VENDOR FAQ's

How do I become a vendor at one of your markets?
Sign up to our mailing list to hear about upcoming markets, vendor calls and application information! We also always announce this info on Instagram, so be sure you're following us there: @local.love.co

I've applied to your market but didn't get in. Should I bother applying again?
Y E S !!! Please do apply again. There are many reasons why vendors don't get accepted, but mostly it comes down to the fact that we want each vendor to be spotlighted and have a unique quality at each market. We try to avoid having similar makers at the same market, not only so our patrons have a variety to shop from, but also so our vendors have equal opportunity. With that being said, there is room for everyone! If you didn't get in to one market, we will do our best to get you in to another.

Do you charge an entrance fee for patrons?
No! Our markets are always free for people to come shop! We believe in making it as easy as possible for our guests to visit us, and to make shopping local accessible for all!

What is your cancellation policy for vendors?
All vendors are required to pay a $50 non-refundable deposit at the point of acceptance. If a vendor cancels with more than 30 days prior to the market date, they will receive their vendor fees back less the $50 deposit. If they cancel with less than 30 days of the market date, no refund will be issued.

OUTDOOR MARKETS will ideally take place rain or shine. Because we are planning outdoor events in Alberta, we know all 4 seasons can happen in a short period of time so we do expect vendors to be prepared for anything.
If, before setup, there is extreme weather and it's not safe to have the market take place, Local Love will cancel and refund your vendor fees minus the $50 deposit.
If a vendor does set up, and then decides to take their booth down due to weather, there will be no refund in vendor fees.
If you choose not to participate due to weather, but the market is still going on, there will be no refund in vendor fees.

Do I need insurance as a vendor?
We do require that all vendors have their own insurance in place. This can look like your annual small business insurance (Commercial General Liability Coverage), or a 1 day event insuance. We, the event holders, do have our own insurance in place, but our insurance requires that all vendors have their own in place as well. We recommend speaking to your own insurance broker to determine why and what you need.
