Register Now Rules & Guidelines

Check-in Procedures

  • You may form a line at the check-in table but DO NOT enter the market area. Only volunteers setup early.
  • Bring your canopy to the check-in booth. You must have it with you to get your assigned space and we won’t hold spots waiting for a canopy to arrive.
  • If you want to be next to someone, you must check-in together.
  • Be prepared to show your registration email if asked. It is your entry into the market.
  • Let staff know at check-in if you have a generator or canopy larger than 10’x10’, so we can place you in the right spot.
  • Extra t-shirts are available for $7 each, cash or Venmo.

Setup

  • You’ll be directed where to setup your canopy (you cannot pick your space).
  • Setup your canopy FIRST, then unload all your supplies (wagons are the best!). You cannot pull your car into the market at any time.
  • Immediately move your car to the designated parking.

Booths

  • $25 for 1st market each year. $20 for subsequent markets in the same year.
  • Canopies or umbrellas are recommended but not required and must be anchored down.
  • Children must bring all their own supplies, including tables and chairs.
  • Children must remain at the booth at all times. If the child leaves for any reason, put up a sign that says “Be Back Soon.”
  • If you sell out, put up a sign that says “Sold Out.” Feel free to go enjoy the rest of the market; you can’t tear down early.
  • Power is not available.
  • If you sell anything edible, you must provide a garbage can for customers and haul out your own trash.
  • Wear disposable gloves if handling food.
  • There are no refunds for any reason, and markets are non-transferrable.

Parents

  • DO NOT engage the customers directly, answer questions or handle money. DO help your child do all of those things!
  • Parents MAY NOT prepare or serve food- everything must be done by the child.
  • Sit in the back of the booth and act like you’re not there! At the heart of this experience is for your child to do the selling.
