A few Frequently Asked Questions about Vending at Rockford Midtown Market
(Check out the Vendor Guidelines PDF for more information)
ROCKFORD MIDTOWN MARKET PURPOSE
Rockford Midtown Market’s goal is to build community around food, music, coffee, kid activities, and craft items. Vendors must submit an application and be selected through a committee approval process. The Rockford Midtown Market is a partnership between the Midtown District and Katie’s Cup – both 501(c)3 organizations. It will be held in the RPS205 Administrative parking lot off Fourth Avenue.
HOW LOCAL ARE YOUR MARKET VENDORS?
The Midtown Market gives preference to vendors within a 90 mile radius. Local products and vendors receive priority. The event strives to work with local small business owners and entrepreneurs in the area who produce their own products.
HOW BIG IS THE BOOTH SPACE?
All booths are 10ft x 10ft spaces. Vendors may rent multiple spaces. Spaces are assigned by the market team. Vendors will be charged for multiple spaces if need exceeds 10ft x 10ft. Vendors may bring their own tent, table/s and chair/s (these are not provided). There is no electricity at the site.
HOW DO I BECOME A VENDOR?
A completed application includes an application with a description of your product(s). Vendors wishing to sell food or beverages may be asked to submit samples. To ensure a wide variety of goods at the market, the number of vendors in each product category may be limited. Vendor booths are for vendors with regionally grown or produced products. We do not allow vendors for services, political organizations or campaigns, franchises, third party/direct sales or hostess companies, or not-for-profit organizations. The only exception to this is for businesses or non-profits that benefit the neighborhoods of Midtown.
