Vendors are required to attend free online workshops to learn how to set up their storefront at the virtual fair. VENDOR LAUNCH PARTY
Don’t miss our Kickoff Launch party for all accepted vendors! IMPORTANT DETAILS
Applications are processed weekly starting in September. No more than three businesses can sell a similar product, e.g. slime, bath bombs.
All products must be home-made and not store-bought. We encourage young creatives to build a product and launch from scratch! We also accept service-based businesses, e.g. lawn care, dog walking, custom art. If you are selling food make sure you become familiar with Florida's cottage law
under Escambia County.
Last-minute changes to business plans may not be accepted due to planning and logistics. There is a $20 participation fee
just like a real market. We pay you $10
after the Fair as a "thank you" and reward for launching your business. You must show up and participate in the Fair to receive your $10 rebate.
Once you apply, expect to hear back within 7 business days or the following Monday. The participation fee must be paid within 72 hours of acceptance. If payment is not received by that time, the spot will be forfeited to the next entrepreneur in line due to the high number of expected applicants.
