NIGHT MARKET VENDOR INFO
WHY BE A NIGHT MARKET VENDOR?
We view the Night Market as a platform for neighbors to launch and grow their businesses, initiatives, and missions. With the Night Market attracting thousands of people from all over the region monthly, it is a great place to educate people about a cause or sell the license plate art you made in your basement.
Above all, the Night Market is about making it easy for vendors to sell their goods, and easy for neighbors to enjoy public space. The mean vendor income for 2014 per market was over $400.00.
AM I ELIGIBLE TO BE A VENDOR?
While we try to focus on vendors from Lexington's Northside, we do welcome folks from all over the region to vend. We do not allow national chains to vend at the market, illicit products to be sold, or the distribution of alcoholic beverages outside of the Market's beer tents.
Vendors are allotted a 10 foot x 10 foot booth space, with the exception of food trucks. Vendors are responsible for bringing their own materials, including a tent, tables, lights, and chairs, if you want them. All vendors are required to bring their own extension cord and surge protector. Vendors are required to secure any and all permits required for their booth, as appropriate.
If you are interested in vending at the Night Market, this is where you start. To become a vendor, you must fill out the vendor application, which is located at the bottom of this page. By filling out an application, you are acknowledging that you understand and agree to all terms of conditions outlined in the application.
Filling out the application does not guarantee you a spot at the Night Market. Once we have received your application, we will contact you regarding availability. Vendors must apply for each Night Market, or indicate in the application which markets you are interested in for the year.
