What is the Application Process?
If you are on the vendor email list - you will receive an email when we are accepting applications for the next market.
If you are accepted, we will send you an email with payment instructions.
Please note - only participating vendors will be notified.
I joined the vendor email list but I didn’t receive an email notification##!??
If you are on the list, then you definitely DID receive a notification. Might be in a JUNK or PROMOTIONS or TRASH folder. The best way to get the email delivered directly into your inbox is to add this email to your “contacts list”: email@example.com
Why have I not been accepted?
There may be several reasons...
1. If you participate in other events/markets at Lansdowne Park or nearby venues like Carleton University., your product becomes less of an attraction to draw customers to 613flea.
2. 613flea gives priority to vendors who have an online presence. This can mean a website and/or a good social
media presence. Why? Because 613flea counts on vendors to help promote the event. When customers can
discover your product online it’s good for you and for 613flea!
3. We try to have a wide variety of products (i.e. We do not want 10 vendors selling chocolate covered crickets).
4. Your product may just not be a good fit with 613flea (i.e. your product may not be compatible with the overall
retail mix at 613flea).
What can I sell?
Crafts - locally made and sold by the Artisan
Products that you have created or designed (these can be manufactured products).
Food - VERY IMPORTANT -if you are selling, sampling or serving any food items - CLICK here.
Can I demonstrate what I do?
We love you! Yes, please, please do. If you are you an artist-please make art, a maker please, ah, make. You get the idea. Demonstrating helps engage shoppers with your product!
Open flame and/or frying?
No open flame or frying inside the Aberdeen Pavilion.
Any tips about selling?
As a matter of fact we do.
1. Price your product (people are often reluctant to ask).
2. Brand your product - have your name out front and centre (business cards are super cheap these days).
3. If you are using just one table - set it close to the aisle (people don't always want to "step into" a booth).
4. Most people are a bit shy when browsing. Just be friendly and say something!!! A simple “hi” can break an
Is there parking?
Underground parking is available on site (for vehicles that normally fit in underground parking lots!).
Weekend parking rates are $2.00 each 30 minutes ($4.00 hour) with a $20 daily maximum.
Larger vehicles will need to find parking off-site.
When do I find out which booth space I am in?
The Thursday before the market (i.e. 2 days before).
Where do I unload?
Unloading is done from outside the building. There is no unloading schedule.
TIP: Buying a hand cart sure save a lot of time! Different shapes and sizes - here is an example of one.
Are direct sales vendors* allowed?
No. Not at this time.
*Definition: The products sold through direct sales are often not found in typical retail locations, which means finding a distributor or rep is the only method to buy the products or services. These are products that you have had no role in creating.
Yes. There are ATM's onsite.
