These are the rules and regulations for the 2017, Downtown Market. All vendors should read it carefully. This is the only market site selling crafts and prepared foods for 2017.
New for the 2017 season, this weekday market will be held at the Rio Grande Farm Park (former Healthy Living Park site) and vendors will be selling produce only.
Starting with the 2015 season all vendors that use canopies and tents for their booth space will be required to have 40 pound tent weights on each corner of their canopy/ tent. The back of the canopy/ tent may be attached to the vendors vehicle in some cases.
The Market operates for 15 Saturdays beginning in July and ending in October. Market hours are 8a to 1p, Saturdays in July and August and 9a to 1p in September and October. Vendors are expected to remain on-site for the entire 5 hour market day.
The booth fee is $13 for space for a 10 foot space. There are discounts for those who pay for the entire season. In addition the Market collects a 3% commission on total sales to support the Market’s operation. Electricity is available for $5 per day.
The Market acquires annual City, County and State Sales Tax Licenses and is required to collect appropriate taxes based on the vendor’s total sales for the day unless the vendor has obtained their own sales tax licenses and pays their own taxes. The Market pays all taxes collected to the appropriate authorities each month.
During the market day the Site-Manager will collect the booth fee.
