Lancaster East Side Market supports small, local farm and food-related businesses. In selecting vendors, priority is given to local farmers, growers, producers, and prepared food businesses that source ingredients locally. We also host several Arts Markets events during the year to support local crafters and artists. New for 2019, we will host several Flea Markets during the season. Lancaster East Side Market understands the evolving needs of small businesses and encourages, but does not require, a commitment to all 18 weeks of market. Community groups and non-profits are welcome at market, and can attend up to 3 weeks in the season with no vendor fee if they are not selling anything.
2019 Vendor Application Terms:
The vendor fee is $320 for the full season, which is $15 per week plus a $50 refundable deposit that will be returned at season's end if the vendor contract has been upheld. A vendor space is 10 ft x 10 ft and location priority is given to full season vendors. You will need to provide your own tent and tables each week. Tents must be staked down and/or weighted. Vendors should plan to promote their attendance at market through their usual channels (social media, flyers at other events, email newsletters, etc) and must provide a vendor bio. If accepted as a vendor, we will finalize the weeks you will attend and send an invoice for your market fees. Vendors will receive a 10% discount on market fees if fees are paid in full by May 1, 2019.
**Vendors are required to have a general liability insurance policy, and food vendors must meet Lancaster City requirements.** Please contact Health Officer Kim Wissler for details at 717-291-4714 or KWissler@cityoflancasterpa.com. As a courtesy to the market organizers we ask that two weeks' notice is given if you cannot be at market on a particular Sunday so that we can fill the space. No call no shows will result in the forfeiture of your vendor deposit and can lead to termination of your vendor contract. By "signing" below, you agree to these terms.
Please email email@example.com with any questions.
Thank you! We look forward to a wonderful season!
