Vending FAQs

Market Day May is coming up, and we're kicking the promotion machine into high gear for these last three weeks! Check out the short list of things you can help with below. We'll be back to you with more info in the coming weeks. In the meantime, feel free to send along any questions!

Spread the Word
Remember: nothing that we ever do to promote will ever top word of mouth in getting customers to Market Day. Invite everyone you can: family, friends, coworkers, etc. The more people we all reach, the better sales will be.

We have posters in hand, and we need your help getting them out. There is a digital poster attached, but if you can help us distribute the hard copy posters and fliers, we'll help you out with your booth fee. Any vendor that picks up and hangs six posters (and sends us some quick cell phone snaps of where they end up) will receive a $10 rebate on their booth fee. We will request areas we want to reach: we are very interested in WDM and Ankeny vendors to help us in those areas. Reply to this email to set up a time for poster pick-up.

Flyers and Vendor Badges

There is a vendor badge attached to this email that you can use for social media. There is also a self-printable flyer... they print two per sheet and work great with home laser printers. Take them to your shows, drop them into orders, hang them around town.

Remember that the swag deadline is approaching! We need to have all swag in hand by no later than November 19th. You can mail, OR, you can set up a drop-off with any of us. Email for details. Address below:
