The market features live music May through December and accepts SNAP, FMNP, FreshConnect Checks and vouchers from the local food pantry. As a program of Otsego 2000, the CFM receives extensive outside support while vendors remain in control of all governing matters.

Application Process
Each year all vendors must submit an application and all necessary related materials. Once submitted, the applications are reviewed for completeness of information. All complete applications will then be referred to the Vendor Selection Committee for review and to identify and resolve any product saturation considerations. All new vendors and new products will be juried to ensure high quality and product diversity in the market. All business information will be kept confidential. The committee is made up of six full-time vendors, the market manager, and a representative of the Otsego 2000 board.
