MARKET DAY: Kingwood Markets

Posted by Texas Trade Days LLC on

Kingwood Town Center Park

8 N Main St. Kingwood, TX 77339

TIMES:

  • Set Up: 10 am to 12 pm
  • Market: 12 pm to 4 pm
  • Tear Down: 4 pm to 5 pm

    SET UP:

    You'll set up where you want in the grass along the sidewalks within the park. Main traffic comes through nearby the flag poles. Use this layout as a guide.

    1. TOP GRAY LINE/CHACHI'S: Flag pole street/main entrance
    2. TRAILER: Reserved areas for mobile vendors
      1. Park with your side entrance doors facing the park area, not the street
    3. ARROWS: Face in the direction they point.
    4. GREEN BOXES: Electrical boxes along the curbs for your use

    PARKING:

    Please don't park to unload in the areas marked for trailers or too close to them. When you're finished unloading, please park behind the businesses (off the park street - reserved for customers).

    Don't park behind:

    • VIP NAILS
    • STATE FARM
    • CHACHI'S

    If you have a disability, please use your placard or plates and remain parked on the park curb. Please remind us on market day.

    CHECK-IN:

    You will be checked-in around market opening. I'll have a list for you to sign that acknowledges your attendance and the Vendor Agreement

    MARKET TIME:

    Our shoppers like mid-market sales, credit and cash purchases, so be sure to come prepared. If there's a theme, feel free to have fun and decorate your booths, bring candy and any freebies you'd like to contribute alongside the market. Many kids and pets join their parents as well! This is your time to shine! Don't forget about posting your attendance and photos to your social media, and tag Texas Trade Days, LLC, too!

    RESTROOMS:

    Restrooms are McDonald's and Burger King nearby. There may be a portable one leftover from a Saturday event. I don't guarantee its condition and be very careful not to let it get damaged - the other coordinator is responsible for paying for a new one if it is damaged. If you notice damage, please let one of us know so we can tape it closed and notify park management.

    FOOD:

    It's strongly recommended you bring your lunch and any snacks you may need to get through the day. Coolers are allowed at the park, too. You're welcome to visit the nearby restaurants, but there may be times you're too busy to leave. We don't have food trucks attending our markets anymore either. 

    BREAKS:

    If you need to take a break, feel free to ask the Market Coordinator to watch your booth, especially if your neighbors are busy. Be sure to take your cash and personal valuables with you as well, in cases of an emergency. Leave your business cards out and we'll be glad to pass out your business cards when we let shoppers know you're on a quick break, too!

    PREPARE FOR OFFLINE SALES:

    Don't let WiFi or cellular reception issues interrupt your sales. Prepare for offline sales by having everything you need to reduce lost sales during market days. Prepare with minimal change, a receipt book, and anything else you need in case WiFi or Cellular Service isn't available. We don't have control over these services, so it's best to come to market days prepared. 

    TEAR DOWN:

    At tear down, you can bring your vehicles back to the park to load. Just watch out for each other and any lingering shoppers. 

    ADVERTISING:

    Post some "teaser" posts in our Facebook events, tag us in your social media posts and have fun leading up to our markets. Flyers and shareables are posted in our Facebook events, on our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram!
