Program and Product Requirements

Our Young Artists must create any object sold at their booth. Items will be priced $20 and under. We have a nominal jury process, artists submit photographs or samples of the itesm they plan to sell and we review those submissions to ensure they meet the program’s mission. We ask that you submit no more than 2-3 types of items and only sell items that were approved.

We encourage artists aged 8 through 18 to apply!

Is There Anything I Can’t Sell at the Young Artist Marketplace?

We do have standards and restrictions to protect the safety and integrity of the Young Artist Marketplace.

  • No purchased items made by someone else allowed, all items must be created or significantly up-cycled by the young artist.
  • No balloons due to environmental impact and noise.
  • No food, pet food/treats, or drinks since we cannot ensure food code and safety standards
