EXPECTATIONS OF VENDOR ATTENDANCE
The market operates Saturdays from 11 am to 3 pm weekly from June 23, 2018 to September 22, 2018. Set-up begins at 10 am. All vendors are expected to be prepared to sell promptly at 11 am, The vendor must be parked at his/her assigned parking area by 10:45 am on the day of market. If a vendor arrives after 10:45 am it is a safety hazard for the vendor to take their vehicle to the assigned space and the vehicle will be unloaded from the vendor parking area. If a vendor is not in their space by 10:45am and has not informed the Market Manager that he/she will be late by 10:45 am, the vendor will forfeit his/her spot for that day. Market ends at 3 pm with no sales occurring before 11 am. Vendors are not required to stay until the market closes, even if all goods are sold. All vendors are expected to be out of the market site by 3:30 pm.
EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES
Each vendor must supply his/her own tent, canopies, tables, chairs, weather protection and display equipment. Each vendor is solely responsible for any damages or personal injury resulting from its equipment or set-up. We can supply electricity to a limited number of vendors, please specify if you need electricity in the comments section on the application form.
The Market will not be canceled due to rain. The Market will allow the vendor the decision to, at its own risk, leave or stay and carry on in the event the Market is called due to threatening weather. However, in such circumstances, staff may not be present and is not responsible for any damage. When rain is accompanied by lightning and/or high winds, it may be necessary for vendors to drop their tents to their lowest levels and take cover. Canceling or closing the Market early will be handled on an independent basis.
