Facts About The Market
This is a juried show, set-up and display are very important. We will be visiting your social media sites to look through photos of your merchandising. If you have not sold at a show before or are just starting up please do not hesitate to apply. We love finding new talent! Not all applications will be accepted. (Absolutely no direct sales (MLM) businesses)
We accept vintage collectors, handmade artisan vendors, lifestyle good vendors, specialty boutiques, artists, and local food vendors. We are seeking unique, current, and interesting items that our customers will be excited to shop. We limit the amount of vendors in each category so that our vendors do great and our customers have a good variety to shop. You may have a few "new mass produced" items in your booth but the majority of merchandise for sale must be handcrafted, vintage, boutique items or locally made.
This is an outdoor venue and we're in the Midwest, weather will always be a gamble. Makers Market SP is a RAIN OR SHINE event. A tent is strongly encouraged but is not required.
