INFO & APPLICATION FORM FOR VENDORS
(FOOD VENDORS: please DO NOT fill out THIS form. Instead, 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.
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).

Electric access is extremely limited. However, if you absolutely need electricity to participate, we can arrange for that. You must speak with Nathan to confirm access (502-552-0061).
The fee is $20 and vendors must bring at least 100' of grounded cord.
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.
All vendors are required to park 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 ok.) 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. That 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. A Flea employee will come around and collect payment after 2 pm the day of the event. You can pay using cash, check or Flea Bucks.
If vendor has signed up but chooses not to attend that is totally fine, but PLEASE LET US KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
WEATHER AND RAIN DATES:
Inclement weather may result in event cancellation and/or rescheduling to next weather-permitting weekend. We will communicate through email and Facebook to keep vendors and patrons updated.
No firearms are allowed inside our events, except by explicit written approval.
TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THIS EVENT, YOU MUST FILL OUT THE APPLICATION BELOW (MAKE SURE TO CLICK “SUBMIT” BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM), AND EMAIL US A FEW PICTURES OF YOUR WORK OR WARES (to TheFleaOffMarket@gmail.com). AS SOON AS WE CAN (ABOUT 2 WEEKS), YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL TO LET YOU KNOW IF YOUR APPLICATION HAS BEEN ACCEPTED.
