Read below for information on our upcoming jury event.

  1. When - April 2 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
    Applicants should arrive by 1:30 at the latest, please do not arrive before 11:00.
    All applicants must wear a mask.

  3. Who - All crafts and artwork must be handmade in Washington state by the vendor themselves.
    All produce must be grown in Washington state by the vendor (important note for Farmers below).
    All processed foods must be processed in Washington state by the vendor. No reselling or commercial kits are allowed.
    All juried crafts and artwork must be created by the artist/small business that is applying.

    If you are applying with a consumable product, please note that in addition to King County Public Health rules, RSM has additional rules about selling anything that the public consumes. If you are accepted with a consumable product, you will be required to follow all rules from both King County Public Health as well as Redmond Saturday Market.

    The All Ready-to-Eat Food & Drink/Lunch Items category is closed. We are not accepting any new ready-to-eat hot or cold lunch items sold by a concessionaire. If you are unsure whether your consumable product is eligible for this year’s market, send an email to info@RedmondSaturdayMarket.org.

    Keep in mind that our market stays true to a grassroots ideology and helps new businesses get a start at Redmond Saturday Market – this precludes more established businesses from joining RSM.
  4. What -  Redmond Saturday Market is seeking to add a variety of high-quality, new products to our vendor community for the 2022 season.
  5. Note for Farmers - We do not screen farmers at our annual screening event. If you are a farmer please send an email to info@redmondsaturdaymarket.org. There is a list of requirements to sell as a farmer at RSM.

Bring with you:

  • $25 check, made out to Redmond Saturday Market (this is your jury fee)
  • 2 color photos of your product and 1 photo of your booth set up (if you have had a booth display before)
  • Samples of the product you wish to have screened. If you are accepted as a vendor, only products that have been screened at this event will be allowed to be sold at RSM  (example: if you only jury bird houses, you will not be able to sell greeting cards).

You will fill out an application on site, they are not available on line. This jury event is the only time/place to apply and be screened for the 2022 season.

If you are unable to attend the Screening Event personally, you may have a representative screen your products for you.

Your products will be screened based on originality, quality/workmanship, price and vendor availability with consideration given to balancing types of crafts for this year's market.

Final decisions will be made by our board, and you will receive an email on April 14th notifying you of your status.   If accepted, you can expect to pay a $100 annual membership fee and a $50 one-time maintenance fee for new vendors.

Additional Info 

 Selection of vendors is based on a point system for originality, workmanship/quality, price, and vendor availability with preference given to existing members who are adding a new category. Your score will not be disclosed to you.  
               
Redmond Saturday Market does not allow multiple businesses to combine as one vendor in a booth. This means that if you plan to jury with another artist and share a booth, each of you will need to be accepted individually, each of you must pay all the initiation fees, and each of you will pay your own weekly booth fee. We strongly recommend that each person juries on their own.  


All juried work must be created by the artist who is applying. We do not allow family members to sell other family member’s work unless that artist has applied and been accepted as a vendor at our market, and is living in Washington state. Each person must be juried with their own artwork.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! Thanks, and the best of luck to you!

Market Season

 First Saturday in May through last Saturday in October for a total of 26 weeks.
Vendors are not required to participate every Saturday, but are encouraged to participate at least six times during the season.

                The 9:00 am start time begins when the opening bell is rung. All vendors must arrive no later than 8:15 am and must be set up by 8:45 am.
