Our market celebrates our community’s diversity, cultural assets, and
friendly downtown environment. We want our vendors to feel a part of
our community, and we encourage you to support other vendors. We expect a
high-quality customer experience for our customers. Vendors who talk to
their customers with a smile create a welcoming market ambiance. Be
courteous. Any verbal abuse by a vendor toward another vendor, the
public, or the Market Manager is not tolerated and is cause for
immediate expulsion. Show pride in your products and your unique
background through your booth display.
