Vendor set up begins at 10am. NO EARLYBIRDS!!! (For real. Please + thank you!)
Vendors are responsible for their own tent/table/chairs/display items. Please be mindful of space + neighbors. Spaces are allotted as 10x10. Let us know if you have special requests!
The market will take place in the lot between House of Swank and Landmark Tavern. The Blount Street deck has stairs + a ramp right there into the lot.
Options for load in/out:
The Blount Street deck is the nearest and if you’re on one of the lower levels, you can even access the lot directly from the deck at the back of Landmark. There are about 5 stairs and also a ramp for easy load in.
You are also welcome to pull up in front of HOS to unload, then move your vehicle.
Street parking is free. The deck might be about $5-7 for the day. (Never sure what they’re gonna charge on weekends.)
Artists will fill in spots on a first come, first serve basis. Please check in with us (Kristin, Matt, or Danielle) prior to setting up. We’ll guide you to a space.
