Food Vendors

Each year, we will have a limited number of open spaces for both cooking and non-cooking food vendors for the North Carolina Apple Festival.

There are two types of Food Vendors at the North Carolina Apple Festival: Regular Food Vendors are vendors who prepare and/or serve food on-site during the Festival; Pre-Packaged Food Vendors are those who sell prepared and packaged food off-site and are ready to sell to festival attendees. Examples would include food items such as jars of honey, sauces, dips, fudge or baked goods. We limit the number of Pre-packaged Food Vendors each year and may have a lottery based on the number of applicants.

In order to be considered please submit the Vendor Interest Form, 1 NON-RETURNABLE photo of your booth, and a full list of your proposed menu, including prices. Our single booth spaces are 10’ x 10’.

We will start taking Vendor Interest Forms for 2024 on September 5, 2023 until January 15, 2024. Successful vendors will receive a letter no later than April 15, 2024.

The Selection Committee will meet throughout the spring and invite vendors to participate in that year’s event. Successful vendors will receive a letter and the formal application no later than April 15, 2024. The formal application is to be returned, along with the fees, by the date included in the letter.

Please send the completed Food Vendor Interest application to:
