Vendor Information And expectations
Why Beacon Flea Market?:
Beacon is a booming City on the Hudson River, within a fast train ride from NYC. Beacon is a thriving, artistic, community with a varied and bustling commerce.
Beacon Flea Market supports local commerce by not vending food or beverages, and encourages customers and vendors to patronize the wide variety of cafes and restaurants on Main Street.
Beacon Flea Market offers schools, non-profits, and Beacon Resident discounts and fundraising opportunities, provides a safe, fun, community-minded event, and is a quality and genuine shopping experience with all the flavor of a true flea market.

A Tuesday email calling for vendors to sign up for the upcoming Sunday will hit your inbox. Respond ‘Yes’ if you can join us. Delete if you can’t.
If you are on the list, via phone or email, you will be assigned a space upon arrival. However, it is first come first serve, and once I am full I may not be able to accommodate you. All spaces are assigned by management. I will always ask you to move closer to your neighbor, no discussion required!
If you are not on the list you may be asked to wait until the list spaces have filled.
The market load-in is first come first serve, nose to tail, in rows. The center spaces are the last to fill, and may end up being slightly smaller. I do not discount for center spaces, tight spaces, neighbor encroachment, sudden inclement weather, etc. Early departure is frowned upon.
No loud noises or honking while waiting to enter - residential area.
Flea Market closes at 3pm. Please respect your customers and fellow vendors by staying open for the duration of the market. Do not attempt to leave before 3pm. You run the risk of damage to people and property. If you know you need to leave early please let Management know. If you consistently leave early your request to return may be denied. All vendors must be out by 4.30pm.
Trash barrels are for customers only, PLEASE CARRY OUT YOUR TRASH. If you leave trash your request to return may be declined. Do not leave FREE piles. I have to pay the City to remove them, and I will pass that fee back to you. Do not dump trash by the law office dumpster. It is not for flea market use.
No profanity, abusive conduct, alcoholic beverages, or weapons (excepting antique merchandise). If you bring your dog it should be leashed at all times. Smoking should be discreet, if possible. Lots of kids and pets.
Objectionable and offensive items will not be allowed at the managements discretion. If items are considered inappropriate or illegal I will ask that you remove them. Prohibited items from the list above will also have to be removed from sight at managements discretion.
Bad weather - This is a fair weather market and will run unless severe weather, excessive heat or rain is forecast or occurs. If inclement weather occurs during a Flea vendors may leave early - no refunds given. I will attempt to make the cancellation decision by 5pm Saturday evening and will email you if you are on the list. Otherwise - check the Facebook page daily for cancellations should bad weather be in the forecast.
We look forward to having you with us this 2019 season!
