What to know for the Market at the Depot in Anacortes

Venue is indoors, with additional spaces outdoors on the patio. Located at 611 R Avenue, Anacortes, WA 98221


Vendor Parking:

Street parking. We request you do not park directly next to or in front of the building during market hours to leave room for customers to park. There is a lot of street parking available along 6th and 7th, as well as further down R Avenue.

Market Hours: 10 AM - 3PM

Setup Details

All spots are pre-reserved. If you need a reminder on which spot you reserved, a map will be posted at the bottom of this webpage (the most updated map will be posted the Friday before the market event) and booths indoors will be marked off with tape so you have guidelines of where to setup when you arrive.


There are a few entrances to the building that will be accessible during setup and breakdown. On the north side of the building, there is a door on the West side of the building has stairs, while the door on the East side of the building has a ramp. 

For Load-In: You can park in the spaces directly in front of the building, or on the back side of the patio along the building. Please move your car as soon as you are finished unloading.


Setup begins the morning of the market at 8AM.

Outdoor vendors are welcome to setup early if they wish. Please plan to have your booth ready for customers no later than 9:50AM. 


If you need longer than 2 hours to setup, please contact Frannie at and let her know how much time you need. She may be able to open the building slightly earlier than 8AM.

** UPDATE: A map of where to park to unload has been added to the bottom of this page.

Once you have unloaded your car, please move it as soon as possible so other vendors may unload as well.

The event goes from 10 AM until 3PM. 

What to know about the Booth Spaces:

The booth size you reserved is the amount of space you have to play with. Booths are all shoulder to shoulder with their neighboring vendors so please plan accordingly (meaning there is not a path in between booths to walk through). You'll want to plan your booth layout with an option to be able to move around your displays without entering your neighbors booth.

If you are unable to make it for any reason, please let us know - even if it is the morning of! We want to make sure there are no gaps and will move vendors around if someone can't make it. Email 


The property does have WIFI and decent cell coverage.

Wifi is free and does not need a password.

Breakdown Details

Vendors are not permitted to break down their booth prior to 3PM as it provides a negative experience for shoppers. Please plan on breaking down your booth prior to pulling your car to the the lot to make breakdown go as smoothly and allow for cars to pull up easily.

Booth needs/
Building info

All vendors must provide their own setup, including tables, linens displays, and tents (if you are outside).

Please note: Tables are *not* provided with your space.

Electrical outlets are available in most booths, some may need an extension cord. Outdoor booths do not have access to electrical outlets.

Booth lighting: The building is old and the lighting can be inconsistent in areas. If your items have specific lighting needs, please bring display lights and an extension cord (or even better if they are battery powered - I love using a Halo Bolt portable charger for everything!) 

A quick tip...

   ...bring lighting even if you don't think your booth needs it! During gray months, it will help brighten up your booth and attract more customers.

Walls: Please be mindful if you want to hang items on the walls of the building. We recommend that you use command strip hooks or 3M tape - but it must be fully removed once the event is complete.

Layers: The building can be a very drafty, especially in the winter. Bring lots of layers just in case you run cold. We crank up the heat - but it still tends to be cold.

Bathrooms: There are bathrooms located in the building, as well as outdoors. 

Food: Bring snacks to keep nourished throughout the day as there are no food vendors on site! The closest food to the building is on Commercial Avenue (Village Pizza, El Jinete Mexican, Island Cafe, etc) or up at Little Chicago Food Court on Q Avenue and 11th street (has food trucks). Occasionally we will have food vendors at our markets, but it is best to plan ahead and bring food in the case they aren't on site.


We request that vendors not park directly next to the building between 10AM and 3PM (market hours) as we want to leave this open as much as possible for shoppers.


Re-iterating this point as it gets missed frequently and we have to request vendors move their car during the market. 

Parking at this venue is all street parking. We request you do not park directly next to or in front of the building during market hours to leave room for customers to park. There is a lot of street parking available along 6th and 7th, as well as further down R Avenue.

Payment types

All vendors need to have their own payment processing methods.

There is not a cash machine on site, so if you are allowing cash payments, please be sure to bring your own petty cash to make change. 

Vendors can choose any method in processing their own payments. Many vendors use Square, Venmo, or Paypal to process electronic payments as well as accepting cash. This is all completely up to you and what works for your business.

There is Wifi Available if you don't want to use cell data and the wifi is open (no password needed).

Consignment Vendors

This only applies to vendors in the Consignment Room.

Please send me your list of items and pricing prior to the Wednesday before the market so I can get it entered into my POS system (if you'd like an itemized report after the market). I'll be able to send you a report after the event with what you've sold.

The Final Layout for the next market will be posted here by the Friday morning before the market date.
