How to Become a Vendor

All the Information You Need to Apply

Old Pearland Farmers Market is committed to supporting the community. Our intent is to uphold strict standards on allowing only locally (within a 100-mile radius of Pearland) produced items and agricultural products, and disallowing resale distributors of any kind. Food trucks must be registered with the city and have a current license. Vendor groups include local growers, on-site, prepared food and cottage food vendors, pet product vendors, food trucks, community groups, and a unique mix of handmade art and craft vendors. This creates an authentic producer market that supports the community.

Food Truck Owners

FOOD TRUCKS

Please read before applying.

Food trucks must be registered with the City of Pearland and have a current license before applying. These mobile food units are inspected annually and are scored as ‘pass’ or ‘fail’ and receive a medallion which is applied to the rear of the truck, trailer, or unit. Food trucks who fail inspections will not be listed until they correct any concerns found by Code Enforcement or Fire Marshal staff. 

Apply with the city so that you can be an OPFM vendor in the future!
