Welcome to the brand-new Artisan Market at the Mills! We are thrilled to bring this event to the North Andover community.
Guidelines and Information:The first Artisan Market will take place on the opening day of the North Andover Farmers Market (Father's Day, June 17th) between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM. Thereafter through September, the Artisan Market will be held on the second to last Sunday of the month (July 22nd, August 19th and September 23rd). The parking lot will open at 8:30 AM for set-up. Vendors should be ready to go by 9:45 AM. This is a rain or shine event.
The market will be juried. Don’t let the term scare you … simply put, our Jury consists of 3 basic criteria:1.) Did you create it? All items displayed must be your own hand-made work. 2.) Is it well made? Only top quality work is allowed, no kits or mass-produced pieces.3.) Do we think it will sell well at our shows? We are looking for quality, American-made works by hand.If the answer to all 3 is yes, then you are welcome to apply. We will limit the number of vendors in each category. Each artisan will be limited to participating in up to two markets so that we can keep the offerings fresh and give many people a chance to participate. If there is space available, we will consider adjusting this policy.
The market will take place in Parking Lot E, behind the West Mill on High St., just a short walk from First and Main where the Farmers Market is held. The space abuts Sutton Pond, creating a serene and picturesque backdrop for the market. All spaces are 10'X10'. You must provide your own tent and weights, in case of wind. Electricity will not be available. You will be required to provide your own tables, chairs and displays. All tables must be covered to the floor with no boxes or bins visible. This is a carry in, carry out event. Your space must be free of any trash or debris. The space fee is $40 per week. Once registered, all spaces are non-refundable unless we can find a replacement. Payments are due once you are accepted to the market.
The North Andover Farmers Market and RCG assumes no responsibility for any property or goods of the vendor. It is the vendor's responsibility to collect and pay any applicable sales tax.
In addition to being advertised along with the North Andover Farmers Market, the Artisan Market at the Mills will be promoted on Facebook and through an event webpage. We hope to have other Mills businesses participate and offer activities and specials during the market to draw crowds. Although we are excited about these events and feel that they will be well received, as it is a first-time event, we cannot guarantee any specific attendance numbers. We ask that you help promote the markets on your Facebook page and through any other social media outlets.
Application deadline is April 25th. All decisions will be made by May 1st. Applications will continue to be accepted after April 25th if there is still available space. Questions can be emailed to email@example.com.
Thank you to our sponsors, RCG and the East and West Mills.
