SIGN UP FOR OUR EMAIL LIST TO KNOW WHEN APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR FUTURE MARKETS.
+ WHEN IS THE NEXT MARKET?
Our next market will happen in 2021, however we will be hosting a special pop-up shop & online marketplace throughout the 2020 Holiday Season.
+ WHY DO I HAVE TO APPLY?
We have an application process because as much as we would like to include every maker, designer, and artist, we simply cannot. We do our best to curate the market to stay true to our vision and suit the tastes of our customers. Especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and having to adapt several parts of our events model, we are narrowing our plans. Please submit your application, and if you are a good fit & we have availability, we will contact you! This application is ONLY for the 2020 Holiday Season. Future application details will be posted when other opportunities become available.
+ WHAT TYPE OF VENDORS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
We are specifically looking for Tucson-based emerging & established artisans, creatives, makers, and shops with high quality items for sale. Our most successful vendors have an eye for design & detail, a commitment to their craft, a unique point of view, and integrity & professionalism in their business and community. The categories we typically represent are: apparel, body, ceramics, fine art, home goods, jewelry, kids, leather goods, lifestyle, mens, packaged food, paper goods, plants/floral, textiles, and vintage.
+ CAN VENDORS OUTSIDE TUCSON PARTICIPATE?
We love all artists, makers, and small businesses! For our particular pop-up market, we only feature vendors that are residents of Tucson. If you have particular questions about your qualification based on location, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do hope artists, markets, and small businesses from all over join us as guests at the market!
+ HOW DO I BECOME A SPONSOR OF THE MARKET?
Send us a note here to learn more!
+ DO I NEED ANY LICENSES OR PERMITS?
At most of our events, vendor must have their own business retail license or a special event license to sell, however in this unprecedented time, Cultivate Market, LLC is taking on all transactions, licenses, and permitting for the pop-up shop and online marketplace. If you are provided and opportunity to sell directly to consumers as a part of our 2020 Holiday Season, you will need to have a business retail license or special event license to sell and have it present with you at all times.
+ HOW DO I APPLY?
We typically have a rigorous application process and focus on both emerging and established businesses. .
+ IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW?
We are all about pouring back into our local community! As part of our typical vendor agreement, vendors agree 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. Because of the ongoing pandemic and hardship on small businesses and artists, the donation to a non-profit is optional and up to each vendor's discretion. We will still have a Spotlight Non-Profit highlighted.
