We may have a BBQ vendor coming to serve food, compliments of the Fairgrounds Management. If you have dietary restrictions, bring your own food & drink. Large meals should be eaten in your vehicles. Please take your trash with you.

Trash:
Be sure to bring your own trash bags and take your trash with you, or discard in an on-site dumpster.

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 have one!

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 customer base responds 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!

Security:
Security may be on-site. If you have an immediate issue, don’t hesitate to go to them first, but please let the coordinator or staff know ASAP! 

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.
