How can I be a vendor?

Open tab

See our Vendor Details page for detailed information. We’re always seeking out new vendors who have unique merchandise and a creative style. The show is juried – meaning vendors have to apply and meet certain standards – and we always ask to see photos of your merchandise and especially displays you have set up since visual merchandising is very important to us.

Vendors

How will I know if I have been accepted after applying?

Open tab

We will email you with your hobnobmarket.com username & password (needed to reserve market spaces) plus your New Vendor Kit. If we're unable to accept you as a vendor we will also contact you.

What are the reasons I may not be accepted as a vendor?

Open tab

Lots of variety among vendors is the goal at every Hobnob Market. We limit the number of vendors in each category to avoid oversaturating the event with too much of the same kind of merchandise. Certain categories (like boutique clothing, handmade signs, & handmade candles) tend to fill up quickly and often we don't have any openings available.

Please also see our list of Vendor Guidelines.

Do I need to apply for each market?

Open tab

That's not necessary. We allow accepted vendors to participate in any of the market events we have posted on our website. Re-applications for new calendar years are also not necessary.

Is there an application fee?

Open tab

No, we don't request an application fee.
