WHEN WILL I KNOW IF I AM ACCEPTED TO A MARKET I’VE APPLIED TO?
Once our Market applications are open on our website, vendors may apply at any time prior to the show date. We will evaluate applications on a rolling, first come first serve basis so be sure to apply early!
Approved vendor, we will send an acceptance email and invoice for the booth fee. We will evaluate applications that are received up show date on a rolling basis if space is available.
WHY WOULDN’T I BE ACCEPTED?
We approve a wide variety of locally made, handcrafted, ethically-sourced and vintage items. While we support all types of small businesses, we do not allow MLM, direct sales, or items that are drop-shipped from overseas. We also accept limited numbers of categories of goods, so if you apply after we have already approved several of your same category we would not approve.
If you have any questions about whether or not your product will make sense at one of our events, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
WHAT’S THE CANCELLATION POLICY?
We totally understand that life happens! As our markets are rain or shine all vendor fees are non refundable. If a make up day is available, you may participate or transfer to another show date if booth space is available.
ARE THE MARKETS INDOOR OR OUTDOOR?
All Side Yard Markets are held outside. We are a rain-or-shine event.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO SET UP FOR A MARKET?
You will need to provide your own 10x10 tent, tables, tent weights and anything you need for your booth setup. TENT WEIGHTS ARE MANDATORY. We would advise sunscreen and water, too! If the event goes into the evening, we recommend bringing battery operated lights. If you’d like any additional guidance, please email us with any questions you may have.
IS ELECTRICITY AVAILABLE?
Electricity is limited. Please select as an add on at time of application. No gas generators are allowed in the booth areas. If the event goes into the evening, we recommend bringing battery operated lights.
WHAT IS THE TYPICAL TIMEFRAME FOR SETUP AND BREAKDOWN FOR VENDORS?
Vendor setup begins two hours prior to any event. All events have pre-defined end times and breakdown begins at the official conclusion of the event. Market times do vary so make sure to check event times when applying.
