Marketplace Vendor Application

Since the market is very popular, vendor space is extremely limited. We require that all vendors must have a sales tax number as well as collect and report sales tax. All consumable products must be approved and licensed through the State of Florida Agriculture or Business Regulations.

Policies: Southport Marketplace is owned and operated by Boggy Creek at Southport, Inc. Our Market Place policy is to give priority to Farm Vendors. Applications are accepted on a case-by-case basis.

In order to vend at the Southport Marketplace, you must follow our “Rules & Regulations.”

The following are some of our most important rules:
 

• You must grow or create your own product. BROKERING IS PROHIBITED.
• Farm vendors may be inspected prior to vending at market and seasonally, thereafter.
• Organic farms must attach a copy of certification. Only certified organic farmers can label produce “organic.”
• All food vendors must hand deliver or email a copy of liability insurance and if applicable, proof of certified kitchen. BBQ food and products are not permitted.
• All food vendors must meet all required State laws regarding food preparation and sale.
• Food vendors may not sell products “for pet food consumption.”
• All food vendors must wear gloves when handling non-prepackaged food.
• Farmers labeling meat, cheese, eggs, or dairy “for pet food consumption” must meet all local, state, and federal laws including inspections and labeling.
• You must follow the safety, noise and courtesy rules.  Vendors who do not follow these rules will not be allowed to vend at the market.
• Booth space is 10‘W x 10’D x 10’H. Only vendors in designated back-in/extended booth spaces may expand beyond these boundaries.
• Standard 10′ x 10′ canopies are required for all vendors, unless alternate booth designs are pre-approved.
• You cannot vend before 8:30am or after market closes.
• You cannot bring your vehicle into the market area after 8:00 am or before 12:00 pm.
• You must enter, exit and park your vehicle as specified. You must position your vehicle when unloading so it does not block another booth space or back-in parking space. You must unload immediately on arrival and move your vehicle as soon as unload is complete. You cannot set up your booth display until after you move your vehicle. (This includes your canopy, unless it is raining.)
• If you move the cones upon entering the market, you MUST move them back.
• You may not sell any products not listed on your application without approval.
• You must clearly post all of your prices.
• You must notify us within 48 hours if cancellation of booth.

It is the responsibility of each vendor to obtain all appropriate licenses and to have those in their booth at all times. Each vendor must file and keep current the copies of any applicable licenses and permits with Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures reserves the right to change any of the above rules without notifying the vendor and without input from the vendor. Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures reserves all rights.

Cancellation Policy Due To Weather

If thunderstorms, tornado warning/watch, or severe and consistent rain occurs prior to the opening of the Market and there is reason to believe the threat will persist through much of the Market hours, the Market opening may be delayed, or cancelled altogether.   If the local weather states that there is a chance of rain at 50% or more for the day of the marketplace, it will also be canceled.

If we need to cancel the Marketplace prior opening it will happen by 12 noon on that marketplace Friday, the day prior to our Saturday Marketplace.

If severe weather conditions develop after the Marketplace has opened, customers, vendors and staff are expected to move to a safe place until the weather has passed.  Once the weather has passed, a determination will be made about resuming normal Market operations for the remainder of the Market day.

In all cases, if the Market were to close or be delayed, a notification would be posted on our website, and communications would go out on Facebook.

After you submit the form you will pick your booth type. Be prepared to make payment at this time.
