About the event

UPDATE: Please note that our date for May has changed and is now on Saturday, May 14th. You will be notified by email if you are accepted as a vendor. Please be sure to check your spam folder to ensure you don't miss any emails!

Our markets have become so popular that we now need to switch to an application process to ensure a variety of different types of businesses! 

Submitting an application does not guarantee a spot at the market. You will be notified via email if you have been assigned a booth at either or both markets. 

Please read through all of the details below for applying.

What types of vendors can apply?

We love to have a wide variety of vendors at our markets. If you make the items yourself, or personally curate items, please apply! We occasionally allow MLM or reselling vendors, but priority will be given toward vendors who make their own goods. Application fee is $10 (non-refundable).  We are unable to allow vendors to sell cannabis products or alcoholic beverages at this time.

How will vendors be chosen?

Creative Avenue has a team that will review each vendors application and social media/product photos to ensure we have a variety of each category of vendor. Vendors will be notified by email once the selection has been finalized. Vendors can share a booth with another business, but both vendors will need to submit their own application. April vendors will be emailed no later than March 11th. May vendors will be emailed no later than April 10th.

What types of booths are available?

There are several different sizes of booths. 

When submitting your application, please select all booth sizes that would work for your business and one will be assigned to you if you are chosen for the market. Specific booth spots cannot be requested. You will be assigned your space based on what size options you choose.

The venue has it's unique charm and has a quirky layout. Booth spaces range from 12x14' to 6x5'. Please expect to have a neighboring vendor on both sides of your booth and plan to have your seating accessible (if you need it) only through or inside your booth. Outdoor booths are also available.

Consignment booths are also available for vendors who can't physically be there to sell their items - each consignment booth is the size of a 6ft table (6x2.5').

Q&A for Approved Market Vendors

When can vendors set up?

The venue will be open two hours prior to the start of the event. If you need more time to set up, coordinate directly with Frannie to schedule a time for either Friday before the market or earlier on Saturday morning. The building has two entrances: one in the front of the building on Commercial Avenue which has stairs and one in the back of the building which has an ADA accessible ramp.

What do vendors need to provide?

All vendors will need to bring their own table, linen, and display items. Lighting is inconsistent throughout the building. It is recommended that you bring display lights for your items and an extension cord if you need to access an outlet. Many of the outlets are 2 prong - we recommend having a Prong Converter in case you need one.

What types of vendors are allowed?

We allow all makers, artists, bakers, and creatives to sell their goods at the market (with the exception that alcohol and cannibis products are not allowed to be sold on site). We occasionally allow other small hustles like Color Street, Usborne Books at Home, Young Living, etc to be at the market, but limit the amount we have per event. If your business is an MLM, please email hello@creativeavenuenw.com before registering. Spaces are prioritized for local makers and artists.

Can I share my booth with another vendor?

This is allowed on a case by case basis. Please email hello@creativeavenuenw.com to discuss further. 

What is expected of vendors? The Terms and Conditions:

  • Vendors are expected to be respectful of the space. The building is old and we are not able to nail anything into walls. Please bring display items that can either stand alone or lean against the wall or your table.
  • Vendors are expected to pick up after themselves and keep the space clean. During the event and after the event, vendors are responsible for sweeping and disposing any trash into the appropriate bins.
  • Promote the event! We expect all vendors to regularly share the market info with their following via email and on social media.
  • Vendors are required to be at the market for the entire scheduled open hours. Vendors who breakdown early will be fined $30.
  • Vendors are also not to park directly in front of the building on commercial or next to the building on 19th as we want to keep as much parking available to customers. There is a parking lot located across the street that vendors can park in. Any vendors who park directly next to the building during the market will be fined $30.
  • Vendors are responsible for processing payments independently (you can choose how you accept payments). Note there is not a cash machine on site. 
  • Vendors agree to hold Creative Avenue LLC harmless of any loss or damage occuring at the market. 
  • Vendors are required to wear masks, no exceptions. Creative Avenue LLC is following the state mandates for mask requirements indoors. 
  • Vendors understand that Creative Avenue LLC has the right to decline vendor registration at their discretion. Creative Avenue LLC will email you if that is the case. Reason may be that there are too many similar vendors registered and we are committed to providing a variety of vendors for our shoppers.

Please read through the terms and conditions thoroughly before submitting your vendor registration.
