Starting May 17 and running until Sept 13, Polson Park
Outdoors, 10x10 booths, $45+gst
It's our 4th season! Can you believe it! Time flies when you're having fun. Last year we did 13 Fridays with themes out of a possible 18, and we'll probably have a similar amount this year as well -- like the dog market, fashion show, pride, bike parade, renaissance market, and more.
July 1, Polson Park, Hours TBD
Outdoors, 10x10 booths, $75
Always a great event, lots of folks come down to the park that we don't otherwise see on Fridays, so its a great opportunity to meet new customers and hang out listening to great local music. This year it's on a Monday.
Sept 20/21, Polson Park, Hours TBD
Outdoors, 10x10 booths, $50-friday half day, $80-saturday all day
The third year of Culture Days festivities in Vernon, second year of the Sundog Festival. The Arts Council of the North Okanagan (ACNO) along with a board of volunteers hosts an amazing 2-day festival of music, culture, and events for all ages in Polson Park, and we get to come along! They haven't announced a headliner yet, but there's a healthy budget for one, so it should be a great show!
Warning about 2024 Season: Work will commence on naturalization of the creek in Polson Park, and the flow of traffic in the park will change. The city is working with us to ensure as little disruption to events as possible, but please stay tuned for updates as we figure out what this construction will mean for our load in/out and customer parking options. Thanks!

We love our vendors! We're so excited to promote local makers, businesses and farmers. Here's a couple tips for helping us get to know you:
1. Doing this application may take you 5 minutes, please include full addresses to social media links, and/or photos of your booth and products.
2. Please write a short description of your business, this also helps. Please include products and any noteworthy business history.
3. The way you type your name is how it's going to show up for everything I do, forever, I don't want to get them wrong, so I copy exactly what you've written. Please make sure there are no spelling mistakes, and that you've capitalized when needed. ie. Joe's Handmade Goods instead of joes handmade goods.

Follow the instructions on the setup email (usually sent out 1-2 weeks before an event) for setup details!
We try to give out refunds and credits as much as possible, but we will reserve the right to make our own judgement on refunds when we get into the last 48 hours before a market. A small amount of special events will have their own unique rules, keep an eye out on emails.
Please give us as much notice as you can if you don't think you'll be attending so we can try to find someone to take your spot. We still incur costs weekly for running the market, and we'd like to keep this going and keep it afloat by making sure we have the best possible chance at covering those costs.
Thanks for understanding!
