What if I don't sell something but I have a project I would like to share?
This is a great question. You have a choice between two types of spaces at 3rd Sundays at Front Street. The first option is a vendor space. If you are selling products, services or exchanging money (in any form) this is your table option. The second option an information space for anyone who is not collecting money. An information table is perfect for any person or group who would like to grow membership, premiere a community project, or advocate for a cause. We also welcome political candidates.
I am a vendor and I registered online, do I need to print out and bring anything when I come to set up?
No, vendors do not need to bring a copy of their registration.
What is your refund policy?
Vendor fees are generally nonrefundable unless agreed to by the Marker Administrator.
Can vendors register at "the door"?
Vendor registrations should be prepaid. We will accept walk-ins as long as the product or service meets the market's criteria. Walk-in booth space is $30.
What kind of vendors do you accept or are you looking for?
We want to celebrate Dayton vendors, makers, farmers, artists, artisans, entrepreneurs, small business owners, Etsy shop purveyors, you name it. While we don't have requirements on what you may sell. We do hope that you will not sell live animals, live ammo, or products that the general public may see as dangerous given their intended use.
Below is all the basic info for market day
If I'm a vendor, how will I know where my booth is and where to park?
The Friday before market we send out an email. Attached will be two (2) PDF files to help you locate your booth space:
1. The market map with numbered booth spaces. The map will include vendor parking information.
2. Alphabetized Vendor listing with booth location.
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Vendors may not break down their booths until 4:00 PM. We are a rain or shine market.
Set-up time is from 8:30 AM - 10:45 AM. We ask that vendors unload their vehicles prior to setting up, and remove vehicles from the market area as soon as possible. All vehicles must be out of the market area by 10:45 AM. Vendors must be ready to start selling promptly at 11:00 AM.
Special parking, close to the market area has been set aside for the vendors. Refer to the vendor packet that arrives on the Friday prior to the market for vendor parking locations.
3rd Sundays at Front Street encourages vendors to use a canopy or tent, but does not require them. Tents cannot be bigger than 10' x 10'. All vendors setting up a canopy or tent in a space must have it properly constructed and secured. During unusually windy conditions 3rd Sundays at Front Street reserves the right to require vendors to take down canopies and tents.
NOTE: Vendor accepts and agrees that 3rd Sundays at Front Street shall not be responsible or liable for the vendor’s use of a canopy or its construction, and each vendor agrees to and shall hold 3rd Sundays at Front Street harmless from, and indemnify 3rd Sundays at Front Street against any injury or property damage that may occur due to the use of such equipment.
For the safety of vendors and customers, the following streets are closed:
• Dutoit just north of Third Street to Second Street, where it ends.

Streets will be closed starting at 11 AM. Although the barricades will be set up early, vendors will be able to get through.
