Success Stories: FROM MARKET VENDORS TO LOCAL BUSINESSES
What We Look for In Our Vendors
1. The type of items you sell
We are a farm- and food-first market. Since Jersey City requires us to keep a balance of farm to food to non-food vendors, we prioritize Farms over Prepared Food Vendors and Prepared Food Vendors over non-Food Vendors. During our normal season, we have very limited openings for non-food vendors. The openings that we do have are typically open to food-adjacent vendors (e.g. candles, body products) that are made with farm-sourced ingredients.
2. WHERE your business is located and/or how you source ingredients
First and foremost, we give priority to local vendors. For farms, we have a requirement that the farms need to be within 200 miles of Jersey City. For prepared food vendors, we prioritize selections based on location in the following order: The Heights, Jersey City, Hudson County or NJ. For non-farm vendors, we give priority to those who source their ingredients locally, as well.
3. diversity of products sold and price points
We believe that market customers generally benefit from having a choice. At the same time, our goal is to not overload the market with any one type of vendor. While no vendor is guaranteed exclusivity to a specific item, we do curate and limit the number of vendors offering the same or similar product lines. In parallel, we also work hard to ensure that our market is as affordable as possible for our patrons. We look for a diversity of price points from each vendor as well as across the vendors at our market.
4. proof of insurance and types of permits required by jersey city hhs
All food vendors must obtain relevant permits through the City of Jersey City Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Food vendors must either prepare their food in a licensed commercial kitchen or have a valid Cottage Food Operator permit from the state of NJ. Some farm vendors are required to provide more documentation depending on what their products. All vendors have to provide a Certificate of Insurance for at least $1M that names Farms in the Heights and the City of Jersey City as additionally insured.
