VENDOR PARKING:
Curbside loading and unloading only. You must park in the parking spaces behind the business buildings during the market open times. 

If you see orange road cones, don’t park in that area. PLEASE, don’t park in front of Chachi’s or behind VIP Nails or State Farm.

NOTE: “At booth site” parking on the park grounds for loading/unloading is not available. Be sure to bring your carts or dollies.

Food & Drink:
We may not have food trucks or concessions. Bring your own food & drink. Large meals should be eaten in your vehicles. Please take your trash with you!

Trash:
Please take your trash with you. Be sure to bring your own trash bags, too. We can use the dumpster behind State Farm.

Ground Covers:
If you wish to bring a rug, outdoor ground cover, etc., please use it in a safe way! If we ask you to adjust or remove it, please do so.

LEAVING EARLY: 
Please be mindful of other businesses, Texas Trade Days business and shoppers! Just stay until we close. You just never know what may happen! Even busy vendors will start shopping later! Refer to the vendor policy on your application for more details. PLUS, we may have a vendor gift drawing at the end of the market, so be sure to bring your business cards because we will collect them at the end when we do!

Shopper Hawking:
You may politely say hi and invite customers in the aisles to come inside your booth. Don’t be obnoxious or chase them down, but you can grab their attention politely. Don’t pull them away from other vendor booths though!

Increase Sales:

Increase your sales chances with engagement! Smile, greet and talk with your shoppers! Our shoppers respond incredibly well to vendors who are active, happy and attentive to them! Actively sell to them with questions, quick mentions of sales and product highlights, and demonstrations! Invite them to touch, feel, and try on your items! Also, give them time to think and quietly shop. Just be nearby and ready to help them close the sale!

HELP STOP THE LAST HOUR LULLS WITH SALES!

Most retail stores see a sales lull around 2 pm to 3 pm which continues until the evening hours. Pop Up markets experience this same lull after 2 to 3 hours of being open. Let’s help keep the shoppers coming by throwing sales! We’ll announce sales around 2 to 3 pm on our social media! We invite you to do the same!

First Aid:

We have a first aid kit if you or a customer needs it. If you notice anyone hurt, not feeling well, etc. please let us know, so we can help.

Venue Layout:

The layout below is intended for a full market.

All spaces are outdoors and 10 feet by 10 feet (10×10). You’ll need to bring your equipment (tents, weights, tables, chairs, displays, etc.).

REMEMBER: No staking of tents and all tents need 30-45 pounds of weight for each leg of your tent. Safe use of cheap concrete 2-hole cinder blocks and rope is allowed until you get a more appropriate style of weights. Doughnut weights are not recommended.

During hot months, vendors may set up under the shade trees. It’s strongly recommended vendors set up next to each other to help attract customers and increase everyone’s sales.
