Ladner Village Market spots are allocated in 10×10’ increments. Each vendor is responsible for providing their own table, tent, table coverings and anything else required for their display. As this is a rain or shine event, all vendors are required to have either a tent or umbrella to provide both sun protection on hot days and rain protection on the rare times of inclement weather.
Some vendor categories have a limit on the number of market dates that you may select. This helps us to maintain a broad range of products offered within this category and allows the market to bring in some newness each year.
