Am I registered as a Mountain Market vendor? If you receive our Mountain Market email newsletter, then you are registered as a vendor. If you don’t receive our emails, then you probably aren’t registered. Be sure to check your junk mail folder to see if you can find our emails from firstname.lastname@example.org. The first email of the year comes out May 1st.
Do I need to register annually as a vendor? Your Mountain Market vendor registration does not expire.
Which markets do I need to pre-register for? Any Mountain Market event that takes place outside of Rotary Park you must pre-register for. This way we can be sure there will be space for you and your booth. NOT VALID FOR THE 2020 SEASON
How do I pre-register for a Mountain Market event? All registered vendors will receive our Mountain Market newsletter via email. We usually send out one a month during the Mountain Market season (June through September). The newsletter contains all the links to register online for the Market events that take place outside of our usual Rotary Park location. NOT VALID FOR THE 2020 SEASON
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 at the Rotary Park Market. There are many nearby parking areas surrounding Rotary Park that may be used for vendor parking. Some of the pre-registered special Mountain Market events do allow the opportunity to park near your booth, please check with the Market Coordinator on the day to confirm parking options.
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 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 7:45 am to assist vendors.
Can I come to just a couple markets? We are happy to host vendors that would like to attend just a few markets a year or the whole season. Once you are registered as a vendor, you can attend any Rotary Park market that fits your schedule.
This is my first time at your market, where should I set up? A Market Coordinator is onsite at 7:45 am, look for our Mountain Market hats with the lime green mesh and we’ll be glad to give you a hand.
How do I pay the weekly market fees? A Market Coordinator will come around and collect the weekly market fees. This usually takes place in the first hour the market operates. Please note payment is accepted via credit or debit only.
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.
