And June 21st is quickly approaching! Time to get your application in, and mark the date on your calendar.
There has been a lot of chatter and interest in the event, but now it’s time to take the plunge! If you’ve been wondering if you should get involved in Marietta Marketplace, the answer is YES! The first time is always the scariest, and most people would rather follow than lead. Well, we’ve got our first group of vendors signed up and leading the way—why not follow their lead?
Marietta Marketplace will grow to become much more than a one-day flea. Our goal is to create an event that will benefit vendors, Marietta merchants and visitors. We envision not only an outdoor market with unique goods, but also a destination for a one tank trip. Add in some food booths, perhaps a couple of workshops, maybe some music—and you have an event! The location on the Armory lawn will make it easy for visitors to extend their shopping to the nearby shops and eateries, and prominent signage will direct them to Harmar across the foot bridge.
If you are a creator, artist, upcycler, baker, vintage seller, artisan or crafter—you’re invited to apply! Click the “Apply” tab for details. And remember, Marietta Marketplace will link to your online store and promote you on its Facebook page.
Merchants, if you know of a local or regional talent who would like to showcase their items on June 21st, encourage them to check out Marietta Marketplace.
The city of Marietta has already gained high marks for its charm, friendliness, and history. We want to add another reason to visit and experience the Mid Ohio Valley!
