Non Profit, Community Service, and Educational Booth
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do spaces cost for a community service booth?
Spaces are free of charge but you MUST be focused on community service. If we feel that you are more focused on promoting your business, you will not be allowed back. Community service booths are to show the community that you don't only sell in this community but also serve/volunteer.

Spaces are free of charge but you MUST be focused on education. If we feel that you are more focused on promoting your business, you will not be allowed back.
How much do spaces cost for a non-profit booth?
Spaces are free of charge if you just want to share information about your non profit and accept donations. If you are selling items for your non profit, the booth space is $25 and items sold cannot compete with permanent vendors.
What are the market hours and what time do I setup and take down?
Market hours are from 9am-1pm. We do expect all vendors to be present during those times. You may arrive as early as 7am to setup (Most vendors arrive around 7:50am) and you may take down at 1pm. Tent & Weight Rentals don’t begin until 7:30am.
What do we need to bring?
All vendors are expected to have a 10x10 tent of any color. They MUST have 25lbs of weights ATTACHED to each leg of the tent at a minimum. The market does rent out the following items for $5 each: tent, weights. The rented items must be scheduled in advance to make sure we have them the day you come. You will be invoiced for the items before the market and will need to pay before Thursday at 4pm.
What if I am unable to attend?
If you are unable to attend for any reason, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know before the market begins. Multiple missed markets will remove you from future spot placement.
