The City is hosting a Hometown Christmas Market to showcase local vendors, small businesses, and home-based businesses.
Booth vendors are NOT required to be present during Market hours. There will be one central point of sale where all purchases will be made. The point of sale will be manned by a City employee.
Security will be provided prior to and during open hours. Merchandise will remain on-site from November 27 until December 20.
Hours of operation - The Market will be open Fridays from 5 until 8 PM. Saturdays open 10 AM until 6 PM, and Sundays open Noon until 4 PM. Vendors will have access 1-hour prior to opening each day to restock merchandise.
Dates the Market will operate - November 27 through December 20 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Location: TBD, but within the downtown corridor.
Space is limited - first-come, first-serve.
Lease Fee: $10 for the entire season. No refunds will be provided. Must be received before a booth assignment is made.
A SD Sales Tax Number is not required prior to selling - The State Dept. of Revenue requirements vary depending on how much/often you sell merchandise. If you only sell at a few events during the year and you do not currently have a tax license number, you may be able to sell under a temporary event sales tax license. These temporary permits will be available during set-up. You will be required to collect and pay sales tax on all merchandise sold. For information about this requirement, call the Department of Labor at 394-2332.
The initial set up time will be Wednesday, November 25, from 4-6 PM. Additional set up/stocking time will be one hour before opening each day. Please have your booth ready by posted opening hours. You will not have access to the building outside these hours (exceptions may be made with prior approval by the City).
The city will provide one 6’- 8’ table per 10’ x 10’ booth area. No chairs will be provided.
Electricity is provided. You will need to bring an extension cord.
To reserve your booth space, please return an application to Tammy Even. The $10 lease payment must be paid before a booth will be assigned. Make payment at City Hall.
