      • The date, time & location
      • The items to bring with you as a prospective vendor
      • The specific categories open to new vendors (category examples include apparel, bath & body, baby, jewelry, paintings, photography, specialty/processed foods, wood, etc.).

    • Does Redmond Saturday Market accept one-time vendors mid-season?

Please visit the information booth for an application and rules handout for these two days. There are age restrictions for this event, and applications are only available at the information booth.
