This is a weekly market – Artists are juried in throughout the season.  Typically you will receive an answer to your application within a 7 day period.  

Applying- Application fee is $10.  You only need to apply once per season.  Acceptance in the market last season does not guarantee acceptance this season.

Jury Process- The jury uses a variety of criteria to determine acceptance into our market. In addition to the above requirements, the jury considers:
  • Your set up-it must be neat, engaging and full.
  • Social Media-do you have an active account and post regularly?
  • Product diversity-are you selling something unique? It’s possible that we already have enough of a similar product offering. You could be denied because we have enough of your category.
If you participated in prior seasons you must reapply each season. Management will weigh in on the jury with additional considerations such as:
  • Ease of working with you-history of compliance with Market rules, were you considerate to staff and other vendors?
  • Attendance-did you cancel a lot or no show?
  • Did you post weekly about the Market on Instagram and Facebook?
  • Did your product enhance the Market? Were people buying your products?


Please follow this link to read our entire handbook. It is the vendors responsibility to stay up to date on all rules and regulations set forth by the 6th Street Market, City of Tempe, State, and Maricopa County Agencies. Vendors must also have any staff read this handbook as well. 

By submitting an application, you are agreeing that you have read the handbook and understand the expectations and regulations.
