Story of Seasons Guide: How to Unlock Every Trade Depot Vendor

Want to know how to unlock each vendor at the trade depot? Then, check this guide out for everything you need to know!

Story of Seasons has a Trade Depot that lets you ship your items to other countries. This is also the only way to sell anything and get money. You start with the Silk Country vendor, but there are several more you can unlock.

You must fulfill certain shipping requirements to unlock the rest of them and some of them could take forever if you don't know what you need. I'm going to help you there by listing each vendor and how to unlock them.

Check out my Beginner's guide for more help and general info/guides on the game.

This guide will go over unlocking all the trade vendors in Story of Seasons including:

  • Trade Vendors - Brief description of what they are.
  • Unlock requirements - What is needed to unlock them.
  • Important Products - Some important items each vendor sells.

Trade Vendors

Trade vendors are the only way for you to make money. Anything you have, can be shipped through a vendor at the Trade Depot. Different Vendors also sell different things and some of these are only available from certain vendors.

There are also recommended shipping items that change for each vendor. These items will sell for more money for as long as they stay on the list. You can check the entrance booth at the trade depot for those items and how long they will sell for the higher price.

  • Be sure to check your calendar often to see when vendors will arrive
  • When vendors arrive at the trade depot, they will stay for 2 days
  • It is good to try to plan your crops around the vendors
    • Crops stay fresh for 3 days, so try to have them ready during their freshness period to increase the amount of money you get for each crop.

Finally, there are trade requests. Each vendor has multiple requests for shipments. Fulfilling these requests not only get you money, but extra rewards items. The items are listed on the request.
