The Flea off Market is a community showcase of artists, craftspersons, collectors, entrepreneurs, farmers, and anybody that just wants to have a "yard sale" with us. If you do not fall under one of these categories but would still like to participate please call us to discuss (502-552-0061).
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).

VEHICLES ARE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN FROM ENTERING THE MARKET AREA DURING MARKET HOURS.
Electric access is mostly reserved for food vendors. However, if you absolutely need electricity to participate as a non-food vendor, we can arrange for that. You must speak with Nathan to confirm access (502-552-0061). The fee to access electric 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 us 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 at Lincoln Elementary, 1 block West on Market St. next to Feast BBQ. This allows street parking for patrons and neighbors. (If you need to park closer due to health reasons, street parking is ok.)
NOTE ON NEIGHBORS:
The following neighbors generously allow us use of their space for our event: Fresh Start, Climb NULU, Harshaw Trane, Jim Phillips Const., and Hunt Tractor. Please be considerate of their space!
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. Vendors will be held accountable for any damage caused by flying tents.
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).
VENDOR PAYMENT POLICY:
We collect money on site the day of the event sometime after 2pm. You can pay using cash, check, money order, 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.
