Daily "Drop-ins" will be accepted if space is available at $40.00 (Single Space/One Tent) $75.00 (Double Space/Two Tents).
An application fee of $75.00 applies to all new vendors payable upon approval to join our Market. This fee will be included on your invoice for 2017. All fees are non-refundable and due within 72 hrs of the approval of your application. We will invoice you via email. If payment is not received within 72 hours, we move on to the next vendor application.
