apply to be a vendor
"Ritual Market is a high vibe, eclectic market hosted in central Maine offering a curated selection of metaphysical, herbal, handcrafted, and intentionally sourced goods. We gather multiple times a year to offer a supportive, welcoming environment to connect and share our products with the public!"
This is a free event to the public and all ages are welcome. we strive to create an inclusive, collaborative, and safe space for vendors and consumers alike.
Vendor applications are open from Thursday, September 21st at 6pm to Thursday, September 28th at midnight. Due to the expected influx of applications along with the shortened timeframe on our end - applications will begin being responded to as soon as Sunday, September 24. This also helps spread out the response load over the week. We do only have roughly 40 spots available for this market, and we recognize this will mean a very competitive application process, so please be as detailed as possible with your applications EVEN if you are a prior vendor.
While applications are not first come first serve, we do appreciate applying as early as you are able. This helps me work through applications at a steady pace early on.
Vendor Applications are reviewed and chosen based on many factors, including but not limited to:
☾ PAST VENDING EXPERIENCE WITH RITUAL MARKET + OTHER EVENTS
☾ UNIQUENESS OF PRODUCTS OFFERED - WE DO OUR BEST TO AVOID TOO MANY VENDORS WITHIN THE SAME NICHE
☾ HOW WELL YOUR BUSINESS' BOOTH FITS WITH THE MARKET'S THEME
☾ YOU HAVE AN ESTABLISHED BUSINESS WITH A WEBSITE, SOCIAL MEDIA HANDLES, OR A CATALOG
We take time to carefully review each application we receive and are truly grateful for each and every inquiry. Our markets would not be what they are without our vendors. We will respond to every single applicant regardless of our decision. We recognize the way we run this market is different than other markets - and if you feel that it’s not a good fit for you, that’s okay! But please refrain from sending any negative responses to denial emails - that will result in a permanent ban from the markets. It cost nothing to be kind.
This vendor application is for the Ritual Market event taking place Sunday, November 19th from 10am-3pm at the Augusta Armory in Augusta, ME. This is an indoor event.
The booth fees for this event are as follows:
Standard 10x10ft booth: $125 // XL booth 15x15ft: $150
<< PLEASE READ: 10X10FT CANOPIES ARE REQUIRED EVEN THOUGH THIS IS AN INDOOR EVENT. THIS HELPS DISTINGUISH EACH BOOTH FROM EACH OTHER AND HELPS THE INSIDE OF THE ARMORY APPEAR MORE AESTHETICALLY PLEASING TO THE SHOPPER'S EYE. WE APOLOGIZE IF THIS IS INCONVENIENT BUT IT HAS WORKED GREAT FOR PREVIOUS INDOOR MARKETS. >>
Vendors are required to bring all of their own tables, chairs, displays, and anything else they need that day.
SPLIT/SHARED BOOTHS ARE ALLOWED IF DISCLOSED ON THE APPLICATION
