Frequently Asked Questions


grading

How do I register as a vendor?

To become a vendor, the first step is to submit an application. Once we review it, we will follow up on whether your product or service is a good fit for our market.

We typically receive anywhere from a few dozen to 100+ applications per week and that we personally review each one so please be patient if we do not respond immediately.

Why do we charge an application fee?

We understand that the application process can be a bit overwhelming, especially since we receive so many submissions each year.

In fact, last year we received over 2500 applications.

We take the time to review each and every one individually, sometimes multiple times, to ensure that we're able to provide a high-quality experience for our attendees.

While we love being able to support so many amazing businesses and creators, it can be tough for our small team to keep up with the volume of applications we receive.

That's why we've introduced a nominal application fee - it helps us dedicate additional resources to the review process and also helps deter individuals who may not be serious about participating or who submit multiple applications.

Which payment methods do you take?

We handle all of our payments online via credit card. We do not take checks or cash.

In addition to credit card payments, we also offer financing options for our seasonal plans through ACH payments.

This means that instead of paying for your seasonal plan upfront, you can make automatic payments over time using your bank account.

We hope this helps, and we look forward to working with you!

I'm selling food, do I need to do anything special?

Yes, while it varies by municipality, you will need to obtain a permit ahead of time. We have prepared documents for Bell Works (Holmdel) and Asbury Park to help streamline the process. Should you have any any additional questions please feel free to contact us.
card_membership

What are your vendor guidelines?

Our vendor guidelines are a general set of expectations and rules for all vendors to follow. They are available here.

We strongly encourage (i.e. require) anyone looking to sell with us to review them in detail.
gavel

I need to cancel my booking or change my date?

A considerable amount of work goes into curating and booking each market date and we turn away many vendor types to create a healthy balance of sellers at our events. For this reason, we maintain a very strict cancellation policy.

We encourage (i.e. require) all vendors to review it prior to selling with us and please be aware that we will enforce it.
pending_actions

What does it mean if my application is pending or was rejected for lack of space?

There is limited amount of vendors we can take on each season, for each market, in each category of products.

For things like candles, soaps, and jewelry there are a lot of makers looking to sell and not a lot of space.

If your application is still pending we haven’t reviewed it yet. Once it is reviewed, we will notify you via email and text message whether is was approved or rejected.

How do I know if I’m a good fit to vend?

Do you sell something of exceptional quality and would you consider yourself a 'producer' or 'maker'?

Do others consider you a 'nice person'?

If so, chances are that we'd love to work with you.

What happens if it rains?

All of our markets (both indoor and outdoor) are held rain or shine. There will be no refunds or rescheduling permitted due to inclement weather and other unforeseen acts of nature.

You should be prepared for possible rain showers during market hours. We recommend having a backup plan to safeguard your products. 

pets

Are you dog/kid/reptile friendly?

Typically, yes, we are pet and kid friendly (maybe hold off on bringing your pet snake).

If you're unsure, it always helps to DM us on Facebook or Instagram and ask.
event_busy

The market I want to sell at is sold out - now what?

Our markets often sell out so we encourage you to apply early and book your space should you be approved.

Once a market is sold-out we maintain a waitlist in case of cancellations. We then carefully select from that list to fill in the missing categories. We usually have a few cancellations but not many so please keep this in mind.
table_restaurant

Do I need a tent? How big is my space? Should I bring a table?

Vendor space size and tent & table requirement will be sent to you prior to your market date.

If your setup requires additional space please contact [email protected] to discuss your options.
