RULES & REGULATIONS
When you submitted your Application, you acknowledged having read and reviewed the linked Williamsburg Vendor Space Rental Agreement (the “Vendor Agreement”) and Williamsburg Rules and Regulations (the “Rules and Regulations”), which set forth the terms and conditions applicable to vendors at the Williamsburg market, i.e. operating hours, permitted merchandise and onsite services. The Vendor Agreement and Rules and Regulations shall automatically become a binding legal agreement between you and A&F upon your acceptance of this offer by your payment of the Space Rental Fee. Do Not Pay The Space Rental Fee If You Do Not Agree To Be Bound By The Terms Of The Vendor Agreement And To Rent Booth Space For The Term.
You will receive a confirmation e-mail within forty-eight (48) hours of payment of the Space Rental Fee. This e-mail will confirm your use of an assigned space during the term. We make the floor plan a few days prior to each weekend based on the particular mix of vendors booked. We will do our best to accommodate booth requests, but do not guarantee a particular type of space or location at the market.
LOAD IN / LOAD OUT
Office Hours We hold office hours at the market every Thursday from 12pm - 5pm. If you are participating in the market on a Saturday, you may come on Thursday of that week to begin set-up. We highly encourage using this time to make your booth look as good as possible. We hear time and again from vendors that a great setup is key to a good experience at the market. If you are only participating on a Sunday, you may stop by to see your assigned space and plan the set-up on Thursday, though you may not begin setting up until Sunday morning.
Load In Each weekend day, vendors can arrive as early as 9am to begin setup. We open our doors to the public at 10am and expect all vendors to be ready to sell at that time. If you are late, we will invoice you $25.
Load Out The market closes to the public at 7pm. Everyone must remain open until 7pm. If you are selling with us on the next market day, you can leave your booth set-up when you leave. We suggest covering it with a plastic sheet. If you are not selling with us on the next market day, please begin packing out no earlier than 7pm and take all belongings with you when you leave the market.
Lighting You are not required to bring your own lighting, but many vendors find that a few choice spotlights/clip lights/lamps are useful to their display. We are very conscious of the market’s energy efficiency. Vendors are requested to make their power requirements known prior to set-up and are urged to employ low-watt/energy-saving light bulbs wherever possible to avoid damage to the building’s electrical wiring and equipment. A&F may request that certain equipment not be used at its own discretion.
Restrooms There are two vendor restrooms located at the market, one on each side of the market.
ATM We have an ATM on site.
Internet We have a WIFI network on site, and we will provide you with the name and password when you arrive.
Our marketing mix and promotion of the market includes elements such as PR, advertising, social and more. But we know that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts - in other words, everyone knows people with whom to share and broadcast information. We create flyers, invites and actively populate our social tags to give you the tools to promote the market and your participation in it.
We are preparing 300 gift bags for VIPs & Influencers -- this is a great opportunity to promo your brand further than this weekend! Think about including a discount code or free sample and your contact info. If you are interested, please let us know firstname.lastname@example.org. The latest to send us your material is February 15th.
Vendor may cancel its scheduled booth operations on specified rental dates by providing written notice of cancellation to GreenHopping no later than 12:00 p.m. EST on the Saturday of the weekend prior to the first day of the scheduled Term (i.e. 7 days in advance). If proper cancellation notice is provided by Vendor, GreenHopping will extend credit(s) for use by Vendor within three (3) months of the original Term commencement date subject to scheduling by A&F, within A&F’s sole discretion; provided however, that such credits shall automatically expire if not used within the three-month time period. Credits may not be used in November or December. Vendor and A&F may schedule another date to use the credit(s) via e-mail. If Vendor fails to provide sufficient notice of cancellation, GreenHopping is not required to reimburse any part of the Space Rental Fee to vendor and no credit(s) will be issued.

Yes. All vendors are required to stay until the market closes to the public at 7pm.

If you're interested in selling on Sunday too, please let us know as soon as possible on Saturday. We will aim to accommodate you, if space is available.
What is the typical price point?
Price points vary depending on the type of product, but we suggest having a wide range of price points in order to appeal to different customers.
Will I have time to shop the market?
Of course. Towards the end of the market day when foot traffic dies down (after 6:30pm), you can browse the market, meet your fellow vendors, and see all of the great merchandise they have to offer.
