Products & Vendor Selection:

Reserved Rates - Full Season:
In 2016, there are twenty-seven Sundays between May 1 and October 30, but we will charge a flat rate of $200.00 per month. This equates to a total of only $44.44 per Sunday. Despite signing up for the full season, payments can be made in monthly installments (at least 15 days in advance of each month) via our payment page.
Reserved Rates - Weekly:
Arts & Crafts vendors may also choose to sign up for select single Sunday markets. The rate for a weekly reserved space is $65.00 per Sunday. Payments for weekly spaces are due 15 days in advance and can be made via our payment page.
You may apply for our stand-by list if you wish to participate in single Sunday markets in the event that any reserved Vendors cancel. Stand-by vendors are held to the same approval requirements as regular vendors; and should a space become available, will be selected on a first come, serve basis once notified via email of an opening. There is no commitment to participate. Stand-by rates are $75.00 per Sunday. Payments for stand-by vendors are due upon approval and can be made via our payment page.
Cancellations & Refunds:
SoWa Boston must be notified of any cancellations by Wednesday at 12 pm for the upcoming Sunday market. If we are able to replace you from our stand-by list, we will credit you for that week. If you notify us after the deadline, no-show, or if we are unable to fill your space, there will be no refund. Any Vendor that cancels more than once will be subject to having their reserved spaces revoked for the remainder of the season.
The Market must be open at least four hours for you to be charged for that week. If the Market runs less than four hours or if the Market is closed due to bad weather, you will be credited for that Sunday. Bad weather closures will be at the discretion of SoWa Boston, but we will be reasonable in our determination.
Set-Up and Take-Down:
Vendors must supply their own 10 x 10 white tents and related equipment, transport dollies, and displays. Forty pound weights must be used on all tent legs. Vendors must be in place and ready one hour before Market opening at 10 AM. Vendors must break-down and exit the Market area within one hour of the close of the Market at 4 PM. Vendors may not leave until the Market closes, unless given permission by the Market manager. Tent locations will be assigned by SoWa Boston.
