Happy New Year! Thank you for your interest in vending with Frida Friday ATX.
FEB. 2019 FRIDA FRIDAY ATX marketplace will take place at Tamale House on 2/8. Market hours will be shortened to 6-9pm due to the anticipated colder weather. If we need to reschedule the market till later in the month (due to weather), we will plan it for the following Friday.
We apologize for getting this application out late for our Feb market. Because of concerns over weather we debated wether we should wait on holding a market till March, but have had overwhelming demand for the market, so we are proceeding with shortened hours for the month of Feb. Applications are due 1/24 at midnight and we will get back to you on 1/25 to confirm your spot. Reservation fee will be due within 48 hours of application acceptance notification but please contact us if you need to make any arrangements. After that date spaces will only be filled on a space available basis, and will be based on whatever mediums categories are not already taken.
Per usual, our magical Frida-inspired mercado, will continue to feature an artisan market full of one-of-a kind merchandise, fresh local food, musical guests y mas.
Frida Friday ATX is a movement for gender and economic justice. We do this by creating local marketplaces and cultural spaces that promote and connect WOC while creating spaces that are culturally rich and diverse. Frida Friday ATX’s regular monthly market is a WOC-centered marketplace. Although everyone is welcomed and encouraged to attend, our mercado is specifically intended to amplify and connect self-identified Womyn of Color, and showcase our creative work. Preference is given to •handmade by the artist • vendors*. Thank you for your support in growing an alternative economic space for WOC!
We do our best to curate a strong market, so please know if you are NOT accepted this month, we encourage you to apply again, it may be that we are full for your medium but will have an opening the next month!
A few things to keep in mind: — We aim to have only 4-5 vendor spaces open PER MEDIUM, so please keep this in mind when applying. If you make jewelry for the event, you will be considered applying in the jewelry category. We are working hardto create a space that amplifies and supports WOC artisans in this community and appreciate your engagement in doing this! —Please note, we do NOT accept any resale (with the exception of vintage and select fair trade*** ), as this market is intended to really promote handmade artisans. We support local HANDMADE artisans who are present to sell their own wares. * Please contact us if you are interested in vending handmade, resale products for booth pricing and accommodations, when we make exceptions for these categories we do have a pricing grid we use — To ensure successful marketplaces, we ask that all artists' involved share and promote this event to ensure the widest range of attendees. — Once you have completed your application, please email 4-5 images of your work (including a sample of what you may be creating for the event), to firstname.lastname@example.org, SUBJECT LINE: Tamale House/ September Frida Friday ATX. Applications received without images will automatically not be accepted. Please make sure to send high quality images if you'd like to be promoted across our platforms.
