We are requesting all applications to be submitted by March 28th, so we can recruit any vendors as needed.

Attendance is expected every week. If you cannot make it, the Market Coordinator needs to be notified by Monday at 12:00 p.m. Failure to do so may result in a reallocation of the space.

Larger spaces will be negotiated with the Market Manager (Smaller or shared seasonal spaces will be accommodated on a case by case basis.)If for any reason you cannot attend over an extended period of time, or you cancel your attendance or are asked to stop attending due to behavioral issues, no refund will be granted.

Half season rates are $110; however, full season vendors will have first dibs to market their product. Please indicate the weeks you will be in attendance on the contract. I need all contracts and payments in full by March 28th. If for any reason you are asked not to attend, no refunds will be granted.Management has the discretion to ask a vendor to no longer participate in the market.
