THIS IS A BACK-UP VENDOR APP. The event has already been juried, but in the event that a vendor doesn't complete payment for their booth or has to back out, we'll select replacement vendors from the back-up applications!
THE HOLIDAY SWING will be open to the public Nov. 25-27, Dec. 3-4, Dec 10-11, and Dec. 17-18. Hours of operation will be from 10am to 5pm all market days. Admission is free for guests.
ALL BOOTHS ARE OUTDOOR BOOTHS and will be approximately 10 x 10 feet. White tents are required. We do have tents available to rent for $50/day. Booths will either be under the glass sheds of the Farmer's Market at City Market of under the shed without glass doors. We do not provide tables/chairs. There will be power available for vendors. Only propane heaters are allowed. VENDORS WHO PARTICIPATE IN MORE THAN ONE WEEKEND WILL HAVE FIRST PRIORITY IN THE TWO SHEDS WITH LOCKING DOORS. One row of sheds does not have locking doors, but it does have power. There will be security overnight.
You will be able to leave your booth set up over night(s). If you are selected to participate ALL FOUR WEEKENDS or 2 weekends in a row, you will be able to leave your booth set up in our secured and closed sheds (the glass doors of the sheds will be dropped at night and locked) for the entirety of the event. We will have security overnight.
<<< MAKER MUST BE PRESENT AT EVENT>>>
ONLY HANDMADE/DESIGNED ITEMS AND VINTAGE ITEMS ARE ACCEPTABLE. No direct sales items are allowed.
We will be following the rules and regulations of City Market and The City of Kansas City Missouri Health Department regarding Covid-19. If we have to cancel or postone the event, your booth fee will be credited to our next in person event.
This event is juried. We, along with our trusted jury, will review each application and take a variety of items into consideration when choosing our vendors. We are looking for quality handmade items, a cohesive brand, great photographs of your items so we can see what you make, innovative items, etc. Application fees cover this jurying process and are NON-REFUNDABLE.
Thank you for being so wildly creative! We can't wait to see what you have in store for us at Kansas City's top handmade holiday shopping destination, The Holiday Swing at Merry Market.
Applications close Monday, September 26th at 11:59. The jury will deliberate and send out vendor acceptance emails by October 3rd at 11:59 pm.
