We can host up to 48 vendors at this location. The farmers' market will also have many vendors next to us.

Price points vary depending on the type of product, but we suggest having a range of price points in order to appeal to different customers.

Will I have time to shop the market?
Sure! We recommend not leaving your booth unattended, so please ask a neighbor to keep an eye on it for you when you step away. If you do stray, go when the market is winding down near closing and check out all of the creative things your fellow vendors have to offer.

We love dogs, but our permit restricts your four legged friends before 11am.

You can make a request, but please note that it is just that. We will try our best to accommodate everyone's requests but cannot guarantee them.
