Frequently Asked Questions
When is the market open?
The Whiteaker Community Market’s main summer season is every Sunday 11am-4pm, May through September. We also do occasional pop up markets, winter markets, and special events throughout the year.
What is the booth fee?
Booth fees are $10 + 10% of sales per market day. In addition, every approved vendor pays an annual $25 membership fee.
How many vendors are at the market and can vendors share?
Our booth capacity is 30 10 x 10 spaces. We encourage vendors to share booth spaces!
what are the requirements for products a vendor can sell?
We prioritize vendor applicants who make their product or source their materials locally and/or ethically. We feel strongly that whatever a vendor chooses to sell should not culturally belong to historically marginalized groups unless the vendor identifies with these groups.
How are vendors scheduled? are they required to sign up for every market day?
Vendors are scheduled month to month on a first come first serve basis. Vendors are not required to vend at every market day, but rather to only sign up for the days they know they can vend in the upcoming month.
