MERCHANT REVIEW PROCESS
Due to the high volume of applicants in recent years, we are transitioning to a new process for accepting merchants. We will be accepting merchants in rounds by jury review. Several other large markets follow this process and we feel confident this will help us to continue to improve our market. The jury is comprised of various Junior League members and individuals from the community who will be reviewing prospective merchants and voting upon the various applicants. Accordingly, photographs of your booth and merchandise are required.
The cutoff date to be considered for Round 1 of the jury process is February 15th. All prospective merchants are urged to apply early and will be notified of their application status following the jury process.
Below are some merchant booths from past Holiday Gift Markets.
