Market Day: Saturday March 14, 2020 Time: 9am-2pm Location: Hamilton County Fairgrounds- Llama Barn.
When can I set up? Vendors will have the option of setting up on Friday or Saturday. Friday 3/13 set up times to be announced Saturday 3/14 7am- 8:45am…. Market will open at 9am. We prefer vendors set up on Friday evening but we understand that schedules and distance might not allow for it.
How are the vendors selected? Our vision for this market is to have booth after booth of amazingly unique items that you can’t find at the local brick and mortar stores. We are looking for fresh and fun products and displays! Also, we are interested in a cohesive design that works well with your brand! We will have a jury review all of the applications submitted to ensure the best show possible!
How many shoppers can I expect? We are thrilled with the success of our last show. Our attendance clicker stopped at just over 1300 shoppers! We have a detailed advertising plan set up to draw as many shoppers as possible! Our goal is to make every market bigger and better than the last!!
How long will you be accepting applications? Since all applications will be juried, we don’t have a set deadline of when applications will close or when they will be approved. Approved vendors will be notified by email and payment needs to be sent in as soon as your application has been accepted by the market. Booth spaces will only be reserved once payment has been received. Once your spot is finalized, booth fees will become non-refundable. The application time can close at any moment without notice.
What size are the booths? How much do they cost? We have 1 booth size: 10×10’ – $85 Vendors will be able to purchase more than 1 booth- must note this on application. The Indy MADE market provides the venue, you bring everything you need for your booth. You’re responsible for setting up and tearing down your booths. Our vendor fee includes 5 sale hours and local advertisements including flyers and signs. We will also have social media advertisements on Facebook, Instagram, and twitter! There will be access to a few tables and will be given on a first come, first serve basis to shops as we receive your payment and registration. There will be plenty of folding chairs for everyone, so feel free to use those.
Can I share a booth with my friend? We aren’t allowing people to share booths. We want each booth to have a cohesive look tailored to your brand!
How should I display my items? We want each booth to look professional and inviting. The most inviting displays are creative and allow room for the customers to easily move around and see everything. Tables are definitely not required. Be creative! Make your space a place where people are intrigued to enter. Experience is not necessary. If you’ve never participated in another market before, we’d still love to have you!
Do I need to be at my booth the whole time? How does checkout work? Yes! It is important that you are at your booth to handle all questions and purchases. We do not have a central checkout. You can decide what forms of payment you will accept.
Can I have a booth helper? Absolutely! We will have 2 vendor passes per booth. If you have a need for additional helpers please contact us to make arrangements .
Can I trade spaces with another vendor? No. We will be giving brochures to each shopper indicating the location of each vendor booth. You will need to stay in the spot assigned to you to not bring confusion to the shoppers.
Will I have access to electricity? We have very limited access to electricity. If you need electricity please bring power cords and tape for the floor to follow safety requirements.. We will not provide power cords or tape. Make sure to indicate this need on your application, and acknowledge the extra costs associated, so we can make sure you are located near a power source.
Is there a public restroom? Yes. They are located just outside of the building. We will have signs to lead the way!
Can I bring food & beverages? Yes, you may bring food and beverages with you. We will have a drink and snack booth set up at the market. We will post a list of what will be available when we get closer to the event.
How can you help? We really want this event to be successful. In order for that to happen, we need for all vendors to help spread the word about the Indy MADE Market through their website, social media, etc.
We will be adding more information as it is finalized.
