Information for Crafters
We are currently accepting applications for our Crafts Day at the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market on Sunday, August 23rd from 10 AM to 2 PM. All applications must be received by Monday, August 3rd for guaranteed consideration.
Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the application process and requirements for vendors have changed significantly. Please read all materials carefully to assess your eligibility and ability to meet the many new requirements before beginning the application process.
Save time, minimize risk! The application and related forms now have fillable fields so that they can be completed on your computer, and all application packets must be submitted via email to [email protected]
All market vendors, including crafts vendors, are now required to carry Commercial Liability Insurance. This is a requirement from our own market insurer. Read the Vendor Insurance Information Sheet for additional information about your options.
**Insurance Note: We understand that getting insurance for a single event if you’re not sure you’ll be accepted to the event is a speculative expense you may not wish to incur. We don’t blame you! If you do NOT already have insurance and plan to get single event insurance for this event, please let us know when you submit your application. If you are accepted, you will need to get your coverage quickly and submit proof of insurance and additional insured within a week.
Application & Event Timeline:
Please note that the entire process this year is on a much shorter turnaround time than usual. Due the pandemic, we were unsure we would be able to hold an event at all. Now that we have a clear path forward for an altered event (hooray!), we are moving quickly and asking you to do the same so that we can still hold the event during a peak summertime week.
We apologize for any inconvenience this speedy timeline may present and understand the timing may not work for all potential vendors. For those who cannot accommodate the tighter turnaround or the new and admittedly challenging vendor requirements, we look forward to welcoming you back in the future when the pandemic has passed and requirements can hopefully once again be relaxed.
