With that being said, if you don’t find the answer to your question below, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
What’s the application process to become a vendor? First, you must complete the vendor application on our website. The markets are curated and juried to achieve a desirable mix of handmade, locally sourced and locally designed products. Only vendors that meet our market eligibility criteria will be contacted.
After I complete my application, when can I expect to receive a response? Only vendors selected to participate in the markets will be contacted. You can expect to receive a response within two weeks of applying. If you do not receive a response within that time frame it means that your products did not meet our criteria OR we have an over saturation of that particular product and have reached our maximum capacity for that product at the markets.
Which products do not meet the market's eligibility criteria? Products manufactured or designed outside of Canada, wholesale items. Too many of the same type of products.
