Vendor Space Types

As the Greensburg Night Market has grown, we have added a variety of vendors. To meet vendor and attendee needs we have different Vendor Space Types available for 2023.

*due to the nature of the location of the Greensburg Night Market as well as set up, traffic and the fact the market is on a 1 way street, we are unable to give every accepted vendor an assigned spot in their designated block. For 2023, there will be a limited amount of assigned spaces, all other spaces will be unassigned in a vendors designated block.

Regular Vendor Space – This vendor space is 10×10 and is located on 1 of the blocks in the market.

Insurance and Permit Requirements

All vendors must provide proof of liability insurance in order to participate in the Greensburg Night Market. Vendors are not required to have insurance at the time of application but must show proof of insurance before the first market a vendor is scheduled for.

Food Vendors must have the proper permits and are required to be with you at each market. Foods must be prepared in a Health Department licensed kitchen and all rules and regulations required must be followed.

Vendor Set Up

Accepted Vendors will receive a set up email the Monday before each market. All vendors are responsible for their own set up, which includes but is not limited to, tents, tent weights, tables, chairs, displays, products, garbage and signage.

Set up goes as follows: pull into assigned block, talk to a staff member for a space, pull your vehicle off of the road into parking as far as you can, quickly unload, move you vehicle out of the market are to park, come back to set up.

No vehicles are permitted in the market area during the duration of the market. All vehicles must be out of the market area by 5pm.

If your products require refrigeration or something similar. Please email us before applying so we can see if we can accommodate you.

Set up for the Greensburg Night Market is fast and requires vendors to move very quickly for unloading. If you believe you are unable to unload and set up in a timely manner, please do not apply.

Vendor Selection

Vendor acceptance is determined by the Greensburg Night Market director and staff and are selected based on the following:

  • Vendor Type (we do not permit a large number of the same vendor type per market)
  • Products and Product Quality
  • Vendor Social Media (It is very important to GNM that our vendors have a great social media presence. We ask that all vendors post on social that they will be at the market. This is an important part of the selection process.)
  • Vendor Branding
  • Vendor Availability

Vendor Waitlist

Vendors not accepted will be placed on our waitlist. It a space opens at a market, we will email vendors from our waitlist to fill them.

Vendor Acceptance Notification

All accepted vendors will receive an email by March 5 with any dates they are accepted for. In that email will be a Vendor Terms and Conditions packet that must be signed and returned to us by March 15. Failure to confirm acceptance, reply to the email and not return the packet will forfeit the vendor dates assigned.

Once we receive a vendors confirmation, vendors will be send a Vendor Fee Invoice. 

Vendor Fees

All vendor fees for the 2023 season will be due no later than April 15, 2023. All vendors will receive a Vendor Fee Invoice that can be paid via credit/debit card or by mailing a check.

Vendors who pay after the due date will be charged a $30 late fee. Any vendors who have not paid their vendor invoices by the first market of the season will forfeit their vendor spaces.

Market Cancellations 

The Greensburg Night Market is rain or shine, unless there is extreme weather the market will not be canceled. There are no refunds for weather cancelation.

Unfortunately, we do not refund for cancellations if a vendor has to cancel. Vendors can transfer their space to another market in the same season if there is available space for that type of vendor. Vendors cannot transfer to another season.

Market Attendance

We have seen great growth of the Greensburg Night Market and averaged 5000 attendees per market in 2022. We are expecting that number to increase in 2023.

It is important to GNM that all vendors are prepared for a crowd of that size. If you believe you are unable to accommodate or work in a very fast paced crowd, please do not apply.

Application Fee

The Greensburg Night Market has implemented a vendor application and processing fee of $15 per vendor for 2023. This fee is non refundable and does not guarantee a space for any date for the Greensburg Night Market.
