Weekly Maker's Market in the North Lot of The Apple Barn

Print Story | Email Story
BENNINGTON, Vt. — A new maker's market is coming to Bennington. 
It will be held in the North Lot of The Apple Barn at 604 US Route 7 South on Sundays from 12 pm - 4 pm weekly, starting on May 5, 2024. Admission is free and open to the public, and parking is available in the South Lot.
This market is spearheaded by Jenny Dewar, and all vendors are welcome. 
Dewar previously initiated a Pop-Up Shop in Downtown Bennington for the Better Bennington Corporation, which was well received. Following the discontinuation of the pop-ups, Dewar sought another avenue for vendors to personally sell their merchandise. Some of these small business owners aspire to establish their own brick-and-mortar stores in the future, while others rely solely on festivals and markets. 
"I am grateful to Sarah for offering the perfect space for this new venture," said Dewar. "I have developed personal relationships with these vendors and thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere. The Apple Barn is a stunning shop in a prime location for both catching the attention of drive-by traffic and drawing devotees, both local and from afar."
While the future of the Bennington Farmer's Market seems uncertain, it did not influence the creation of this new market. However, Dewar is open to food vendors during their transition period.
This non-juried festival has space for about 15 vendors, who will rotate weekly. Discounts are available for signing up for multiple dates in advance, with no commitment required for the entire season at this time. Dewar has waived the vendor fee for the first event to attract new vendors and ensure a full market on Day One.
Vendor applications are available via email request (orchardairllc@gmail.com) or through the following link: [Vendor Application Link](https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ls6ouJLBBMR-mm7FTq0iL_UHEZf9_WNC/view?usp=drive_link)
