When and where is the next market?
Check the “Markets” tab of our homepage, and be sure to follow us on Facebook for updates and announcements.
The first location was on the grounds of the historic Armory, on Front Street along the river. Future events may be held in the same location, or in other locations such as lovely Muskingum Park.
Sounds fun! How do I become a vendor?
Click on the “Apply” tab on our homepage. You’ll find the criteria and guidelines, and the application form. Unfortunately, not everyone that applies will be accepted. Your product may be amazing, but we don’t want too many vendors in the same category. Our goal is to provide a worthwhile experience for both vendors and buyers.
How much does it cost to be a vendor?
Booth space varies depending on size, rates are listed on the Apply page.
What do I get for my money?
You get to be part of a new tradition in beautiful downtown Marietta–the pop-up flea! You get promoted online both on this website and the Facebook page, lots of shout-outs, shares and links. Press releases to the Marietta Times, Athens Messenger, Jeffersonian, Parkersburg News and Sentinel, and The Anchor. Not to mention a lovely outdoor venue, tent set up for you if you choose that option, and a great supportive community!
We want Marietta Marketplace to be more than a flea–we want to nurture a community of artists, craftspeople, vintage vendors, and more. In addition, we want to create an event that buyers and visitors will look forward to. To that end, we will have competitions for the best display, online shout-outs to vendors as the date draws near, and even a raffle to benefit a local charity.
What kind of vendors are you looking for?
Marietta Marketplace vendors are selling products that are unique, creative, and visually interesting. Your product may be eco-friendly, a new twist on a classic, or an inspired re-purpose for a vintage item. We are not looking for products that are sold through franchises, or vendors selling services.
