When/How Will I Know If I Am Accepted or Rejected

Each application form states a “Notifications Emailed” date. That is the date that you will be notified on your acceptance or rejection.

Why Was I Rejected

Vendors are selected on quality, photo submission, and uniqueness of product. Some products are simply not a good fit for 900 Marketplace. Vendors may also  be rejected due to an overwhelming volume of  same category applications. If you have been rejected, please don’t let this discourage you from applying to future shows. Vendors are selected on a show to show basis.

Cancellations

Cancellations made 30 or more days before a show, will receive a 40% refund. Cancellations made within 29 days prior to a show are no longer eligible for a refund.

    1. Hello, so sorry i missed this post. The November show has been closed for applications since September. You find open applications for 2019, starting with one in February, in the “market applications” menu tab. Thanks so much!

  4. Hi,

    Is there any licensing or other requirements to be a vendor, or just the booth fee? I’m just starting out selling at events, and I’m having difficulty finding out what licensing and permits I will need. I sell hand crocheted stuffed animals in unique colors.

    Thank you.
