Prepared Food Product Guidelines:

  • If selling packaged food items, all vendors must have Food Sales Establishment License and Department of Agriculture approved labels.
  • Use of local farm ingredients is required. If the product is available locally, it is expected that you will purchase it from a local and sustainable source. We ask that you source products in the following order: from within the market, from local farms, within Pennsylvania, within the tri-state area including Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio, and within the continental US.
  • Use of sustainably produced ingredients is strongly encouraged. Individuals whose sourcing most aligns with these criteria will receive preference for market admittance.

  • All vendors must submit a list of ingredients and sources to be pre-approved by The Oasis Market. If utilizing a seasonal menu, a regular update the to the market is required for pre-approval of new products.
  • We understand that not all products are available locally or within the continental US, such internationally sourced ingredients such as spices, salts, olive oil, and coffee is permitted. However, we encourage vendors to purchase these types of products from a sustainable source. Examples include from certified organic or fair-trade coffee.
