6. DESCRIPTION OF MERCHANDISE:
All aspects or your intended salable merchandise need to be generally addressed on this application form. Since we want to showcase an array of different items, vendors are chosen specifically based upon their applications.

Booth presentation is extremely important for this event. Presentation sets the tone of a market, and we want to exemplify quality, uniqueness and value. Plainly put, we intend for this show to be the show shoppers talk about & want to return to, again & again. It is expected that each vendor will have the proper displays and will maintain a clean, organized and professional looking booth.
9. FOOD HANDLING & REQUIREMENTS:
Any vendors that are cooking on premisses will need to provide insurance in advance.
Vendors are responsible for all utensils, napkins, etc. needed for their items, as well as cleanup and trash removal.
Vendors that are not cooking food on premisses are expected to meet safety standards and follow cottage law requirements. It is the responsibility of vendors to take these actions; the organizers of Margate Under The Moon & the venue are in no way responsible for, nor do they have control over vendor's products.
Vendors cannot sell items that contain false or unproven claims.
We base our decisions not only on quality, but also how many vendors have similar items. We will strive to maintain a sense of exclusivity on certain products, and limit the amount of vendors in each category.
Please be patient as it may take us some time to get through our vendor applications. Applications are processed on a first come, first served basis.
If you operate a brick and mortar business that is based within the city limits of Margate, FL., and you do not intend to sell products or merchandise at Margate Under the Moon, you may qualify for a reduced fee placement within the Margate business pavilion. Please note whether you are Margate based, on your application.
Thank you for your interest! Hope to see you at the show!
