Lottery

Market Day Lottery

Names drawn from a hat the day of the market to fill empty booths.

Market Day Lottery: On Tuesdays, starting at 3:30pm, we start taking names. Each person writes their name and cell # on a piece of paper and puts it in the “lottery basket”. Then, starting at 4:00pm, we draw names from the basket and assign available booths. You will need to be in attendance at 4:00pm to receive a booth. Please understand that there is no guarantee that all lottery participants will get a booth. Every day is different and is dependent on how many people apply for the lottery that day and the number of last minute cancellations we have.

Please make sure you have the Vendor Contract Form all filled out.
