Vendors - Park Silly Sunday Market
Welcome Vendors to our 2021 Summer Market.
Please read below for all rules and regulations before applying.
We will continue to work closely with our local Health Department to ensure we have a safe and successful opening of our market this summer. Please know, we will be following all guidelines throughout the summer as advised by the Summit County Health Department. Please stay safe so we can open. If there is any single market day cancellation, you will be refunded vendor fees for that date.
We are committed to our vendors, participants and community, and will do everything in our power to make your experience with us enjoyable, lively and profitable. In 2019, the Park Silly Sunday Market saw over 187,000 people and averaged 13,000 people per Sunday. Vendors should keep in mind that they are not required to participate every Sunday; however, vendors ARE required to participate all day 10am - 5pm, rain or shine, on each day approved on their application.
We look very carefully at the entire range of products being offered by our vendors. We use an online application system called Manage My Market. All vendors are admitted based on what type of products we feel will enhance the Market experience. All products should be attractive to Market customers without diluting the existing product base. We welcome new vendors every week and strive to always keep variety at the Market. Vendors have the option to choose the specific Sundays on which they want to participate. We do not provide exclusivity for any vendor or product type. Please note that vendors must agree to all policies outlined in the Vendor Handbook - updates include No-Show/Cancel fee for any vendor that arrives late, leaves early, no-shows or cancels with less than 72 hours written notice.
