Twin City Market is continually looking to expand and increase the variety and diversity of items offered at the Market. There are three classifications of vendors at the Market. Please see Market Handbook for complete description of all categories:
Permanent Vendors – Vendors who have a permanent booth at the Market and are there each and every week, year-round. Vendors are required to pay for the weekly booth fees and electric fees (if applicable) each and every week, regardless of whether or not they are present on a given week.
Seasonal Vendors (May-October) – Vendors seeking to sell only during the outdoor market season, May through October, are considered Seasonal Vendors. If not participating weekly for the entire season, prospective vendors shall specify which dates they will be attending upon application. Vendors will be assigned a designated space under the Sterling Marketplace Pavilion, which will remain the same for the duration of the season. Vendors are responsible for providing their own tables, chairs, or other display needs. All items shall be set up and removed weekly. Once approved, seasonal vendors will be given first priority for future seasons. Vendors shall provide Sterling Main Street at least 30 days advance notice of their intent to return, along with any specified dates, so that booth assignments can be made. Seasonal vendors are responsible for weekly booth fees for each and every week of the season (or previously specified dates), regardless of whether or not they are present on a given week. Vendors who frequently cancel or no show may be asked not to return for future seasons.
Visitor Vendors – Vendors who do not have a permanent space assigned at the Market, but vend from time to time on such dates as Vendor and the Market Manager agree. An unlimited number of Visitor Vendors may be accommodated during the warmer months and booth space will be assigned outside. Visitor Vendor space is limited during the winter months due to space restraints inside the Market.
All vendors must submit an Application for review and approval before they may set up at the Market, including on Visitor status. Applications are reviewed monthly by the Market’s governing committee, which meets on the 1st Thursday of every other month. Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. TCM reserves the right to limit the number of vendors for each product area to ensure a diverse and sustainable product mix for the Market, with priority given to locally-grown produce and other food-related items.
