For Vendors:
2024 Booth Fee Expectations 
In additional to the vendor handbook, the following will be implemented for the upcoming 2024 market season:
We have worked very hard to cut costs and keep your booth fees consistently low for many years. The last time there was a cost increase to the morning market booth fees was prior to 2014, despite rising costs to produce the market over the last decade. Since 2014, costs for security, insurance, traffic control, permitting, software and more have consistently increased. 
What does this mean to you? For 2024, application rates will vary based on the type of product you sell at the market. 
  • Agriculturally-based products (fruits/veggies/herbs, oils, spices/teas, honey, flowers/houseplants, wine/beer/kombucha, CBD products*) will be charged a rate of $40/day for small stalls (15 ft.X15 ft.) and $60 for large stalls (25 ft.X15 ft.) 
  • Arts & craft vendors, prepared foods, toiletries, pet supplies will be charged a rate of $55/day for small stalls (15 ft.X15 ft.) and $75/day for large stalls (25 ft.X15 ft.) 
  • Market After Dark stalls will also increase to $150 for a 25 ft.X25 ft. stall.
