow, we can create more opportunities to do our community good by planning events that connect our neighborhoods, guide development, and spotlight our business community! Let’s go Forward together!
