Payment is required in advance to hold your space! We often sell out within the first week or two of opening registration, so please register early. Spaces are first come, first serve, with the first 48 hours after each market accepting reservations for current vendors to register, only. Spaces are NOT saved! Indoor spaces are reserved for current indoor vendors to book first before we allow outdoor vendors to book.

If you would like to be a sponsor for a future market and have your business featured for supporting the community, we would be happy to hear from you! Our Facebook page reaches over 40k viewers monthly, not including our website, Instagram, etc. so this is a great opportunity for exposure and promotion for any local business!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send you more info on being a sponsor for an upcoming market or activity! Thank you!
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 "Character" sheet 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!
