Vendor Agreement

berea markers market

fall 2018

Berea Makers Market is held at Russel Acton Folk Center, a property owned and maintained by the City of Berea. The following are ordinances and guidelines we are asking all vendors to abide by:

The City of Berea, and Berea Makers Market, prohibits the sale or display of any items featuring the Confederate flag. We believe it is very important that our fair is welcoming to people of all nationalities, faiths and backgrounds, so we are fully supportive of this City ordinance.

The City of Berea requires that all vendors obtain a business license from the City.
If you don't currently have a Berea business license, the form can be accessed online here, printed and completed at home, and sent to:

212 Chestnut St. Attn: Finance Dept., Berea, KY 40403.

Questions about business license should be directed to the Berea Codes & Planning office at (859)986-8528.

Our target audience includes young families, so we are asking that artists bring items that are appropriate for all ages. We reserve the right to limit any material deemed to be inappropriate, and appreciate your cooperation.

Load in details will be provided in vendor information packet, which we’ll email to accepted vendors on September 19th.

No helium balloons in the Folk Center due to overhead fans!
