We cannot wait to bring our community together to shop small this year!
Not only will we fill the HVT lobby will holiday cheer this year, but we’re spilling over into function space at the Courtyard next door! Food trucks, warm beverages, a scavenger hunt to win an overnight at HVT, and an incredible line up of vendors will make stopping by both spaces worth it.
DJ will be spinning the hits! We’ll be slinging festive drinks from the Juniper bar and debuting our new seasonal Irish Coffee bar. Grab food from food trucks.
We cannot wait to see you.
Our lineup isn’t locked in for 2023! Here’s a sample of vendors from last years’ event. if you’re a vendor and would like to apply for this year, you can do so here.
Where exactly is the market?
If you walk into any of the Hotel Vermont lobby level entrances, you’ve arrived. The market flows through the lobby, Juniper, and event spaces on the first floor of the hotel. This year, we’re expanding into the Courtyard Marriott next door for our biggest market yet! Head down the stairs from the Juniper terrace and cross the driving circle to the main entrance of the Courtyard. Take two rights (past the front desk, stopping by our friends at Bleu along the way) and find 25 more vendors in the Courtyard’s Harbor Room.
If I’m driving, where can I park?
We’d recommend parking in the city owned garage next to Hotel Vermont! Parking is pay-by-plate via the ParkMobile app or the kiosk in the garage. We will not allow parking in the circle between the hotels, as that will be needed for food trucks and a speedy vendor set-up/breakdown before and after the market.
Besides shopping, what else will be at the holiday market?
We’ll set a merry mood with a live vinyl set from a local DJ. Explore the market with our digital scavenger hunt which, upon completion, enters you to win an overnight stay at HVT. Other prizes to win? Stop by the raffle booth for an array of local prizes, from which all proceeds will be donated to a local non-profit. Enjoy festive sips from the Juniper Bar and an Irish Coffee Bar, sample sips and snacks from Bleu Northeast Kitchen, and good eats from local food trucks.
Will there be food and drinks available?
Yes! In addition to 2 food trucks, we’ll be slinging festive cocktails for the Juniper Bar alongside an Irish Coffee bar at Hotel Vermont. Next door enjoy complimentary samples from Bleu Northeast Kitchen. Explore vendors also offering warm beverages – MOCO, ALKAME Co, and Brio Coffeeworks.
Are you still accepting vendors?
Yes! Apply here.
Though we wish we could offer every hardworking maker, artist, or small business a spot, we are simply limited by space! A team from Hotel Vermont builds our lineup based on quality of product and diversity of vendors. Please understand that we seek to honor the relationships we’ve built over time by welcome back returning vendors, while also offering opportunities to expose new and growing small businesses we haven’t worked with before. If we cannot offer you a spot at the market this year, we hope to help expose your work through our annual holiday gift guides. Thanks you for your understanding!
Please complete applications by Sunday, September 24. We will release the final vendor lineup during the week of October 1. Look out for communication confirming your participation around then!
