Your application must be approved BEFORE submitting payment for the market. We limit vendors in each category to make sure they are successful.
Please note we are often sold out in most vendor categories. Farms, cottage foods and unique products are always in higher demand so we still have our application open. Most other categories are on a waiting list for potentially months to come. We often have a lot of applications to sort through so please allow at least 1 week for us to respond to your application before emailing to check back. Thanks!

When registering, you'll have the option to participate in our Scavenger Hunt Activity (unless sold out)! For this activity, we give participating booths a themed "Character" matching the market theme to post on your canopy, facing customers. Kid's at the market are given stamp cards to visit participating vendors & have their cards stamped. After enough stamps, kids return to the Info Booth where they receive a prize for completing the Hunt. This gives kids a free, fun activity to enjoy & your booth additional exposure to potential customers! Win-win!
