WHY BE A MARKET VENDOR?
The Market is a platform for local entrepreneurs and advocates to launch and grow their businesses and initiatives. The Markets attract hundreds of people from all around the region each month that are eager to enjoy about your products. The Market is a great place to educate people about a cause or sell products made locally.
Above all, the Market is about creating a venue for makers to sell their creations and for the community to enjoy our downtown in a new way.
AM I ELIGIBLE TO BE A VENDOR?
Our focus is to build a customer base for vendors from Frankfort, but we welcome interested businesses and causes from around the region to vend. We don’t allow national chains to participate, and the sale of illicit, profane and insensitive materials will not be allowed. Additionally, no alcoholic beverages outside the Market’s beer tent may be sold.
Vendors are allocated a 10’ x 10’ booth space to sell their creations, with the exception of food vendors. Vendors are responsible for bringing all of their own materials, including a tents, tables, lights, chairs, etc. All vendors are required to bring their own extension cords and surge protectors. If your vending requires an electrical connection, please indicate so on your vendor application as electrical connections are limited. Vendors are required to secure any and all permits and licenses required for their booth, as appropriate including all food handling permits and inspections. All vendors are required to have a local business license and may be requested to provide a current certificate of insurance with their application.
