"Why do we love Fresh Markets? Oh, let us count the ways! Reason # 1, Jenna❤️, an incredible person so filled with warmth and joy. She is so terrific to work with! Reason # 2, the other vendors! What an amazing group of talented individuals! From the moment we started here, we were adopted into this amazing community (family really). Reason #3 working in the iconic Bell Works building. Such a great place to work! Reason #4. Cara and Danny, two more wonderful, creative, deeply caring people!"

"Joining FRESH markets as a vendor means becoming part of a thriving community. The market serves as a meeting point where shoppers can connect with each other. However, as vendors, we also connect on a deeper level of mutual support and encouragement."

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I register as a vendor?
We typically receive anywhere from a few dozen to 100+ applications per week and that we personally review each one so please be patient if we do not respond immediately.
Why do we charge an application fee?
In fact, last year we received over 2500 applications.
We take the time to review each and every one individually, sometimes multiple times, to ensure that we're able to provide a high-quality experience for our attendees.
While we love being able to support so many amazing businesses and creators, it can be tough for our small team to keep up with the volume of applications we receive.
That's why we've introduced a nominal application fee - it helps us dedicate additional resources to the review process and also helps deter individuals who may not be serious about participating or who submit multiple applications.
Which payment methods do you take?
In addition to credit card payments, we also offer financing options for our seasonal plans through ACH payments.
This means that instead of paying for your seasonal plan upfront, you can make automatic payments over time using your bank account.
We hope this helps, and we look forward to working with you!
I'm selling food, do I need to do anything special?
What are your vendor guidelines?
We strongly encourage (i.e. require) anyone looking to sell with us to review them in detail.
I need to cancel my booking or change my date?
We encourage (i.e. require) all vendors to review it prior to selling with us and please be aware that we will enforce it.
What does it mean if my application is pending or was rejected for lack of space?
For things like candles, soaps, and jewelry there are a lot of makers looking to sell and not a lot of space.
If your application is still pending we haven’t reviewed it yet. Once it is reviewed, we will notify you via email and text message whether is was approved or rejected.
How do I know if I’m a good fit to vend?
Do others consider you a 'nice person'?
If so, chances are that we'd love to work with you.
What happens if it rains?
You should be prepared for possible rain showers during market hours. We recommend having a backup plan to safeguard your products.
Are you dog/kid/reptile friendly?
If you're unsure, it always helps to DM us on Facebook or Instagram and ask.
The market I want to sell at is sold out - now what?
Once a market is sold-out we maintain a waitlist in case of cancellations. We then carefully select from that list to fill in the missing categories. We usually have a few cancellations but not many so please keep this in mind.
Do I need a tent? How big is my space? Should I bring a table?
If your setup requires additional space please contact [email protected] to discuss your options.
