2020 La Salle Christkindlmarket Vendor Application
2020 Market Dates: Friday 12/4 Saturday 12/5 and Sunday 12/6

Thank you for your interest in our 4th Annual Christkindlmarket! We've expanded our market hours for 2020 to include Friday evening. The organizers of this event feel this will attract more shoppers, diners and patrons to our (now) 3-day event. With the success of the 2017, 2018, and 2019 market and the help of our vendor and shopper feedback, we have expanded the market to include more vendors, huts and food options for 2020!

Due to the number of vendor huts available (there are 11), the selection committee will be collecting and reviewing the Vendor Applications and will contact the eleven (11) accepted vendors by early October with one (1) backup vendor. If vendors selected are willing to share a hut, the committee may select more than (11) vendors. The market’s goal is to provide shoppers with unique, high-quality, seasonal and gift-able items that are not normally found in the area. The huts are approximately 10’ wide by 7’ deep with a lockable man door and a closeable sales window in front. A 2’ shelf will be installed directly behind sales window opening for display. Other displays are the responsibility of the vendor.
