WE LOVE THE OTTSVILLE MARKET AND LOOK FORWARD TO OUR 5TH SEASON WITH YOU! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO JOINED US ON FRIDAY. RECAP:
Key Points Discussed
1) We are happy to be in our 5th season and continue to have returning vendors and new vendors interested in participating. Discounted rate for vendors who submit our VENDOR FORM: OttsvilleOutdoorVendor2014, insurance and payment received by March 1st.
2) Partners in Promotion
a) Non Profit organizations may schedule a free table to promote their organization and upcoming events.
Sponsorship for market advertising pass it on!
b) $250 Business Sponsor OttsvilleFarmersMarketSponsorship2014 includes free table as needed, featured business description on website and newsletter.
c) $30 Individual Sponsors – Market Friends value the community event and recognize the hard work vendors put in to participate each week. These sponsors are appreciated on the website and show their support with an Ottsville Market lawn sign or contribution towards advertising promo.
Best Practices – it takes a Village (or a market!)
a) Facebook is FREE – vendors will add comments to the market FB Group and FB Page weekly
b) Vendors will encourage weekly attendance at market from their friends, family, and clients
c) CONSISTENCY is KEY. Setting up for each market on time, rain or shine, smiling, and engaging customers makes the market a great experience for all. (Sales diminish significantly when sitting down and texting)
d) Special Event ideas are welcome and may be organized individually or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org to pursue. (Currently working on collaboration with artists, musicians and vineyards)
e) Jerry and Kristin take pride in listening to suggestions and following through on ideas that will benefit the market – speak to us if you have questions.
