So You Want to Be a Vendor...
As you can see on our home page, we are open September-July, every Saturday, 8-2, on the 200 block of N. Kentucky Avenue and the 200 block of E. Bay Street.
A great way to start this process is to visit our Market and talk to the Market Manager, Jim Luna (863-221-4633) and some of the vendors. Read over some of our recent newsletters to have a feel for what goes on here and get a sense of our community.
Prospective vendors should talk with the Market Manager to discuss what you want to sell as a vendor at the Market. Not sure? He has some ideas for some new products we'd like to offer customers. Sometimes we have all we need of a certain type of vendor and we would need to have any additional ones go on a waiting list. For example, we wouldn't want 4 different coffee vendors!
We are not a "flea market" or a place for ordinary resale of products. We emphasize handmade, homegrown, wholesome products, with a few exceptions that are carefully controlled.
Maybe you represent a non-profit and would like a table at the Market to share your information. We allow that, with the approval of the Market Manager. The main things we ask for non-profits is that when they are at the Market, they provide something of value to the Market's customers and that they stay for the duration of the Market's hours, 8 a.m. - 2 p.m., unless prior exceptions have been granted by the Market Manager. Contact the Market Manager (863-221-4633) to discuss.
Take a look at the requirements below to find out what kinds of documentation you will need, what the rules are, and the "fees" to be a vendor.
We are always looking for new vendors and we are glad to hear all inquiries! Thanks for your interest and we hope you can join us!
