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 72 hours after each market accepting reservations for current vendors to register, only. Spaces are NOT saved!
We accept payment at each market for our NEXT market in cash/check at our Info Booth. Registration opens each market day, for the following one. We currently don't accept payments for markets beyond the month ahead.
Unless we refund you due to an issue adding you to the market, there are NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS on market fees. If you cancel before the event, we do not offer refunds, sorry. We operate regardless of weather conditions.

2 pm - 3 pm - Break down time. NO tear down/packing up prior to 2 pm allowed! Indoor Vendors, we have to lock doors by 3 pm, please make sure you are OUT of the building by then.
If you would like to donate a raffle/auction prize for our next raffle or auction, please email email@example.com with a photo and description of your item(s) ($25 or greater value). You can bring your prize to the Info Booth before the market opens. We will be promoting the prize and company online at least 2 times with a link to your company FB page or website in thanks for your donation! Our events often get over 40,000 views so this can be a great marketing tool. Proceeds from raffles are used towards future Kid's Activities (pony rides, crafts, characters, etc), so your participation is much appreciated! Thank you!
When you register, you will have the option to participate in our Scavenger Hunt Activity (unless we are sold out!) For this activity, we give participating booths a "Character" matching the theme of the market to post on your canopy, facing customers. Kid's at the market are given stamp cards to visit vendors with Characters and have their cards stamped. After getting enough stamps, kids can return to the Info Booth where they will receive a prize (usually a goodie bad) for completing the Scavenger Hunt. This gives kid's a free, covid-friendly activity to enjoy and your booth additional exposure to potential customers! Win-win!
Please do NOT come if you are ill or should be in quarantine for contact with others who have COVID. Indoor and Outdoor mask wearing is optional. Please provide sanitizer for yourself and customers in need. We space vendors 2-3 feet feet from one another. Please don't impede on this space. No unpackaged food samples. Samples must be approved and packaged prior to market. All food products should be appropriately packaged/covered. Food vendors must provide to-go containers for all food given to customers. We have an indoor restroom for hand-washing, and sanitizing stations on site.
