Applications are currently open for our 4th Annual Handmade & Reclaimed Market!
Please submit your application by August 12th at midnight to be considered as a vendor. Applications will be reviewed in the following days and vendors will be announced by August 19th.
EVENT DETAILS: The Handmade & Reclaimed Market is held from 12-6 on Saturday, September 15th in conjunction with our annual Fall Fest. This wildly popular event includes family friendly games, free food, a beer garden, a storewide sale, live screen printing, and more. This particular market is held to showcase the work of artists that use reclaimed and recycled materials. If your work does not upcycle or reuse material in any way, it does not qualify for the event, but we encourage you to apply to our other markets, which are listed on on our homepage.

JURY: The show will be juried by a panel of (5) staff members for the benefit of both the makers and shoppers. It is our goal to offer a diverse mix of quality goods at affordable prices. Find out more about our jurying process here.

REPEAT VENDORS: We love our market veterans! Please note however, that starting in 2016, we are implementing a policy that prevents vendors from selling at more than 2 of the 3 markets. This allows us to give other vendors a chance, and keeps the market fresh and exciting for shoppers. (Plus, with the diverse themes, it’s rare that a vendor would be a perfect fit for all three!)
