we value the artists, shops, creatives, and small business owners in Tucson, and we are excited about the possibility of featuring you!
+ When and where is the next market?
Our next market will take place in December 2017.
+ How many spots are there?
We have approximately 40 vendor spots of varying sizes for each market.
+ Why do I have to apply?
We have an application process because as much as we would like to include every craft and artist, we simply cannot. We do our best to curate the market to stay true to our vision and suit the tastes of those attending! Please submit your application, and if you are a good fit & we have availability, we will contact you!
+ What type of vendors are you looking for?
We are specifically looking for local artists & emerging or established shops with high quality items for sale, including:
• One-of-a-kind jewelry
• Re-purposed furniture & lighting fixtures
• Hand-crafted housewares
• Locally designed apparel & accessories
• Local watercolor or print artists
• Affordable artwork, handcrafted goods...and much more!
+ What is the fee to participate?
We offer a booth & two sizes of tables to choose from. An 8x8' booth is $95. An individual 6’ table is $85. A shared spot at a 6’ table is $45. Shared tables will be split so each vendor has 3’ for displays.
+ How do I become a sponsor of the market?
Visit our sponsor page for more information.
+ Do I need any licenses or permits?
Because this is a public event, each vendor must have either a business retail license or a special event license to sell. To find the business license application, click here. If you are selected as a vendor, please have your permits with you at the day of the market.
+ How do I apply?
Applications for our 2017 Holiday Pop-Up Market will be announced in the fall.
+ What kinds of materials do I need to bring?
Show off your items with a unique, modern, and professional display. Vendors are responsible for supplying all of their own display items. If you purchase a booth & don't have a table, we can provide one for a small rental fee.
+ What is the cancellation policy?
We offer a 50% refund upon emailed notification up until three weeks prior to the market. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for cancellations within three weeks of the scheduled market due to the administrative work already done by this time.
+ How are spaces assigned?
Space assignments are at the sole discretion of the CULTIVATE Tucson team. Booth location and detailed day-of-logistics will be sent out via email to confirmed vendors the week prior to the market.
+ Is there anything else I need to know?
We are all about pouring back into our local community! As part of our vendor agreement, you are agreeing to donate a percentage of your profits to a non-profit in Tucson. To maximize our giving impact, our team chooses one spotlight non-profit recipient for each event that all vendors have the option to donate to at the end of market day. In addition, vendors can donate to any non-profit of their choosing! We do not handle the transaction for the donation. This is done directly through the non-profits, which means the donation is tax-deductible and must be completed the day of the event once sales are totaled. For more info on our current spotlight non-profit & other details, visit our Giving Back page. This is something we feel strongly about and is central to our market's success.
