We want you to have an OMAZING day, so to make the outdoor event more comfortable, we offer the following suggestions for your booth:
- Cooler with ice
- Water (water fountain is available in The Market building, as well as a/c and many restaurants)
- Fans (take advantage of the free electricity!)
- Regular pro outdoor vendors at the Farmer's Market recommend this type of mister which does not require a hose. Water for refill is available at the loading dock north of The Shed
- Here is a much more affordable option for a personal mister.
Make sure to schedule someone to take over your booth for a shift or three so you can have a break and enjoy some yoga. Pick up some food and free goodies from the awesome Sponsors and walk around!
Lastly, have fun!

Load-in/out and parking:
We will be setting up all Vendors on the North end of Pearl St East of 'The Market' on the street, both sides between Marilla St. and Taylor and also a smaller setup south of 'The Market' on the sidewalk by the south doors.
Be ready for a quick unload curbside and then park your vehicle in the free, lower level of the parking garage located at 920 S. Harwood St. If you set up after parking your car, it will make the event load-in much smoother. It gets pretty hectic during morning load-in, but it works fine if everyone comes prepared for quick movement.
There is a parking lot along the north side of the Market building. It's a paid lot, but you can can pull in for a 10-15 minute. There are usually some street spaces on the south side of the Market for those who are setting up there. Just remember to park in the lower level of the garage (down the ramp) to keep the closest spaces for customers.
