Frequently Asked Questions

A few things you might want to know

Pre-sale tickets are opened for a limited time.  To stay informed of upcoming events and vendor opportunities register for our newsletter updates below or email [email protected]

Why is there an entrance fee?

We’ve spent 9 years building a community that values and supports small businesses. 

Every year as our community grows, our message becomes stronger and our reach becomes larger.

Renting a venue for one day – including event insurance and staffing fees – becomes quite costly.  We charge a small $5 entrance fee to help cover those costs and ensure that we can continue growing this incredible community of makers and shoppers in the years to come!

The markets provide a place for shoppers to meet small business owners in real life.  They also allow shoppers to save on shipping costs, reducing our environmental footprint. We also do not charge our shoppers a buying fee like brick and mortar stores do. 

Do participating businesses only take cash?

Most businesses take almost all forms of payment, but it’s best to double check with them ahead of time if you’re specifically coming for that special item of theirs.

If I buy pre-sale tickets do I have to wait in line?


We will have a separate line for pre sale ticket holders

What time does the lineup start?

The line up starts approx. 45 mins before the show.

Do you offer a seniors discount

No, sorry we don’t.

Is this a kid-friendly/stroller-friendly space?

Yes absolutely!  Bring the whole family!

Is there free parking?
