Applications will not be juried without payment. In order to be juried for Market Days, you must pay the application fee and either make full payment for your space or no less than a $100.00 deposit. If you are not accepted, your space, camping, table fee will be returned to you. If you are accepted to the show and only paid the $100 deposit, the balance of your fee will be due no later than July 31, 2019. The committee will assign all spaces and honor any space request, whenever possible, based on availability.
Categories: Our jury is broken down into categories, i.e., jewelry, woodcraft, food, wearable art, etc. If you have more than 1 product in your booth, you must list your products. Due to the number of applications we receive for the jewelry category, if you have jewelry of any kind in your booth, jewelry is the category in which you will be juried. Example: If your primary product is woodcraft and you also make jewelry to sell, your jewelry will take precedence and you will be juried in the jewelry category.
Artists and craftsmen must submit at least three (3) high resolution digital images of their current work via e-mail, CD, or photographs. Also, you should submit 1 image of you making your product and copies of two current receipts where you purchased materials to make your product. To be considered for use in the newspaper advertisement, it is important that images be of excellent quality, in good condition, and representative of work you will sell. CDs must be labeled with your name. Pictures and CD’s will become part of the Market Days archives.
