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.

We are currently accepting new applications for 2018. We strongly encourage you to apply if you feel you would be good fit at the Market. We have some booths retiring and so we know there will be some space starting in January!
