Please note all vendor applications must be made online by completing this application and clicking submit. Mail in applications will not be considered.
Parking & Restrooms
Vendors are expected to unload the items needed for their booths near their designated booths without obstructing traffic or parking in handicapped areas, then move their vehicles to legal parking spots. Public restrooms are available for vendors in the Stowe Area Association building or in the Stowe Mercantile building on the Depot Street side.
Firearms & Drugs
Sales of Firearms or Drugs (or Drug Paraphernalia) will not be permitted in any instance.
All Vendors must sell products produced or processed themselves. Buy/sell items, items made from kits, and commercially manufactured products are not allowed. We will accept applications for locally sourced and/or made pre-packaged food or beverage items on a case-by-case basis.
Sales Tax & Insurance
Each Vendor is responsible for sales tax and state and federal business licenses and insurance if necessary.
Space Information - Set up and Break down
Main Street Live will open to the public at 5:00 p.m. and will remain open until 8:00 p.m. Vendors may begin setting up at 3:45 p.m. (not before). Set up should be complete by 5:00 p.m. Vendors are expected to promptly breakdown and remove all of their gear and goods at 8:00 p.m. The Executive Director and Event Coordinator will determine space assignments and every effort will be made to remain the same throughout the full season. Assignments will be provided to vendors prior to the first market, and weekly, if needed. Vendors are responsible for breaking down their stalls and picking up after themselves. (This includes all trash and food waste!) Vendors are responsible for providing tables, chairs, and a WHITE 10'x10' canopy/tent. Tents cannot exceed 10'x10'. Vendors are responsible for their property and any loss, damage or theft to their property. Because Main Street Live is held at an outdoor venue, all tables, chairs, tents, etc. must be securely set up throughout the course of the evening. Securely means tents/canopies must be weighted, and tables and chairs must be weighted and out of the way of traffic. There is no electrical supply.
In the event of inclement weather the Executive Director, or the Event Coordinator, will contact each participating vendor to cancel.
Vendor stalls must be staffed at all times by the business owner or an employee of the business.
Main Street Live is a community effort. If vendor-to-vendor or vendor-to-customer disputes cannot be resolved, the Executive Director may be called in to mediate. In this case, the Executive Director’s decision will be final. Grievances may be submitted in writing to the Executive Director at the postal address or email address below.
Main Street Live was created to enhance the Stowe Community. Any misconduct will not be permitted at the Market. Discrimination, illegal behavior or failure to abide by these Guidelines will not be tolerated. A verbal warning will be issued first, followed by expulsion from the Market. Stowe Vibrancy, Inc. reserves the ability to amend these Guidelines as it sees fit to maintain the safety and success of its vendors.
Participation is full-time. Vendors are expected to attend all day of the Market. Vendors who are unable to attend must give proper notification to the Executive Director and Event Coordinator so that their space can be filled. Contact Aimee Green at email@example.com. Those who do not wish to commit can be placed on the sub-list and will be notified if a space should open up.
