Farmer and the Dail Spring Market
Saturday, May 11th 8am-2pm
ALL VENDOR SPOTS ARE NOW FULL! We hope you’ll visit us and shop at the Spring Market!
Below you will find our vendor application - please note this is just an application and we will evaluate each one individually. We get a ton of folks applying to be vendors and due to space, we cannot accept everyone. Priority goes to those that make their own products or put their own special twist on pre-made items and those that have a strong social media presence to help get the word out about our market. Please note that with the exception of some of our previous vendors, we do not accept direct-sales companies - not because we don't love you, but because that's the feedback we've gotten from those that have attended our markets in the past as most of them say they already have a <insert company name> person that they consistently shop with.
A little bit about our markets:
Our previous markets were attended by over 1000 visitors shopping with our talented vendors so we are once again calling all local makers, crafters, artists, small business owners, and home business owners who'd like to showcase their products at our Spring Market! We are looking for folks who create unique items that can't be found at the mall! Items that have a story behind them, that show the work and love that go into creating something special. Sound like you? We'd love for you to be a part of our market!
We are once again renting a huge tent for our vendors to set up under that will offer plenty of room for customers to shop and eat. The tent will be on the grass behind our bakery and we will have all vendors under the tent in 10x10 spaces + seating for customers under the tent too. This will ensure a seamless event, rain or shine. We'll have the usual Farmer and the Dail treats and sweets available that day, as well as a bounce house and yard games for kids to help get people to stay around, eat, hang out, and shop. Making your space interactive and fun while displaying your products is what will help make the market a success! The vendor fee for this event is $75 and this will go toward rental fees and advertising the event on Facebook through paid sponsored posts. If you'd like to bring your own 10x10 tent, you can do so with a reduced fee of $55. These will be set up outside of the main tent.
Vendors must be set up by 7:15am on May 11th and must stay until 2pm (no exceptions!). This event is outside (rain or shine!). Please note that since it's outside, there is no wifi so make sure you are bringing your Ipad/IPhone/whatever you use to run credit cards completely charged and connected to a device that doesn't need wifi to work (ex. an iPad with 4G or your phone with Square). We will have the tent set up and marked off with numbered spots so you know exactly where to go. Please note that vendors are responsible for providing their own tables to set up their space.
Since we have a limited number of vendor spots, we are very selective in the businesses that we choose. We try to evaluate each application to make sure we are choosing a good mix of vendors with a variety of unique products that our customers will enjoy shopping. We try to accept a variety of vendors to create the best shopping experience for our customers - usually no more than 2-3 vendors per category (some categories have more, such as jewelry or home decor) - we will accept applications for a few weeks before reviewing them so that we can make sure we are selecting a good mix of vendors. Please be patient as we review applications and we will get back to you as soon as possible, we promise!
We'd like to highlight each vendor participating on our Facebook event, so once approved and paid, please be prepared to email me pictures to use in the post and a blurb about your business to firstname.lastname@example.org (I will send an email that outlines the specific information I need). Posting on your own social media pages and sharing our Spring Market event will be very helpful in making sure people know about the market. We are so excited for our Spring Market and can't wait to once again bring local businesses together and watch our community enjoy this lovely time of year!
Spring Market Application - all vendor spots are now full so we are no longer accepting applications. Thank you!
