CHANGES EFFECTING RED GREEN MARKET
ON NOV. 17 ARE HIGHLIGHTED IN BOLD GREEN.
**Sentences striked through are not a requirement for Nov. 17.**
Welcome to Green Market 2018 – Celebrating 10 Seasons!
Vendors should read all guidelines carefully.
Note all 2018 changes and additions are highlighted in BOLD RED.
THIS IS A LIVING DOCUMENT AND CAN CHANGE AT ANYTIME.
1) VENDOR NOTES
A) In addition to vendors who sell handcrafted and homemade items, independent consultants and boutiques are also allowed to sell at market once approved by the Green Market committee.
**ALL VENDORS, REGARDLESS OF TYPE OF ITEMS SOLD, WILL BE VETTED AS NORMAL. BEFORE BEING APPROVED TO SELL AT MARKET, VENDORS AND ITEMS SOLD BY VENDOR WILL BE CAREFULLY REVIEWED TO ENSURE THE QUALITY OF ALL ITEMS SOLD AT MARKET REMAINS OF THE HIGHEST STANDARDS.
TYPES OF VENDORS ALLOWED:
- HANDCRAFTED/HANDMADE/HOMEGROWN VENDORS: Items can be either completely handcrafted or partially (90 percent) handcrafted. Any items that do not meet these standards are subject to not being approved at the discretion of the Green Market committee. All items should demonstrate skill and mastery of the medium. On-site demonstration is strongly encouraged.
- INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS: Those representatives who sell QUALITY items on behalf of a well known company.
- BOUTIQUES: Vendors who either own a retail business, either brick and mortar or online, and sell QUALITY items.
Unacceptable items for Red Green Market on Nov. 17 include but are not limited to: yard sale items, flea market items, any item deemed not of highest quality by Green Market committee.
Unacceptable items include SCREEN PRINTED ITEMS OF ANY KIND, silk floral, mass produced items, direct buy/resell items, independent sales, imported or manufactured goods, wholesale merchandise, professional/industrial machine made items, melt and pour soaps or candles, Cricut/vinyl/heat transfer items and any item which can not be deemed at least 90 percent handcrafted.
Anyone can be denied as a vendor for any reason at the discretion of the Green Market committee.
C) Applications will ONLY be accepted online at corinthgreenmarket.com. No paper applications will be available or accepted.
D) Vendors must apply online for an opportunity to sell at market. Applications are received and reviewed. If approved to be a vendor, you will receive a invoice to pay via email. Only online payments are accepted. If not approved, you will receive a email listing the reason(s). Green Market committee reserves the right to reject any application for any reason. There are no paper applications. All vendors must apply and pay online.
Vendors are not guaranteed a space until payment has been received. The committee is not responsible for ensuring vendors pay fee before deadline (4 p.m. Thursday prior to market weekend). In some cases, other arrangements to apply or pay can be made. Please explain on application.
The Green Market will use quotas in the various categories to avoid any category from outweighing others. This results in denial of opportunities to sell to many good vendors, but it provides a better event for the participants and buying public.
Categories maxed out and no longer being accepted for season or individual markets:
None at this time
Vendors who sell 90 percent fresh produce, plants, flowers or other agriculture may be allowed to setup at market for free, but are still required to apply as a vendor below.
Authors are welcome.
Non-profit groups may purchase vendor space at half price. Proof of non-profit status is required.
No more than 5 on-site food vendors/food trucks are allowed per market. Food vendors should also submit menu and photos during application process via file upload.
Vendors who sell packaged food or baked goods (jams, jellies, breads, cookies, etc.) must follow the Mississippi Cottage Law.
E) Photos and detailed information play a major role in our selection. A photograph should be submitted for each different type of item. Only those items approved may be sold by the vendor. Please list all items with full description of each,
noting materials used and the method of handcrafting you plan to sell at market. Each vendor should exhibit only three main crafts (craft categories or types of crafts) in their vendor space. All vendors must only sell items entered and approved on application.
Green Market is an opportunity for vendors to sell their current items, not an order taking opportunity.
2) SPACE AVAILABILITY
Vendor spaces are limited to 75-10×10 spaces in the garden and 5-10×10 spaces on the pavement.
DUE TO HOLIDAY DECORATIONS IN THE CARE GARDEN, vendor spaces on the garden/grass area CAN NOT be guaranteed for Red Green Market on Nov. 17. Please be prepared to setup on the pavement (parking lot/city street). In case of wind/weather, don’t forget weights for tent.
B) Space assignments are at the discretion of the Green Market committee and vendors will need to be flexible if adjustments are necessary. Season sellers will be contacted for space preference.
C) A courtesy call or email is required from all season and monthly vendors if you are unable to attend so your space maybe reassigned for that market.
D) Market layout and vendor space assignments will be released Friday by 2 p.m., one day prior to market. Vendor spaces are marked with numbers in the garden on Friday. No setups prior to market day.
3) DAY OF MARKET
A) Vendor set-up time begins at 6:30 a.m. day of market. Vehicles must be unloaded and moved as soon as possible from the unloading/parking lot area.
Vehicles should be unloaded and moved from main parking lot 30 minutes prior to market start time. Free parking is available street side and in nearby lots. Customers appreciate vendors who stay all day, as some of the best shopping occurs in the last hour.
B) Vendor tax sheets will be provided the morning of each market. Sellers must turn in sales tax and sales tax sheet at end of the day to the Crossroads Museum gift shop.
C) Green Market is a non-smoking event.
D) Vendors are responsible for providing their own tables, chairs, tents, canopies, etc.
E) Electricity is not offered or allowed for any reason. Generators are also not allowed. Some food vendors are the exception. Please explain on application.
F) No vendor space may interfere with any other vendor space. Aisles should remain clear. All sellers should leave their space free of trash and debris at all times.
