Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at the Galena Marketplace! We offer affordable seasonal and annual fees.
You will receive an email regarding payment information.
Please read all the rules below:
All items must be handmade or grown to be eligible for the market. All items must be made or grown at the address indicated on your application. If you will have items that you did not grow, raise, or create – you must indicate this.
During the Summer Marketplace tables, chairs, and tents must be provided by each vendor. The location does not have any available. There are a limited amount of tables and chairs available during the Winter Marketplace. Please let the Market Manager know if you need to reserve a table. The vendor fee includes space for one standard tent (or 6 foot table if you are applying to the Winter Market). Extra space will be given on a first come, first serve basis. There is a limited amount of electricity on the property. If you need electricity – you must indicate this.
If you are a non-profit, please keep in mind that all vendors that are selling products will be treated the same in regards to vendor fees. Non-profits who wish to give out information only will not be charged a fee, but will be admitted only if space allows.
The application deadline is April 1st for the Summer Market and October 1st for the Winter Market. Due to space, produce and food vendors will be given preference, though we are accepting craft vendors as well. You will be notified of your acceptance via email by April 7th or October 7th. If your application is not accepted, your check will be voided.
Acceptance to this year’s Marketplace will not guarantee acceptance to subsequent year’s space.
If you will be selling meat, honey, eggs, cheese, canned items, baked goods, or any food other than fresh, whole produce, you must provide us with the proper licenses from county, state, and/or federal institutions. If you will be giving out samples of any kind, you must provide us with your sampling license. If you are not sure of what you need, please call the Jo Daviess County Health Department at 815-777-0594.
