WHAT IS THE RITUAL MARKET?

 

HOW DO I BECOME A VENDOR?

HOW DO YOU SELECT VENDORS?

 

THE RITUAL MARKET IS A HIGH VIBE, ECLECTIC MARKET HOSTED IN CENTRAL MAINE OFFERING A CURATED SELECTION OF HERBAL, HANDCRAFTED, AND METAPHYSICAL GOODS SOURCED WITH INTENTION. WE GATHER MULTIPLE TIMES A YEAR TO OFFER A SUPPORTIVE, WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT TO CONNECT AND SHARE OUR PRODUCTS WITH THE PUBLIC.

VENDORS ARE ACCEPTED BY APPLICATION ONLY. 

APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR EACH MARKET A FEW MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT DATE FOR A FEW DAYS AND THEN ARE CLOSED FOR REVIEW AND VENDOR SELECTION. WE ALWAYS ANNOUNCE 1-2 WEEKS BEFORE APPLICATIONS OPEN TO ALLOW APPLICANTS TIME TO PREPARE AND PLAN. DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF APPLICANTS, WE LIKE TO FOCUS ON ONE MARKET AT A TIME AND TYPICALLY DON'T OPEN APPLICATIONS FOR MULTIPLE MARKETS AT ONE TIME.

VENDORS ARE ACCEPTED BY APPLICATION ONLY. 

EACH SINGLE VENDOR APPLICATION IS CAREFULLY REVIEWED AND RESPONDED TO VIA EMAIL. WE TRULY APPRECIATE THE TIME, ENERGY, AND ENTHUSIASM PUT BEHIND APPLYING TO OUR EVENTS. UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT EVERYONE WHO APPLIES. WE TYPICALLY DO HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF BOOTH SPOTS AVAILABLE - AND WE ALSO WANT TO ENSURE WE CAN PROVIDE THE FOOT TRAFFIC AND CUSTOMER BASE TO SUPPORT THE VENDORS WE DO ACCEPT. WHILE THIS MARKET IS A PASSION PROJECT FOR US - OUR VENDORS DO RELY ON THESE EVENTS AS A SOURCE OF INCOME AND MY VENDOR'S SUCCESS IS A PRIORITY. LASTLY, WE DO TRY TO LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF VENDORS WITHIN EACH ARTISTIC CATEGORY FOR SIMILAR REASONS. WE DO OUR BEST TO ACCEPT NEW VENDORS EACH MARKET, BUT WE ALSO DO VALUE LOYALTY AND PAST PARTICIPATION IN OUR MARKETS! OUR LINE UP IS ALWAYS CHANGING FROM EVENT TO EVENT, SO I ALWAYS ENCOURAGE VENDORS TO REAPPLY TO FUTURE MARKETS!

WE TYPICALLY AIM TO HOST 3-4 MARKETS A YEAR, ONE WITH EACH SEASON. TYPICALLY WE TAKE THE END OF DECEMBER THROUGH APRIL OFF.

AT THIS TIME, NO.

WE ARE TAKING TIME AFTER THE DECEMBER 16TH MARKET TO REST, RECHARGE, AND PLAN. WE HAVE A LOT OF IDEAS FOR NEXT YEAR'S MARKETS! ALL UPDATES WILL BE POSTED TO YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS!

HOW OFTEN DO YOU HAVE MARKETS?
