MILK MART FAQ
How do I vend at Milk Mart?
Milk Mart prides itself in curating a unique, varied array of artists, makers, small businesses, demos, activities, and more at it's events; if any of those sound like you, then we want to hear from ya! Our event applications go up a few times a year, and can always be found at the bottom of the event on Facebook, as well as on our website (

When will I know if I was accepted?
On average, we receive over 150 applications to our events-- which is both incredibly exciting, AND incredibly time consuming! You can generally expect to hear back no later than one month before the event. If you apply less than one month before the event, you can expect to hear back no later than one week before the event.
If you haven't heard back, please check your Spam or Promotional folders in your email. We utilize MailChimp to streamline our communications; it's imperative that you add my email address (Ashley@ASHLEYASDFGH.com) to your contacts to ensure that you receive them!

How big are the vendor spaces?
We have two different sizes for our spaces; 10'x10' spaces with no coverage that require a tent, and sidewalk spaces that average about 4' deep and 8' long under the building's awning, which do not require a tent. On the application, you get to pick which type of space you'd prefer, or if you have no preference! Then, when the map goes out the week before the event, you'll be alerted as to which type of space you've been selected for.
Can I request a certain spot?
Yes! We do our best to accommodate everyone's request to be placed in a certain spot, or next to another vendor who they're friends with, etc. However, we can only do this if we receive the information before the map goes out; after that, it's too late! If you have a special request, be sure to send it in as soon as you pay!
Is power available?
We are able to provide power for an additional $20 fee. However, please keep in mind that the event happens during daylight hours; so it is unlikely you're going to need lights! During the winter months, the sun does go down earlier, meaning you might like to have lights for the last half hour or hour of the event. For this, we recommend spending that $20 fee on some nice camping lights instead!
Do you allow booth sharing?
Yes; in fact, we encourage it! If you are unable to afford the full booth fee, don't feel you could fill an entire tent space, or just want to share the fun with your best pal, you're more than welcome to, as long as you can fit it all in a 10x10 space! Just remember to denote this on the application form.
Is furniture provided?
No, no furniture will be provided; vendors are required to bring all their own displays, tables, chairs, tents, etc!
