Our 2022 Manakin Market Holiday Farm & Craft Market will be held at the same site as our seasonal market, under cover of two large marque tents. You may chose to bring your own tent with sides so that you have protection from wind and/or rain if your stall is located outside the marque. The marquees will be filled on a first come, first served basis, and Market Management will inform vendors where their stall is assigned to. The market will be held rain or shine. If vendors should instead choose to vend outside of the perimeter of the marquee, all canopies, umbrellas, and other forms of stall cover must be sufficiently and safely secured to the ground, from the moment the canopy is erected at the start of the market day until the moment immediately before it is taken down at the end of the market. If tents are inadequately secured, market management will ask the farmer/grower/producer to take it down and sell without it.
