The venue does not have WIFI. Please have a large cash float and consider bringing a POS system to process your transactions.

Is there WIFI? NO, there is no WIFI at this location. Our team uses as a POS system called a Clover that works off of satellite and does not require WIFI or a cell phone signal. This may be something you want to look into investing into for yourself and future shows.

What are the booth/display requirements? Every vendor is responsible for their full booth display. NO TABLES OR CHAIRS are provided. Feel free to bring your own or get creative with your space. We do not expect your booth to look like a traditional Third+Bird set up. This is a 'farmers' market' style set up. We will encourage an aesthetically pleasing set up but we do not expect bells and whistles. This is a slimmed down market look. A backdrop wall is not required like our bigger Spring + Christmas markets or Winter pop-ups. The floor is packed gravel. If you are outside please consider a tent to give you sun coverage.

Food Trucks - We will connect with you closer to the market to coordinate your load in for the night BEFORE the market or the morning of at 10am SHARP, so we can get you in your spot before the load in traffic comes with all of the other vendors.

If you have a collection that is not yet in production you may upload past photos (please show us ones you have not yet applied with in the past). However we do ask that you EMAIL us at hello@thirdandbird.com right after you apply showing us your prototypes with a brief explanation so the jury knows what to fully accept.  Please put in subject line: COMPANY NAME + PROTOTYPE

Do I have to have a hand in the creation or design of the product? Yes! Vendor involvement in the design process is crucial and mandatory. While outsourcing components world wide is common, we require a vendor to contribute to the design and/or assembly of the product. This collaborative approach allows businesses to leverage design creativity and production efficiency effectively.
