Walmart is accepting applications for their 6th annual Open Call for entrepreneurs to pitch products to national Walmart buyers.

The company says its Open Calls are opportunities for companies to present products that are made, sourced or grown in the U.S. to meet with a Walmart buyer on June 18th and 19th at the company’s headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas.

“Our customers tell us that products made, sourced or grown in the U.S. are important to them and we work year-round to identify local suppliers and source products that our customers are proud to buy,” said Cindi Marsiglio, Walmart’s vice president of Merchandise Services and U.S. Manufacturing. “Walmart’s Annual Open Call gives us a unique opportunity to meet entrepreneurs from across the country and discover new, niche and innovative products that fill a need for our customers and support jobs right here in America.”

Applications can be submitted here.
