Call for Vendors for 2015 Festival

If you would like to be considered to be a vendor at the Festival, you must have a vendor account set up on the Freret Market website: The Festival is now accepting booth requests from people who would like to be a vendor. To help increase sales for the participating vendors, we have limited the number of both food and non-food vendors accepted to the Festival. Hot food vendors will need to submit your full menu in your booth request. There will be a maximum of 2 food vendors for each duplicate item sold, spaced out at different ends of the Festival. The fee for prepared/hot food vendors is $250. There will be fewer hot food choices at the Festival,…
