Between "Artisan/Vendor" and Concession Road Mercantile
Concession Road Mercantile's Summer Market is located at 78 Victoria Street East in Alliston and runs every Saturday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm throughout the summer season from May to October. The market is a small outdoor venue on the porch, side lawn and front parking area of our store location.
Please read this information carefully. By booking this space, you are agreeing to the items noted here.
This Agreement, if accepted, authorizes you to operate a concession at the Summer Market for a one-time fee (per Saturday).
The cost for a space is $25 per Saturday. This fee is non-refundable (except for cancellation due to COVID).
Vendors are required to provide their own table/booth, and any other equipment needed--and to handle all of their own sales.
Vendors are responsible for ensuring that all COVID-19 protocols in place at the time of their market day are adhered to. We will provide updated information to you as the situation changes.
Note that this is a "curated" market and vendors will be chosen based on various criteria such as:
- the vendor is an artisan or small-batch food maker
- wholesaled or mass-produced items will not be allowed
- MLM-related products such as essential oils, cooking products, storage products, etc., will not be allowed
- preference will be given to artisans who:
- have an established small business
- have experience in market sales
- have a social media presence on Instagram
- The organizers reserve the right to restrict the type and number of vendor concessions.
- Vendors may only sell products agreed upon. Failure to comply may result in being asked to vacate the premises, forfeit all fees and future eligibility to our events.

- The Artisan Market is a rain or shine event. No refunds will be issued if a vendor does not show up for their allotted space.
- The organizers reserve the right to take photographic or film any of its vendors and the events, and we may use any such photographic or film record for promotional and/or commercial purposes without remuneration to the Vendor.

Vendors are required to dismantle and remove their concession booth by no later than 4:00 pm.
