Bensidoun USA operates both large and small markets—each being unique to meet the needs of the community it’s in. Public markets are synonymous with French culture and style, as expressed through the sale of fresh, locally grown produce, seasonal flowers, boutique clothing and jewelry and original arts and crafts. Though each market will be unique per its community, each French Market will house booths that showcase and sell fresh and locally grown produce, artisanal baked goods and cheeses, grass fed meats, and other organic specialties. 

All vendors interested in participating in the 2012 Bensidoun USA French and Farmers Markets can access the application here, email, or call 312.575.0286.   Please contact our offices immediately if any of these  markets are of interest to you.  Vendor incentives are available to qualified businesses.

Accepted applicants will have access to a system of local markets and pop-up events that service a large geographic area. Both full and part time vendors are encouraged to apply as Bensidoun USA strives to make their experience at outdoor markets a pleasant and consistent one – no matter the town or the day of the week.  Bensidoun USA provides traditional imported French Market Canopies for its vendors at the majority of its venues. They believe in and support the communities they are in and work closely with their sponsoring organization, local government, local businesses and local non-profits to provide vibrant public markets that address the needs of the community and connect the business owner directly to the consumer.
