The Wildlight Market Place offers an array of food, art, produce, entertainment and important community education information and you have come to the right page for vendor information. Market artisans create and sell handmade, handcrafted, unique and one of a kind items. This is not a flea market, a re-seller’s market, nor a place for antiques, mass merchandise, or imported items. These are hand-crafted, homegrown, and individually produced products that are truly talents of each given trade. Whether a butcher, a baker, or a candle stick maker, these are the best of the best artisans in our area.
Applications for New Vendors are open and all applications are completed online by going to Vendor Applications. You will be asked to submit images of your craft and your workspace so we can ensure our customers, that products are crafted in your workspace and are not mass produced. Please send images as instructed, do not simply send links or addresses to your online sales studio.
