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 300 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!
If you need to know sooner, please reach out to us personally via email

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! With Milk Mart's Pick-a-Spot feature, you are able to pay to select which place on the map you'd like to be. If you don't need a specific space, but would just like to be next to a friend, email us ASAP to let us know, or denote it on your application; we do our best to accommodate putting friends next to each other!
Is power available?
Power is only available under very special requests, for an additional fee. Power will not be provided for lights, fans, heaters, etc, but can be provided on a case-by-case basis for specialty setups like live printing.
If a vendor is seen plugging in any unapproved devices, they will immediately be charged a $500 fee to the card we have on file.
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 furniture will be provided; vendors are required to bring all their own displays, tables, chairs, tents, etc!
When will I receive the map/day-of details?
The map is sent out the week of the event; this can sometimes be as late as 3 days prior. Mapping an event this large properly takes time!
Someone who isn't Ashley Hallenbeck contacted
me about available Milk Mart spots; can I trust them?
No! The only person you should EVER talk to about Milk Mart is Ashley Hallenbeck, via the official Milk Mart pages on Instagram and Facebook (@milkmartorlando), or her email address, Ashley@ASHLEYASDFGH.com. No one else is authorized to sell spaces or take money on behalf of the event. Don't get scammed! And if you aren't sure; DM the Milk Mart (@milkmartorlando) Instagram page or email Ashley at Ashley@ASHLEYASDFGH.com.
I've sold out of product, can I leave early?
No, all vendors are required to remain set up for the duration of the event, even if you sell out. This is to ensure that the event remains full the whole time, and doesn't confuse other vendors or guests who may see a vendor leaving and think the event is ending early! But, more importantly, it is a safety precaution, so we don't have any large furniture moving or cars on the lot while guests are present.
Milk Mart is made possible by the collaborative efforts of
The Milk District Main Street
, the businesses therein, and guests and vendors like you. See you real soon!
