Event Layout: A layout of the event with assigned vendor spaces will be sent out one day prior to the event as we often have last-minute vendor changes.
Parking: You may pull into our main driveway to unload your display and merchandise. After unloading, please move your vehicle to the vendor parking area as quickly as possible to allow other vendors to access their spaces. All vendor vehicles must be moved to the vendor parking area by 9:30am. 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 evening from 4-7pm or Saturday morning from 8:30-10:30am. If you set up on Friday, please be sure to contact us so we are expecting you and do not leave any merchandise overnight. Again, all vendor vehicles must be moved to the vendor parking area by 10:30am. If you have not arrived by 10:00am, we will assume you are a no-show and reassign your space to another vendor. If you know you will be late due to circumstances beyond your control, please text or call Missy at 443-465-3208 so that you can be reassigned to a space with easier access that will prevent impeding or endangering event attendees.
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 the event end time 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: One half of your vendor fee is a non-refundable space reservation. The other half will be refunded if 1) you cancel at least 7 days prior and we are able to fill your spot with someone from the waitlist or 2) if the entire event must be cancelled on both the event date and inclement weather date, at the sole discretion of Wishing Star Farm & Wellness. Please note that the event will go on in the case of rain showers.

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.
