Concession Vendor – Concession vendors are permitted to sell single-serving, ready-to-consume food and drink items. The menus of each concession vendor must be reviewed in order to ensure there is product variety. APPLY HERE

Busker – Buskers perform at the market and are compensated by way of financial contributions by customers. The most common type of busker at our market is a musician who leaves a container out for tips. Buskers are rotated throughout the market and not in a permanent location. APPLY HERE

Non-Profit Vendor – Non-profit vendors are registered organizations that want to spread awareness about their cause at our market. They must have a valid registration number and are not permitted to sell anything. These vendors do not have to pay to take part and can apply to be at a maximum of three markets. APPLY HERE
