Shopper FAQs

Does is cost anything to get in and park?

No. We currently offer free admission and parking!

Yes! We welcome all ages and families. Our vendors do not sell items that are not family friendly. We don’t allow alcohol, weapon, sexually explicit items to be sold at any of our markets.

Is handicap parking available?

Yes. Our venues are public venues which are required to be handicap accessible with parking available. Our locations are generally scooter, stroller, wagon, walker and wheelchair friendly.

Do you have scooter, stroller or golf cart rentals available?

No. Our markets are not big enough to have this option at this time. We request you bring your own if these accommodations are needed.

Do you have live performers?

No. In order for us to continue to support our small business community, we do not hire live performers. However, we are very community focused! If you want to participate, we offer a “Picker’s Circle” area at each market for anyone in the local community to bring a chair, instrument and friends to jam! Other live performers need to email the Owner-Market Coordinator to make arrangements. Kid’s “make & take,” face painting, crafting and other non-food activity/demonstration booths are preferred.

How many vendors do your markets have?

Our markets are currently rebounding back to pre-Hurricane Harvey numbers. We originally averaged over 30 vendors per market in 2017 before Harvey at our community markets and dropped to over a dozen right after Harvey through 2018 – which began seeing over 20. The largest number we booked for 1 market was about 100, but the Santa Fe High School Shooting dropped our actual attendance number to just over 50 vendors. Now, we are averaging around several dozen vendors at each market with the fairgrounds markets seeing as many as over 50 and our community market generally see over 30 most dates. Numbers are still fluctuating, but we are seeing positive rebound and growth with a lot of regularly returning vendors, many we’ve had since we started! Each of our venues hold at least 100 vendors!
