VENUECypress & Grove Brewing Company, 1001 NW 4th Street, Gainesville, FL 32601. All vendor spaces will be outdoor booths in the brewery parking lot, green space, and/or along the rail trail, so please plan accordingly and bring a pop-up tent and weights. 

TABLES / BOOTHS: Craft vendors may apply for an outdoor 10′ x 10′ booth space ($135). We will not offer indoor tables at this show. Vendors may bring their own pop-up tent, no greater than 10′ x 10′. All tents must be anchored securely. We provide one 8′ table, for convenience. Vendors may bring additional table(s) or displays that fit within the allotted space. Limited spaces are available

SELECTION CRITERIA: We always receive more applications than we can accept. Please know that we work hard to strike the right balance of vendors for our shoppers. We favor vendors who make unique, handmade, giftable items that are fresh and unexpected, or even edgy and quirky. We also accept vendors who sell vintage items. However, we do not accept vendors who resell items made entirely by someone else (e.g., imported or wholesale items). To be clear, it’s okay to buy mass-produced T-shirts and screenprint them with your own designs. It’s not okay to buy jewelry or clothing that’s handmade in another country and sell it as your own work. If you think there is any grey area with what you make/sell, be sure to address this on your application. We also limit the number of vendors who sell within a single category (e.g., jewelry and soaps/bath/beauty)

NOTIFICATION: All applicants will be notified of their status by Wednesday, March 1 at 11:59 p.m., if not before.

VENDOR FEE: If you are accepted, the producer will retain the vendor fee that you paid. If you are not accepted, the producer will return your payment by Wednesday, March 1.
