Depending on the number of artists, set-up times may be assigned. If this is the case, artists will be notified of their set-up time via email. No cars are allowed in Market area after 7:50am and all existing cars must be moved by 8:00am to all for center row to set up. Artists must stay for the ENTIRE market. Early take-down may result in ineligibility for future markets. Artists may begin taking down at 2pm and must be out of the market no later than 3pm.

Artists are responsible for providing their own displays. Equipment may include tables, chairs, tents, and any other display necessities. Artists are also responsible for the set up and take down of displays and clean-up of booth space at the conclusion of the market. Financial transaction methods are the responsibility of the artist.

Upon arriving at the market, artists should locate assigned booth space, park close to the curb and unload items to the side. Once items are unloaded (prior to setting up), move vehicle to Root House parking lot. Once your vehicle has been cleared from market area, you may set-up. At the conclusion of the market, artists need to first tear down and pack up items, then retrieve vehicle for loading. Failure to follow these procedures creates congestion, confusion, and frustration among artists. Artists in the center aisle are last to set-up and first to bring vehicles in to pack up.


RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SUCCESS
1. Display a wide price range of items. Feature a variety of price-points, maximizing your profits.
2. Engage in social media in order to attract more visitors. Facebook and Twitter are great forums. Connect with us at www.facebook.com/MariettaSquareArtisanMarket
