We’re getting set up again for market. Might be a little wetter today, but no fear, we have indoor and covered outdoor spaces. There is another event at the Fairgrounds today, so remember that if you park in the south lot off Reservoir Av, close to the fence you are only steps away from the market.
We are ready for market to start and we are hoping you love the new outdoor area conveniently located under cover between the Reservoir Av parking area and Guerber Hall.
We have activities and drawings planned for the market. On opening day only we will be giving away free our new shopping bags with our logo on them. Stop by the information tables right by the main entry.
Also on opening day we will be doing basket drawings as well, so be sure to get your free ticket at the information tables. This year those baskets will be in our shopping bags, so don’t miss your chance to win another one. There will be three drawings, at 10:30, 11:30 and 12:30 (must be present to win).
We have lots of vendors ready to welcome you! Open from 9:00am to 1:00pm every Saturday from January 13th to April 7th at Guerber Hall in the Benton County Fairgrounds.

September 30th is the deadline for returning vendor applications. We will begin to consider new applications in October. Here is everything you need to come sell with us! We have a small number of indoor spaces and now many more outdoor spaces that are in a covered area.
The 2018 season starts in January and we are excited to announce that we will have many more spaces available. If you have been parking in the lot off Reservoir Road, you will recognize the covered area you have passed through to get to our main entrance. This area will now be available for vendor booths. Outside but under cover and dry. We are looking forward to more shopping opportunities for our customers.
To all prospective vendors…………….
To start with thank you for your interest in our market. My first suggestion is to download and read our vendor manual. Then print and start completing your application. Please make sure you include all required licenses, certifications and proof of insurance. If you are an artisan or craft vendor you need to include photos or a web address so that the new vendor committee can jury your product.
If at any point in this process you have a question please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to get you the answer you need.
VERY important — try to have completed applications returned as soon as possible. October 1st we will begin reviewing new vendor applications. Try to have applications in before November 1st because applications received after that date will be reviewed as the committee has time.
New vendors will be juried in the order they arrive. We will notify you when you have been accepted as a member of the market but you will not be given a space assignment until all returning vendors have been assigned their space
NEW this year – the outside vendors (those not cooking) will be under the covered area coming in from the parking lot. Vendors will be assigned a permanent space and be in the same place each week. There will be some additional rules and guidelines for the outside vendors to follow BUT the big news is that you will be under cover and out of the rain
Closer to the start of the Market season you will be receiving a more detailed explanation of changes and refinements to procedures for vendors at this year’s markets. If you are an “outside” vendor you will be receiving more detailed list of procedures and rules that will apply specifically to those spots
If you have any questions or concerns please give me a call at (541)740-0214, or email me email@example.com .
President, Corvallis Indoor Winter Market
Your indoor market board has been busy since last April. We will soon finalize a new market guide for vendors and we are updating our application form and procedures. We will be posting soon!
Also, we are pretty excited as it looks like the Corvallis Indoor Winter Market will be growing next season with more covered spaces available for more vendors. Stay tuned for more information.
The 2018 season will run from January 13 to April 7, 2018.
