How to be a Vendor
Reserving a Space
We are so excited that you are interested in selling your fabulous funky finds at our flea market! We typically have about 55-60 vendors each month selling antiques, collectibles, vintage clothing and jewelry, candles, self-care products, upcycled items, and artisan wares. We are always on the lookout for vendors selling funky stuff you can't find at your local big-box store.
To apply as a vendor in 2023, complete the Vendor Application. We will accept applications through the winter months, but will not make our final selection until March, 2023. If you are selected, we will email you. After your first event with us, we may ask you to be an annual vendor. We will assign you a space for the entire year; you will not have to reapply each month, and you'll get a discounted annual rate (one free month!).
If you are not an annual vendor, we have month-to-month spaces available. Each month you will have to reapply and there is no discounted fee. A new application will be posted on the first of each month and we will respond to you as quickly as we can.
Please note that completing a Vendor Application does not guarantee you a space at our flea. We can only accept between 50 and 60 vendors and curate our vendor list looking for a mix of merchandise that is the right fit for our market. We do not use a first-come/first-serve system of selecting our vendors. If you are a no-show at one of our events, you will not be eligible for a space in the future.
Note: we will email you when we approve your application and again with set up instructions during the week prior to the event. If you do not receive this email, check your spam folder and email filters to make sure you are receiving emails from our site.
Payment and Rates
First-time vendors and month-to-month vendors can pay up front or on the day of the event. After you are approved as a vendor, we will email you with more details. We accept cash, Venmo, and credit cards. We add an additional $2 service fee for credit card transactions.
On the application, you will choose the size of your selling space. Vendors set up their tables in parking spaces in our sales area and each space is about 9.5 feet wide and 16 feet deep. You may not park your vehicle in your space due to our small sales area (nearby parking is available).
Our 2023 rates are:
one space = $30. An 8x8 tent fits in this space.
1 and 1/2 spaces = $45. A 10x10 tents fits in this space with entry to your space from the front.
2 spaces = $60. A 10x10 fits in this space with entry to your space from the front and sides.
Please note that there is no wi-fi or electricity in the sales area. We do not hold the flea during all-day bad weather events including high winds and rain. In case of cancellation, we will post a notice on our website by noon on the day before the flea and issue refunds to our month-to-month vendors who have paid in advance.
Set Up and Take Down
Set up typically begins at 6:30AM on the day of the flea. The loop that most booths are located on is closed to vehicles at 8:30AM. Take down usually happens at 3:00PM. For pedestrian safety, cars are not allowed in the sales area prior to this time. Approved vendors are assigned space numbers which are posted on the parking spaces the night before our events.
To avoid early morning traffic issues in the sales area, we recommend that vendors:
back into your space and unload
move your car to designated vendor parking
We cannot provide tents/tables/chairs, so please bring your own. You must have weights for your tents or you will be asked to take your tent down. You can fit a lot of tables in one parking space, so think BIG! Help us leave the space the way we find it! We provide trash cans and trash pick up at the flea.
Food and Restrooms
There are public restrooms available in the City Hall lower level from 8:00-3:00PM.
We have a food truck at each flea selling tasty food. Additionally, coffee, snacks and drinks are for sale at the market.
Please no smoking at the flea market out of consideration for our customers and nearby vendors.
What kind of things can I sell?
You never know what you'll find at a flea market, which adds to the fun!
Flea markets are typically a fun mix of curated collectible, antique, and vintage items. You can also find one-of-a-kind items from small businesses and artisans, and crafted/upcycled items. We do not accept vendors who only sell brand new, mass-produced merchandise. MLM vendors are not permitted. You are not permitted to sell illegal substances, firearms or alcohol at the flea market.
Contact us if you have a specific question about your merchandise.
Tables and Tents
Is there paperwork I need to complete?
As part of the vendor application process, vendors must complete a standard one-time only liability waiver. Please check in with us at our vendor check-in table at each flea to sign a waiver and make any payments.
Vendors typically bring bags and packing materials for fragile items. Please take your trash and all belongings home with you at the end of the day. Make your display inviting to attract customers. Start off the day with enough cash to make change. Mark your prices clearly, but be prepared to haggle -- this is part of the fun of a flea!
