Can I get a shady spot? There are many trees in Rotary Park that provide some shade. We recommend designing your table set up within your booth to maximize shade for your products and your customers. The sun changes throughout the day and if you are selling heat sensitive products, you may need to adapt your set up throughout the day as the sun moves across the sky. There is shade available in both the seasonal reserved area and the first come first serve area.
Can you rent me a tent or table to use? All vendors must provide their own setup, and we recommend you come prepared for all the elements that our beautiful mountain setting can send our way.
Can I park my car by my booth? Vehicles may not be parked on the grass to vend out of. The seasonal vendors area along the tree line does provide options for parking behind your booth. There are many nearby parking areas surrounding Rotary Park that may be used for vendor parking.
Can I get the same spot each week? Spaces are “first come, first serve”, except for our new reserved area (the treed area along the side of the alley) for season-long vendors. Learn more about the new reserved area here
Can I sell Tupperware or Norwex or other similar products? The Mountain Market is a farmer and artisan market. If you make it, bake it or grow it – we would love to have you join us.
Can I sell food at the Market? All vendors selling food must comply with the Guidelines for the Sale of Foods at Temporary Food Markets. We highly recommend being FoodSafe or MarketSafe certified. Check out our food vendor guidelines to ensure you qualify to sell at the Mountain Market.

Can I sell alcohol at the Market? At this point, we do not allow alcohol sales.
Can I leave early? The market runs from 10 am till 2 pm. Vendors are expected to operate fully throughout this time period. If you cannot stay for the entire market period, then it is best to not attend. Vendors must be set up and ready to go for 9:30 am, late vendors will not be allowed to set up. There will be a Market Manager on site at 8 am to assist vendors.
Can I come to just a couple markets or do I need to sign up for the whole season? We are happy to host vendors that would like to attend just a few markets a year or the whole season.
This is my first time at your market, where should I set up? A Market Coordinator is onsite one hour before the market opens, just ask another vendor to pick us out from the crowd and we’ll be glad to give you a hand.
Can I just show up and vend? You must register to be to vend at any of the Mountain Market events. If you receive Mountain Market eNewsletters via email from us, that means you are registered as a vendor. If you’d like to join us, please contact us first and we will let you know if there is a need for the products or services you offer.
