VENDOR – Invitation
REGISTRATION OPENS NOVEMBER 1 2020
The WCYR is proud to announce The Bookshelf @ the Market, date to be determined, 8:30 am – 1:30 pm. We are excited to partner with the Town of Newmarket and the Farmers Market on this day to celebrate books and reading.
We are eager to invite local and Indie Authors, Book Sellers, Publishers, Craftspeople, and Writing Communities to participate in this extraordinary event.
Sales begin in the main hall of the Lions Community Centre at 8:30 am and conclude at 1:30 pm. Load-in for participating vendors will take place between 7:00 am – 8:00 am. There is free Wi-Fi in the building. As the Farmers Market opens at 8am, we are looking to provide a ‘valet service’ for dropped off supplies to be watched while you find parking. More information on parking on the LOCATION page.
Our Readings will take place outside in the Market this year, showcasing local authors between 10am – 1:30pm. List of Readers to be revealed April 2021.
We will also have a dollar-draw, spot prizes, free scavenger hunt, literary cafe, and more!
Tables at the event are 6 x 2.4 feet in size.
FULL TABLE = $30
DOUBLE-TABLE = $50
WCYR Members “in good standing” will receive a $10 discount off the total purchase for their tables.
Returning Vendors will receive a $5 discount (cannot be combined with the WCYR Members discount).
There are no half-tables. One author/publisher/bookstore per table.
All vendors are required to be authors, publishers, new book stores, or reading/writing related organizations, though we do have a limited number of non-book related tables. Sorry, we are not accepting applications from used book sellers.
We are a PG rated event. Any explicit material sold must be done so in a way that is not offensive to the general public.
Please CONTACT the Vendor Coordinator if you have questions or concerns regarding your saleability.
