Interested in being a vendor at the 6th Street Market? Great! You're in the right place. Before you apply, please take a moment to review the info below about who we are (and are not) looking for and what to expect as a Market vendor.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR

We're looking for makers of all kinds - crafters, upcyclers, artists, sculptors, painters, musicians, inventors, etc. If you make anything, you could be a vendor! More specifically, if you use the following words to describe your business, we're looking for you:

  • Handcrafted
  • Unique
  • One-of-a-kind
  • Small-batch, small-scale
  • Artisan
  • Quality
  • Professional
  • Etsy Shop Owner
  • Micro-business, Micro-enterprise or Start-up

The 6th Street Market is a curated show. We do our best to select a diverse group of quality makers at each event. 

WHO WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR

If you use the following words to describe your business, unfortunately, this is not the market for you:

  • Buy/Sell
  • Reseller
  • Direct Sales

In addition, we do not allow unprofessionalism, negativity, political paraphernalia, or illegal items/sentiments. We are a community of makers who support and encourage one another. As such, we will fiercely protect our community from any person(s) whose attitude is uncooperative, unsupportive, aggressive, demeaning, or degrading. Don't be that person.

WHAT TO EXPECT

As a vendor at the 6th Street Market, expect to connect with a community of like-minded creatives and an enthusiastic customer base excited to shop your handmade goods!

Vendors are responsible for providing all the necessary elements for their display (tables, chairs, and tent).

The 2018-2019 fees include:

  • $10 non-refundable application fee
  • $20 per market when registering for all 25 markets at one time ($500 total + Reserve your spot for the entire season)
  • $25 per Sunday when registering for 12-24 markets at one time
  • $30 per Sunday when registering for 4-11 markets at one time
  • $35 per Sunday when registering for 1-3 markets at one time

Applications are accepted on a continual basis throughout the 6th Street Market season.

Once you apply and have been juried, if accepted, you can register and pay for selected dates. A Social Media Kit will be provided prior to the start of the market, please utilize it throughout the season to promote your presence at the 6th Street Market.

Our most successful vendors are those that embrace social media and actively promote themselves at the market. 6th Street Market also puts a lot of resources toward marketing. When you combine this with all of the vendor's active promotions on social media the reach is far and everyone wins.

2018-19 Marketing Kit

To this end, we will hold a series of marketing/social media classes throughout the season. Dates TBD

Please review the Rules and Regulations on the Application before applying. Have additional questions about being a vendor? Please contact Julie Kent at: julie@downtowntempe.com
