Vendor Info

The Market welcomes vendors selling produce and handmade food items and crafts. Our goal is to feature local farmers and artisans and because of this, we are committed to a producer-only market. 

NewTown Macon strives to create the best market experience possible for both vendors and attendees. The policies below have been developed to achieve that goal.

To become a vendor, please read the information below and then fill out the vendor application online. 

The application for the 2022 market season is now open! After reading the policies, scroll to the bottom of this screen to apply. The deadline to apply to be considered for the entire season is March 25, 2022. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis after that date. 

Products and Vendors

The Market will strive to maintain, though will not guarantee, a 50-30-20 ratio of vendors: 50% fresh produce and meat, 30% handmade food items such as jellies, jams, baked goods, etc., and 20% crafts and non-food items. This ratio will guide the acceptance of vendors at the Market.

No vendors are allowed to resell products purchased in bulk from retail grocery stores. Vendors may source produce from other farmers located within the state of Georgia as long as they show verification of where they purchased the product and maintain a 50-50 ratio of items produced by the vendor and purchased items. Vendors who violate these guidelines will be asked to leave The Market and will not receive a refunded vendor fee.

NewTown Macon reserves the right to deny any vendor application at our discretion. Vendors representing direct sales companies (Paparazzi Jewelry, Pampered Chef, Stella & Dot, etc.) are not allowed and their applications will be denied.

Attendance Policy

Due to the high interest in this market, accepted vendors are expected to attend every market they select on their application. Vendors who miss a market without notifying NewTown Macon in advance will NOT be allowed to attend any markets for the rest of the season. Market vendors who miss more than two markets, even with notification of their absence, will not be allowed to participate in The Market.

Vendors are expected to be ready and set up by the start time of The Market and remain set up until the end time of The Market. Vendors should arrive with enough time to complete their set up process by 11am and have enough product to sell until 3pm. Vendors who do not adhere to the start and end times will not be allowed to participate.


If needed, power will be supplied on a first-come, first-served basis. Power sources are limited and will ONLY be provided to vendors who require power for the sale/display of their products (i.e. coolers for food products, machines for customizations, etc.). 

Vendors are encouraged to bring battery-powered lights and fans if needed. Power will not be supplied for these items.


Vendors are responsible for collecting payment for their products. EBT/SNAP, tokens, or any sort of secondary payment will NOT be accepted at the market. It is up to vendors to determine the methods of payment they prefer to collect.

Vendor Fees

The fee to participate is $10 per market. Fees can be paid in advance with a credit card or by cash on the day of The Market.

Rain/Inclement Weather Policy

Inclement weather decisions will be made 24 hours in advance of the market. Refunds will not be given for vendor fees paid in advance.


The Market will feature live music, demos, and programming to encourage more attendees to patronize participating vendors. NewTown Macon will work with partner organizations to offer cooking demonstrations, craft activities led by artists, and libraries without walls. These efforts will help create an experience that will engage most segments of the population and make the market more of an event.
