FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ'S):
Q: Can I re-sell Produce at the Owasso Farmers' Market (OFM) that I have Purchased Elsewhere?
A: No. We are an OK Grown Market and could lose our Grant Money if we allow Vendors to sell produce Not Grown in Oklahoma. 70% of the produce you sell must be grown by you. 30% can be grown by another Oklahoma vendor but it has to be picked by you the Vendor. Your Garden or Farm may be Inspected at any time by a Member of the Board.
Q: Do I need a Special License to sell produce?
Q: What about Taxes?
A: Taxes are your responsibility as the vendor. The Owasso Farmers' Market does not collect taxes for vendors so when you price your goods you need to take tax into consideration. Most vendors sell their products for a set price including tax so it is easy to quote the customer an all inclusive price.
