EARTH'S BOUNTY CODE OF OPERATIONS

  1. All festival operations are managed by the City of Meridian, including allotment of spaces, parking, and truck placement.  Parking is allowed in designated spaces only. For safety reasons, trucks must park with tailgates facing each other. The display area per farmer must include space measuring five feet in length from the back edge of the tailgate, and the width must be one foot wider than the width of the truck.
  2. Regardless of the size or type, vehicles (trucks, cars, or vans, with or without trailers) must be able to fit within the allotted space. If a trailer is used, it must not exceed 12 feet in length.
  3. All produce must be locally grown, or a sign with 3-inch letters must be displayed showing where the produce came from. “Locally grown” means produce either grown or purchased within a 200-mile radius of Meridian. Wholesale purchased produce must be crops that could be grown locally and needs to be labeled as such. Homegrown canned, processed or baked goods, and agriculturally made products/items are also allowed if labeled correctly.
  4. Vendors who accept State or Local Voucher programs must have their farm inspected by the market manager once per year.
  5. All producers at the market must show proof of liability insurance on all vehicles entering the market.
  6. Vendors are expected to conduct themselves in a friendly, businesslike manner. Belligerent actions, profanity, drug or alcohol use, or harassment of other vendors or customers will not be tolerated. Anyone failing to adhere to these rules will be barred from the market and faces forfeiture of booth payments. Recommendations or complaints should be directed to the City of Meridian at 601.485.1998.
