Vendors who prepare and serve food on site will pay from $175 to $275 per space.
“I wanted to create a lively outlet for serious makers of unique items for local entrepreneurs who work hard to build their brands,” says Nathan Terrazas, market co-owner. “There are so many talented individuals out there, and we’re bringing them all to one place.” In addition to food and merchandise vendors, artists from One Strange Bird will be on hand, hosting activities and art classes throughout the day.
