How quickly will you know if you have been accepted?
The Islamabad Farmers’ Market is in extremely high demand but has a limited amount of vendor tables. New vendor applications are reviewed monthly by a selection committee. Rejected vendors will be notified immediately. Vendor approval might require an assessment visit which will be charged at Rs1000/hour including transport time. Approved vendors will be notified the next table availability which will be awarded based on the vendor’s quality rating and application date.
