The core market is the central section of the Flea at the Downs with permanent tents where our long-term vendors sign up for the season. Most core market (seasonal contract) spaces are 20’x30’ and you may configure your space with your own tent however best suits your vending style. Some vendors build out the entire space, some erect 20’x20’ tents and some use 20’ x 10’ garage tents. Provided it fits within the 20’x 30’ you may keep your vehicle or a trailer at your core market space. A limited number of 10’x30’ “half” spaces are available in the Core Market. They easily accommodate a 10’x20’ tent but if your vehicle is large there might not be room to park by the “half space.” The price for a half-space is exactly half that of a full space.
The details of pricing in the core market are described below. Half spaces are ½ the full space rent. Note that there is special pricing for core market in August only.
