Become a Vendor

Are you a passionate producer, maker, or baker, looking to meet great customers and be in a fabulous environment? Vending at the Market is a lot of work, but can be rewarding both financially and from the perspective of a weekly strong, local (and tourist) customer base that are always interested in what’s newly available and very willing to support our local vendors.
