The MadCity Bazaar is a juried flea market featuring vendors selling high quality goods and locally made artisanal crafts, art, vintage finds and collectibles, prepared and packaged artisanal foods (jams, jellies, salsa, hot sauce, etc.) and other products. In addition to being a venue for existing vendors to market their goods, MadCity Bazaar is also meant to be an economic development project. Low overhead and guaranteed foot traffic provides an invaluable marketing opportunity for small and new producers and vendors in the community.
Discounts on booth fees are provided as vendors increase their commitment to vend at the Bazaar. The fee for vending from one to nine market days is $50 per day; 10 to 19 days is $35 per day; and 20 to 22 days is $25 per day.
All this will occur at a new location, in the parking lot of the Fiore Shopping Center at East Washington Avenue and First Street. The new venue’s expansive area and high visibility along a major thoroughfare will provide a big boost to the endeavor.
MadCity Bazaar vendors may reserve a 10’x10’ space to sell their products. All arts and craft items must be handmade. Artisanal value added food products must be locally produced (all food items must be packaged to sell requiring no health department involvement). Vintage items must be of high quality. The sale of commercial items, imports and novelties is not permitted. Vendors must possess a Wisconsin Sellers Permit. To ensure a diverse group of vendors at each event, applications submitted by interested vendors are juried.
