Walk-Through: All vendors are welcome to schedule a walk-through to familiarize yourself with the property and layout of the event.
Layout: A layout of the event with assigned vendor spaces will be sent out the week of the Market.
Parking: You may pull into our main driveway to unload your display and merchandise. After unloading, please move your vehicle to the parking area in the lower field. We will be utilizing the front parking area near the farm stand for handicap parking only.
Set-Up: You may set up your tables and displays either Friday afternoon from 2-5pm or Saturday morning from at 7:30-9:30am. If you set up on Friday, please be sure to contact us so we are expecting you and do not leave any merchandise overnight. Please note: All vendor vehicles must be moved to the vendor parking area by 9:30am. If you have not arrived by 9:15am, we will assume you are a no-show and may reassign your space to another vendor.
Electricity: If you have requested electricity, there is a $10 charge, which must be pre-paid. Vendors are responsible for providing their own grounded extension cord(s).
Take-Down Take-down will begin as close to 4pm as is safe, depending upon customer traffic. Plan to remain open until the event end time. Please do not begin breaking down your display early as this can cause safety issues for shoppers and also looks unprofessional. All merchandise and displays must be removed when vendor leaves the premises.
Vendor Fee: Each vendor space is a flat fee of $40. $20 of this fee is a non-refundable space reservation. The remaining $20 will be refunded if you cancel your vendor space at least 7 days in advance, or if the entire event must be cancelled due to new COVID restrictions or severe weather on both the event date and inclement weather date.
Content The Market is meant to be a festive, family-friendly event. No inappropriate, offensive or inflammatory messaging or merchandise will be permitted, at the sole discretion of Wishing Star Farm owners.
Displays: You are welcome to utilize tables, chairs and free-standing displays as long as they fit within your designated space. If you have an outdoor space, you may also bring your own canopy. If you are using tables for your display, please bring cloths to cover the table, preferably to the ground. This helps maintain a welcoming appearance for the show. Wishing Star Farm is only providing tables to those who have signed up to rent them. Please also keep in mind that most of the spaces will be set up on grass and some may have a slight slope.
Weather: Please dress for the weather as this is an open-air event. The front wall of the main barn will be open as well. In addition to the temperature, be sure to plan for wind as well as sun. Weigh down your displays and remember your sunscreen!
Sales Tax: The collection and payment of sales taxes are the responsibility of each vendor. You may contact the state comptroller’s office to obtain a temporary license if needed. By state law, we are required to submit a list of vendors to the Comptroller's office. If you do not have a license, they will then assign one to you. You do not need to do anything and there is no charge to you.
COVID: To keep this event as safe as possible for everyone, all vendors and shoppers are asked to maintain social distancing as much as possible. Mask requirements will be based upon current state guidance at the time of the show. Each vendor must also have hand sanitizer at your space for use by you and your customers. If you have a fever, are experiencing any COVID-related symptoms or have tested positive within two weeks of the event date, you may not participate in the Market. Please note that by participating in the Market, you release Wishing Star Farm and its owners from any COVID-related claims.
Insurance: Wishing Star Farm does not provide insurance for vendors participating in the market. Each vendor is responsible for his/her own liability insurance. All food vendors are required to have liability insurance and adequate coverage for persons working within their booths and must provide a certificate of insurance 24 hours prior to the event.
Liability: All vendors agree to indemnify and hold harmless Wishing Star Farm and its owners from and against any and all losses, liabilities, costs, expenses (including amounts paid in settlements and reasonable attorney’s fees), claims, penalties, judgments and damages, resulting from any omission or negligence of the property owners or other vendors in any way connected with or arising out of any accident, injury, damage or theft.
