FALL MAKER INFORMATION
We’re so happy you’re interested in joining us for our upcoming market! Our Fall Market will take place on Sunday, October 6th at our *new location* – the Victoria Gardens Cultural Center in Rancho Cucamonga!!
We wanted to create a market that celebrated the handmade community – whether that is wood signs, hand-poured candles, organic skincare, or hand-cut accessories, we are open to it all. While we are also interested in vintage/up-cycled items, please know we don’t accept any direct sales and are limiting the amount of certain products so we keep things fresh.
Our fall market will have around 60 spaces available with three different options of booths. We ask that you have some type of website or social media that allows us to see your brand/products as that will greatly help us decide if you’re a good fit for PSM.
Below is all the information you’ll need to apply to be a maker for Poppi Seed Market. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Application Fee: We require a $15 non-refundable application fee – for new makers only – that will be credited to your booth fee, if you are accepted. Example: you pick a 6-foot table space, you pay your application fee of $15, you are accepted, you only have to the pay your booth fee balance of $110 for a total of $125. For returning makers only, your booth fees will be discounted by $15, if you are accepted.
Maker Booth Sizes & Fees:

Booth Sharing & Trailers: Allowed with option #3 (10×10 space) ONLY and will cost $200. However, each maker must apply individually, pay an individual application fee, and will be accepted individually. Limited larger booths or trailers will also be accepted.
Rentals (additional charges): Electricity (+$10), 6-foot table (+$10), and/or an EZ-up ($25)
Payments: May be made through PayPal, Venmo, or Zelle. Instructions will be sent with acceptance emails.
Permits: All makers are responsible for obtaining the necessary permits to participate in PSM. Collecting sales tax through a California Seller’s permit is required by the state. In addition to the seller’s permit, the venue requires that each maker have a business license through the City of Rancho Cucamonga. This will cost roughly $27 and can be done online. All food makers are also required to have a TFF health permit through the County of San Bernardino. A copy of your business license and/or health permit must be sent to PSM. We also require a maker contract to be signed, if you are accepted.
Refund/Cancellation Policy: While we realize things come up, once you are accepted as a maker, there will be no refunds and fees are non-transferable.
Wait List: If you are not initially accepted, you may be placed on our Maker’s Wait List and have the opportunity to join PSM if another maker cancels or more booth spaces become available.
Payment Policy: Once you are accepted, you will have 4 days to pay your booth fees (and any rental fees). If you do not pay within in the desired time frame, your space will be given to another maker in your category from our waitlist.
Super Important Note: New maker applications will not be considered complete until your non-refundable application fee is paid. New maker applications will only be processed and accepted from those that have completed all the steps!
Date & Time: Sunday, October 8th from 10 am to 3 pm
Venue: Victoria Gardens Cultural Center
Venue Address: 12505 Cultural Center Drive, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91739
Set-up: Begins at 7:30 am. We ask that all makers be set-up by 9:45 am so we can go over any last minute details. You are responsible for your entire set-up (minus table/ez-up rental if you need one) in your allotted space. Please be mindful of your neighbors and shoppers with your booth design. All booths must be freestanding regardless of where you are placed on the floor plan. Nothing may be affixed to the walls, floors, or any other part of the venue. We will send out a separate email for special requests (booth neighbors, wall spaces, etc.) once you are accepted.
Break-down: Begins at 3 pm and runs until 4:30 pm. We must be out by 4:30 pm! Please do not break-down before that time as it is disruptive to shoppers and your fellow makers. Make sure all items are taken with you when you break-down as we are not responsible for any items you leave.
Parking: There are two parking garages adjacent to the venue for you to park in.
Marketing: We will do extensive marketing through Victoria Gardens itself and to the local community and businesses along with social media, but we ask that you also do your own marketing to promote your participation in the market. Printed marketing and social media graphics will be available.
Swag Bags: Swag bags will be available for the first 100 shoppers in line. If you’d like to donate swag (even you are not accepted or cannot make the market), we will send out a separate email with information.
Volunteers/Sponsors: If you know of any one who’d like volunteer with us for the day of, please let us know! We can always use a few more hands. We are always looking to partner up with small businesses. If you know of one who’d like to collab with us, send them our way! :]
