When can I apply?
Applications open up at the beginning of the month for the following month.
The applications usually remain open for 5-7 days.

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.

Why have I not been accepted?
There may be several reasons...
1.  The total number of vendor booths is capped (this is to help facilitate sales for all vendors).
2. We try to have a wide variety of products (i.e. We do not want 10 vendors selling chocolate covered crickets).
3. Your product may 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).
Antiques
Vintage
Vintage Clothing
Food

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 shy 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).

Is there parking?
Lansdowne Park
Underground parking is available on site (for vehicles that normally fit in underground parking lots!).
Parking is $1.50 each 30 minutes ($3.00 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.

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.

ATM?
Yes. There are ATM's onsite.
