Guidelines for Vendors
Cost: Vendor spaces are still only $15 per week.
Set-up & check In: Set up time is 7:00 a.m. Vendors are to check in at the Market Information Booth upon arrival. Spaces are assigned by Market Manager and space priority is given to vendors of products for human consumption. Vendors prepaying three (3) months in advance will have their spaces held until 8:00 a.m.
Vehicles & Parking: No vehicles are allowed in the market place after 7:45 am and prior to 12:15 pm (Spring/Summer) except in emergencies (8:45 a.m. and prior to 1:15 pm during Fall/Winter). Vendors who require set up next to their vehicles can request a vendor space adjacent to street parking.
Electricity: Electricity is available at the market at outlets near the bathrooms and the “social” tree. Vendors who use electricity will be subject to a small additional charge.
Locally grown: Produce must be home-grown within a 100-mile radius. Contact Market Manager for exceptions.
Crafts: Crafts must be hand-made locally; other items will be deemed “swap meet” items.
Equipment: Vendors are to provide their own tables, chairs, canopies and umbrellas. Bring change and bags for customer’s purchases.
Marketing Tips: Vendors are encouraged to be creative with arranging merchandise; display a sign with name of farm, ranch or business and its location as well as price listings. Recipes and information about products can enhance sales.
Clean-up: Please keep in mind we are guests at the park; Clean up the area of your booth and the surrounding area before leaving.
Other Rules: There is no smoking or consumption of alcoholic beverages allowed in the market place; neither are firearms allowed. Keep your children under control at all times; the market assumes no responsibility or liability for any actions either caused by or involving your children. Dogs are to be leashed and under control at all times; vendors are urged to remind customers of this rule and report the offending dog to the market manager. Any altercation between/among vendors will result in all those involved being expelled from the Market for that day.
