INFO & APPLICATION FOR
FOOD VENDORS/FOOD TRUCKS
(This form is ONLY for food trucks and food/snack vendors. If you are not selling food, please follow this link to apply to participate)
The Louisville Art and Craft Market is a one-of-a-kind event, combining a wide array of artists, craftspeople and collectors with food trucks, live music, films, workshops, and local craft beer; taking place in the centrally-located Highlands neighborhood of Louisville, KY. The Market is a juried event and we select vendors based on our subjective evaluation as to whether the applicants' wares are a good fit. There is free general admission to the public.
DATES & TIMES:
Saturday, September 22nd, 2018, 11am - 6 pm
Sunday, September 23rd, 11am - 5 pm
Highlands Community Campus - 1228 E Breckinridge St. - Louisville, KY 40204
SELECTION PROCESS FOR FOOD TRUCKS:
We let in a limited number of food vendors for each event, trying to make sure we strike a balance between enough variety of choices for patrons, and few enough food trucks so that all food vendors have the opportunity to make enough money for their hard work. If you know you want to vend at an event, please sign up early as this will improve your chances of being selected to participate. However, signing up early does not guarantee that you will be selected to participate as we also weigh such things as seniority, type of food, and making sure we give everyone (like new vendors) a chance to be rotated into the lineup. If you have signed up we will let you know no less than two weeks out whether or not you have been selected to participate and for which days. We hope that we eventually become so busy with patrons that we can say yes to everybody!
We reserve the right to prohibit the exhibition or sale of any items that may be deemed offensive or threatening to our patrons, vendors, and/or staff. This may include, but is not limited to, products or images that are perceived to alienate a certain group based on race, gender, or sexual orientation. If you have something to exhibit or sell about which you are uncertain, please call Nathan to discuss. (502-552-0061).
Snack Vendors - $40 base fee, plus 10% of gross sales over $400 (per day).
Food Vendors - $60 base fee, plus 10% of gross sales over $600 (per day).
Above fees are just for a space; no tables, chairs, or canopies are included (though you can rent them from us; see below).
SET UP TIMES:
8:00 am on Saturday (vehicles not allowed onsite after 10:45am)
9:00 am on Sunday (vehicles not allowed onsite after 10:45)
Note: Please watch for an email the week preceding the market for any last minute changes.
Vendors should try to be set up by 11am and are required to be open the entirety of scheduled market hours (unless other plans are made with Nathan prior to the event).
VENDOR SPACE ASSIGNMENT:
Vendors will be given a limited choice of spaces. We do not work strictly on a first come, first served basis as there are many limiting factors, e.g. day/s you are vending, reserved corner spots, whether you have a 10x10 or 8x8 space, etc. - We will try to accommodate special requests for spaces, however special requests ARE NOT guaranteed.
After you are shown to a spot, please unload your vehicle/s before setting up your tent or any part of the booth. Please just promptly unload all of your things out of your vehicle then immediately move your VEHICLE OUT OF THE MARKET AREA.
Please park vehicles in the government building lot which lies to the north across Breckinridge St. This allows street parking for patrons and neighbors. (If you need to park closer due to health reasons, street parking is fine.) VEHICLES ARE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN FROM ENTERING THE MARKET AREA DURING MARKET HOURS.
Canopies/tents are not required, but if using one, it must fit within your boothspace and must be weighed down to keep it from flying away and injuring people or damaging property. (One gallon water jugs tied to canopy legs work well.)
MULTI-DAY VENDORS AND SECURITY:
We will have security on site overnight, so multi-day vendors can leave their set-up overnight. That said, we cannot be held accountable for damage due to weather so please secure your wares and canopies for wind and inclement weather.
We will communicate with you primarily through email. Please check your email, especially the week preceding the market. This being said, if you would prefer to discuss something over the phone, feel free to call Nathan (502-552-0061).
We collect money on site the day of the event at closing time. You can pay using cash or check.
If vendor decides to cancel PLEASE LET US KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
WEATHER AND RAIN DATES:
This event is planned as a rain-or-shine event. That said, if the weather looks like it is going to be dangerous or just terrible, we will more-than-likely cancel. We may reschedule the event.
Vendors must be in compliance with all health department regulations and permit requirements. Information can be found by following this link: http://louisvilleky.gov/government/health-wellness/food-safety.
No firearms are allowed inside our events, except by explicit written approval.
IN ORDER TO VEND AT THIS EVENT YOU MUST FILL OUT THE APPLICATION BELOW (MAKE SURE TO CLICK “SUBMIT” BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM). THE CONFIRMATION SCREEN INDICATES WE HAVE RECEIVED YOUR SIGN UP. WE WILL THEN LET YOU KNOW IF YOUR APPLICATION HAS BEEN ACCEPTED NO LATER THAN 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE EVENT.
