Market Policies - 2019
All items must be handcrafted by you, your immediate family or your group. The artist/designer/creator must be present at the show. Only products indicated on the show contract will be allowed at the show. For example, applicants whose main product category is jewelry may not sell fibre art products unless noted on application.
Body Products Policy
All body care products must be labelled according to Health Canada standards.
Please have available at your booth a copy of current Food Safe certificate. You may need to present it to the health inspector. Any vendor selling food not produced in a health certified kitchen will be required to post a sign stating so.
Product Request for Art Market Raffle
Last year, and previous years, the gift basket raffle was and continues to be a real success! Thank you for your contributions. This year we will do the same and create gift baskets with your creations. It is not mandatory but, we ask that all vendors contribute a piece of merchandise or product sample that is identified to help promote your business. Your donations will be assembled in attractive baskets and raffled during the Market. Your samples will be collected the morning of the Market. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
No refunds are provided without 2 week written or email notification. A 50% refund will be issued provided the booth can be filled and is at the discursion of the Arts Council board.
We ask that all vendors load in and out of the hall via the upper east doorways and not through the main lobby entrance. (See attached map) This will keep the stairway and main entrance free of congestion and cause less interruption with the Rec Centre customers. Any vendors who are located in the lower lobby can load/unload through main entrance but we ask you please park around the rear of the building.
