What Kind of Vendor Am I?

Seasonal Vendor

Seasonal vendors apply for all 18 Saturdays of the market season. By committing to all of these dates, they are (for the most part) assigned the same stall. 


Weekly Vendor

A weekly vendor can pick and choose which weekends they want to be in the market. On the form they check off whichever dates they are interested in, and are placed based on product type and availability. For any dates we are unable to accommodate a vendor, they are placed on a waiting list and called upon when we receive cancellations. Weekly vendors are not guaranteed to receive the same placement each weekend and not guaranteed to be accepted for all of their requested dates.

Specialty Vendor

A specialty vendor is classified as a vendor that sells food that cannot be produced in Alberta. Common examples of specialty vendors are BC fruit vendors, fish vendors, and maple syrup vendors.


Concession Vendor

Concession vendors are permitted to sell single-serving, ready-to-consume food and drink items in the concession areas of the market. Other food vendors in the market are only permitted to give out ready-to-eat samples and cannot sell single items. The menus of each concession vendor must be reviewed in order to ensure there is product variety. A concession vendor typically needs to be available for all 18 market days.

Fee Busker

Fee buskers charge a pre-set fee for the entertainment or artwork they provide at the market. An example of a fee busker is a face painter that charges per face they paint, or a musician that sells CDs and merchandise as they perform. 


Busker

Buskers do not charge any fee for the entertainment or artwork they provide. They accept monetary donations rather than payment. They are rotated throughout the market and not in a permanent location. The most common type of busker in the market is a musician that leaves a container out for market visitors to tip them as they play. Buskers are not permitted to drop in to the market unannounced. They must submit an application form and have received an acceptance form in order to perform. The entire Busker market day fee will be going to a scholarship fund for young artists who may not be able to afford music lessons

Non-Profit Vendor

Non-profit vendors are organizations that want to take advantage of the crowds present at our market and spread awareness about their cause. Non-profit vendors must have their registration number present on their application to qualify. These vendors are not permitted to sell anything. Each applicant can only be in the market a maximum of twice in a season, and in general we only designate two spots for non-profits each weekend. These vendors do not have to pay to take part.


Indoor Christmas Market

Christmas vendors can pick and choose which weekends they want to be in the market. On the form they check off whichever dates they are interested in, and are placed based on product type and availability. For any dates we are unable to accommodate a vendor, they are placed on a waiting list and called upon when we receive cancellations. Vendors are not guaranteed to receive the same placement each weekend and not guaranteed to be accepted for all of their requested dates.
