Merchant Application

Thank you for your interest in vending at the Marketplace!
Please note: This is the Merchant application- Readers please apply here

THIS HAS BEEN UPDATED FOR 2018!  Please note the new information.

In order to provide the best possible selection of vendors and services to our patrons, the MM&PF is a juried event.  Our vendor spaces are filled to capacity every year, and we have always maintained a waiting list. Please fill out the vendor application below to be considered for the Marketplace.  The website and description you enter willl be used for our website and event program.  We reserve the right to edit descriptions for length or content.  Please refer to our style guide for best practices.  The more accurate the information provided, the better equipped we will be to evaluate your application.

Applications for 2019 must be received by November 1, 2018.  We will announce our vendor selections a little later that month, at which point you will have two weeks to pay your vendor fee by check or PayPal, or your space will be given to the next applicant on the waiting list.  Between that and cancellations, we always end up pulling a few people from the wait list- So don't give up hope if you don't make the initial cut.

Vendor spaces for 2018 are priced as follows, and are supplied with a 6' table and 2 chairs.  There are a limited number of 8' tables available first-come-first-served.  If needed, a space against the wall with electricity is an additional $10.  If you wish to do readings as well as vending, or provide a service, such as massage or reiki, you will want a flex-space: larger than the standard vendor space, this has room for both a vending table and reading table, or for a massage table- If you like, we can handle your appointments for you the same as with readers.

Both Days:  $120
Saturday Only:  $80
Sunday Only:   $65

Preference will be given to vendors who can do both days, but we do have a limited number of one day spaces available.

How to increase your chance of getting in:

  • We love having unique vendors!  Tell us what sets you apart.  This is ESPECIALLY important for jewelry vendors, as so many apply.

  • We generally prefer handcrafters over buy/sell, but we like to have at least one vendor with "the usual" (read: AG) stuff anyway, and a well curated selection of books or crystals is always a hit.

  • Including a photo of your display will DEFINITELY help your application. Provide a website where we may see them, or email them to Beth.

  • Be honest about what you have. We understand that you might sell a few tangental odds and ends, but if it takes up more than 20% of your space, it factors into our jury process- If your application says that you sell herbs, but half your table is jewelry or books, you will not be asked back. If you plan to split your space with another vendor, you must include BOTH your information on the application.

  • Submit your application on time- Or better yet, early:  We start taking applications almost a year in advance.

  • MLM and resellers like Avon, Scentsy, Herbalife, Pampered Chef etc., go straight to the bottom of the pile- You're welcome to apply, but your chances are not good. Sorry, but we already have to turn away far too many talented craftspeople just because of space.

We give preference to vendors who fit the overall theme of the event, ie: "Magickal".  If you sell something completely unrelated, such as replacement windows (yes, this was a real application we received), we suggest becoming a sponsor instead.




Vendor spots for 2018 are currently full, but you will be placed on our waiting list in case another vendor cancels. Please check this box if you would like to apply for next year as well at this time.

Please provide a link to photos of your work- Your own site, Facebook, Flickr, whatever- as long as we can see pictures. While this is not mandatory, photos- especially of your booth/display- will increase your chance of being selected as a vendor. We choose a number of vendor photos to include on our website, but we cannot guarantee that yours will be featured in this way. This will also be used to link to you from our website.
There is no discount for additional spaces. Maximum 2.
There is an additional $10 fee to guarantee a space with electricity. These spaces are first come, first served. All spaces come with a 6' table and two chairs, unless requested otherwise.
100 words or less. Please write in third person. Feel free to name specific products, but do not include complete lists of every style, option, etc. Your listing may be edited before inclusion in our website or program. Refer to our style guide at the link above.
Any particular requests, or info that may help us with our selection?
