Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost? There is no vendor fee for this event! Just bring your own furnishings, extension cords, and, of course, your products!

What kind of vendors are you looking for? First, we are NOT looking for food vendors (this is a catered event) unless the food is packaged for take-away such as jams and jellies, chocolates, etc. Otherwise, we will be making our selections to ensure a diversity of products and vendors. Keep in mind that folks at this event are traveling in from out of state and will need to travel home with their purchases so larger products are less likely to be selected.
