MARKET DAY GUIDELINES

A completed application must be submitted, confirmed, accepted and payment processed, to be considered as a vendor for Market Days. One you receive a confirmation and acceptance of your application, you may make your payment online.
 
Booth Assignments
Booth assignments are made based on vendor type and at the discretion of the coordinator. No vendor is guaranteed a specific space
 
Payment
PLEASE NOTE: NO REFUNDS OR TRANSFERS WILL BE MADE DUE TO VENDOR CANCELLATION. In the event of inclement weather, we will make every effort to hold/continue the event. If the event is cancelled, we will roll over your payment to another date or issue a refund.
 
Parking 
You may park in the front parking lot during set up and take down, but we request that you move your vehicles to allow more room for the participants and also so that vendors do not block the spaces for the other merchants who do business in the center. Street parking is available on Water St and behind Water St Village.
Restroom Locations
A restroom is located in Fresh! Cafe
 
Vendor Set-Up Equipment
We supply a limited amount of electric on the grounds. If we are able to accommodate your request, we will hold your spot by an outlet. You are responsible for your set-up. We do not supply tents, tables, chairs, or weights. Please be considerate of your neighboring vendors. Slight overflow for the space you have paid for is acceptable. We must be mindful of traffic flow and of other vendors. The majority of your product should remain in your paid space. Storage of boxes and extra items must also be within your paid space.
 
Weights for Tents
Tents must be weighted down with 40lbs of weight on each leg. This is the responsibility of the vendor and is a safety issue.
Trash Disposal
A dumpster is located in the back of Water St. Village
