Calling all artisans! Now accepting applications for the 2017 Pop Up Market.

Following the success of our first few markets in late 2016, we’ve doubled the number of Downtown Garner’s Pop Up Markets for 2017.

Dates: LAST Saturday of the Month, April to November

Hours: 10:00am to 2:00pm

Location: Garner Recreational Park (221 E. Garner Rd.)

Vendor Fee: $25 per month (Cash, check, and credit card accepted)

Vendor Criteria

Downtown Garner’s Pop Up Market is a curated event –  items sold at our market should be handmade, curated, or locally sourced by the vendor.

Our goal is to create an artisan pop up market featuring high quality crafts and food from across the Triangle.  A diverse mixture of vendors that varies a bit from month to month benefits both our vendors and our customers.  We welcome crafts from across the handmade spectrum – home decor, clothing and accessories, bath & beauty, and art in a variety of mediums.  Attention small farmers and hobby gardeners – We also have high demand for fresh produce! Please apply today!  

Please note: We are not accepting DIRECT SALES at this time. (Lularoe, Scentsy, Mary Kay, Jamberry, Norwex, etc.) 

Application Deadline

To be considered for the first Pop Up Market in April, vendors must submit their application by March 24.  A panel of Downtown Garner volunteers will begin selecting vendors for the coming year in the last week of March and notifications will be sent out by March 31.

After the deadline, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and vendors will be notified based on the availability of space.
