UPDATE – September 14th: (I sent this email out to our vendors a few weeks ago… Trying to keep everyone updated on our market! (-:)

This November will market the end of our 3rd year as the Sierra Vista Community Market. Our 1st year we were in a location where it was very hard to find us (behind Target, Sierra Vista United Church of Christ). We struggled every day. When we moved to Veterans’ Memorial Park in November of 2013 we were extremely excited! and 2014 ended up being a pretty good year for us. This year we seemed to have slowed down a bit. I attribute this slow down to losing a couple of our food vendors (i.e. expanding so no time to do markets, not having enough people to man a booth) as well as economics.

And know that we’re not the only market that’s been slow lately. I checked with a number of different markets in the area and all of them are experiencing less traffic than usual lately. Even those in Tucson.

So… I’ve been doing my best to place a large focus on food once again, and people are responding, so good news! I’m starting to get regular customers coming back to buy the produce I’ve been picking up at the farmers market on Thursdays. And we’re still seeing lots of new faces, also good news.

We’re also getting more people asking about how to be a vendor with us, including a healthy dog treats vendor, so excited!

A Few Things:

  • Think of the market like a mall. I’m doing my best to bring in the general public but you have to market to bring in your customer base. I do my best to hold a lot of events and I also do a lot of promotions in order to bring in a variety of people, but I can’t emphasize enough on how important is for you to create a way to market to your customer demographic.
  • Because we hold the market every week, people won’t come back every week unless they have a reason to. Give them one! (-:
  • A reminder that we’ll be moving to the grassy area sometime in November (through March/April), where the Farmers Market sets up.
  • Invest in a banner! You can put it on Fry Blvd, where there’s constant traffic…
  • Gary of San Pedro River Valley Salsa had his second and third best selling day at our market, and he’s been selling for 10 years. There’s many more examples…

Great Link!:

There’s a lot of great info in this training manual put out by Baja AZ. Hope it helps!


Saturday Market vs. Thursday Market
Sometimes people ask why the Thursday Farmers Market is busier than our Saturday Community Market. It’s because the Farmers Market has been in business for 10 years now, and has created quite the loyal following over the years. We’ve only been in business for 2 1/2 years now, so we hope to also gain a large following so we can one day be as busy as the Farmers Market is now.


Our Current Veterans’ Park Location
A quick update about our location: Although we’re right in the middle of Veterans’ Memorial Park so it’s truly easy to find us, we’ll be setting up where the Farmers Market sets up on Thursdays from October or November through March or April. This will make as even more visible from Fry Blvd, so hoping to bring in new business. Yay!


Tupperware & Avon!
The Sierra Vista Community Market will now be allowing those who are selling Tupperware and Avon to attend the market. We will also be taking other MLM ventures into consideration on a case-by-case basis. Because we place a large focus on homemade and handmade items we didn’t allow these types of businesses in, but because we’re really looking to accommodate a wide variety of options for the Sierra Vista community as well as surrounding communities, we decided to loosen our restrictions a bit.

If you’re interested in vending with us and have a MLM business, or any other type of business that you think would be an asset to the community, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Thanks!

  3. Janet Said,

    How/where do I find your online auction of clothing?

  4. Ldianne4 Said,

    updating now…

  5. Vicki Said,

    Hi, Laura. Sorry I didn’t get this sent before, but school has kept me busy. I’d like to bring some of my “garden goodies” to sell this Saturday. I’ll have Jerusalem Artichoke, Swiss Chard, and probably some Rosemary, Marjoram, and Parsley, as well.

    Thanks, Vicki

  6. Ldianne4 Said,

    Great! Under the Community Booth, right? Did you want a half table for $5 or a whole table for $10. (-:

  7. Vicki Said,

    Yes, under the Community booth. I think a half table will be enough for this first time. Thanks, and see you there!

  8. John Said,

    Hi Laura,

    We would love to became a vendor selling Italian Ice at the Community Market.

    Thank you,

  9. Ldianne4 Said,

    Hi John,

    Sounds great! Do you have a website/Facebook page or something that I can see? How long have you been selling Italian Ice? When would you be interested in starting?

    Laura (-:

  10. Kathie Sandoval Said,

    I make great fudge, and have a little trailer, or can set up a shelter. Used to have the shop at the mall. Can you tell me how much it costs? Thanks. K

  11. Ldianne4 Said,

    If you take a look at our How to be a Vendor page you’ll find all the information you need to know about being a vendor with us. (-:

  12. Christina Hidecker Said,

    I sell that crazy wrap thing that tightens, firms and tones in just 45 minutes. I would love to be a vendor at the community market if possible as an It Works distributor.

  13. Ldianne4 Said,

    Is it handmade? Did you read our ‘How to be a Vendor’ page? Do you have any more info/pics you could send me? (-:

  14. Dan Richter Said,

    I would like to have a booth this Sat. the 4th for landscape plants, house plants, apricot trees, and featuring Gynura procumbens. At Ace parking lot. Please confirm

  15. Ldianne4 Said,

    Hi! Although we would love for you to join us at ACE, I think it would be a conflict of interest as they also sell plants, etc. If you would like to join us when we’re back in Veterans’ Memorial Park on October 18th, let me know and I can add you in… Thanks for your interest! (-:

  16. Dan Richter Said,

    I woke this morning thinking the same thing regarding the plants so will plan , why not the 11TH?

  17. Ldianne4 Said,

    We’ll be back in Veteran’s Memorial Park on the 18th

  18. Thomas Said,

    My 94 yr. old & 89 yr. old mom & mom in law were wondering if it would be possible to place the vendors on the paved area where the food carts are now , and the food carts along the edge of the grass, so that those who are balance challenged, wheel chair bound , or otherwise mobility challenged might have the same opportunity to shop as everyone else…it could mean more revenue for all involved!! Thanks for your consideration.

  19. Ldianne4 Said,

    Hi! Thank you so much for letting us know about your challenges. I’m currently looking into other options for your particular type of situation, so I will be providing an update once I find out something, and hopefully soon! (-:

  20. Jaqueline Said,

    Hi Laura,

    I was wondering if you have space for craft vendors. I can see that there are quite a few. My items are handmade and some are upcycled from other materials. Please check out my website and let me know.


  21. Ldianne4 Said,


    Your website looks great! We would love to have you join us at the Sierra Vista Community Market. Because we already have 2 bath salts/body scrubs people, you could only sell these types of products when one of them aren’t going to be there. Feel free to email me directly with additional questions, and be sure to look at the Welcome Packet, which contains everything you need to know about vending with us. I’ll go ahead and add you to our vendor invite email now, which I’m getting ready to send out in a few…

    Thanks for your interest!!

  22. Darla St.Pierre Said,

    Hello, my name is Darla St.Pierre. I am very interested in becoming a vendor at the market. I have enclosed a couple of photos of our work. My sister is disable and we make these beautiful flowers to brighten the lives of others and put a smile of faces. Of course it is also a income for my sister who cannot work. We sale these lovely flowers for $3.00 each. We are able to scent them with a floral scent only if requested. We do not as a rule scent our flowers due to people who may have allergies. We hand make each flower in a variety of colors..each flower is unique in its own way. These flowers are made from colored paper and will never die. They come on a wood stem that is 12 inches long and wrapped in floral wrap. Customers can purchase 1/2 dozen flower arrangement, their pick of colors and flowers with a crystal clear vase for $18.99. We will arrange and wrap with pretty ribbons. Ready for gift giving.

    Please consider us for your Market
    I can be reached at 520-220-6832

    I would love to email you some pics…if I could get your email address or phone number.
    I already have a tax number and have a permit from the City of Sierra Vista. Is it possible that I could get a place for this Saturday Feb.14 ?


  23. Krist-Anah Watkins Said,

    I am an AdvoCare Independent distributor. If, at all possible I would love to join.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  24. Ldianne4 Said,

    Sure! If you could email me to let me know when you’d like to start, that would be great! Laura (-:
