Every vendor is asked to participate in our Auction with a donation at least (1) time per year. If you would like to donate a raffle/auction prize for our next raffle or auction, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo & description of your item(s) ($25 or greater value). You can bring your prize to the Info Booth before the market opens. We will promote the prize & your company online at least 2 times with a link to your company in thanks! Our events often get 40k+ views so this can be a great marketing tool! Proceeds from auctions go towards future market Activities (pony rides, crafts, characters, live music etc). Your participation is much appreciated!
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" 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!

Please provide sanitizer for yourself and customers in need. We are currently spacing OUTDOOR vendors 2-3 feet feet from one another. Don't impede on this space. No unpackaged food samples. Samples must be approved by market manager. Food products should be appropriately packaged. Food vendors must provide to-go containers for customers. We have an indoor restroom for hand-washing, and sanitizing stations on site.
