It's starting to feel like summer again (most days...okay, SOME days), and we're excited to say that we're getting geared up to host the 2022 round of Willow Point Artisan Markets.
We're doing a Saturday evening market followed by a Sunday daytime market each month this year, so mark your calendar for Saturday, July 16 from 4-9 pm, Sunday July 17 from 10 am to 4 pm, Saturday, Aug. 20 from 1-9 pm and Sunday, Aug. 21 from 10 am to 4 pm.
So if you're a local artisan, crafter, baker or maker of any kind, hit us up if you're interested in selling your handcrafted goods at the market!
And before you ask, let's give out the answers to a few of the frequently-asked questions we get:
No, you don't need to sign up for all four days if you'd like a table at the market. You can sign up for just one day, one weekend, all four, or even three of the four days.
Yes, there is power available, but it is limited. We will try to supply power for everyone that requests it, but it just might not be possible, depending on how many vendors ask for it.
No, this year we are not accepting applications from Multi-Level Marketing businesses or retailers of anything that isn't produced locally. We have transitioned to a purely artisan, handcrafted market for local creators.
Yes, there are vendor spaces available inside The Crow's Nest again, as well as in the parking lot. If you have a preference, we will try to accommodate you. Outside vendors will be provided a 10x10 space to set up their tent and tables, whereas the inside vendors will be limited to a smaller space due to spacial constraints, but will obviously not be needing to bringing and setting a tent to give themselves shade.
If you are interested in becoming a vendor, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org asking for an application package. Vendors are being accepted on a first come/first served basis, and due to the limited number of vendors the venue can accommodate, we will be trying to prevent having duplicate types of vendors. As such will only be approving the first application from a candle-maker, or soap-maker, or woodworker, for example, so get in touch sooner rather than late.
We hope to hear from you soon about taking place in the market, or at least seeing you down here over those weekends to take advantage of the opportunity to access some of the wonderful makers, creatives and artists in our community that will be on-site showing off their beautiful work.
