Vendors must abide by the make, bake, or grow BC Association of Farmers Markets (BCAFM) policies. Vendors must be the primary producer vending at their own tables.

All products for sale need to meet the laws, regulations, and rules as specified by federal, provincial, and municipal bodies, local health authorities, Oaklands Sunset Market, and the organic certifying body the vendor belongs to.
