COOKEVILLE – Applications are now being accepted from makers and businesses for vendor booths for the Made Here Market to be held on Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. along Cedar Street in downtown Cookeville. The final date for applications is Feb. 27. All vendors will be required to show proof that they make the products that will be sold at their booth and that they meet certain quality standards.
Made Here Market is a celebration of entrepreneurship. It is an opportunity to showcase the creativity of artists, craftsmen and innovators from across the Upper Cumberland. All products must be locally made, meaning no Avon, etc. is allowed.
Local food trucks and live entertainment will be available throughout the event for your dining and listening pleasure.
Event facilities include a large wedding-style tent that will accommodate 20 vendors. There will also be space available along Cedar Ave. and between the Biz Foundry and Red Silo for 30 additional vendors.
Vendor spots are filling up rapidly and interested vendors are encouraged to contact event organizers quickly to secure one of the remaining spots.
For questions or to secure a vendor booth, contact Ashley Michael, event coordinator, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
