Welcome! Thanks for your interest in the DIY Homesteader Festival Market. Please read ALL of the below information before moving through the application process.
We are head over heels for hand-crafted, home grown goodness! Part of our mission is to extend a consciousness for our earth and support for our local artisans, farmers, and producers into all reaches of the festival. That means doing our best to connect our fest-goers with the farmers, producers, artisans and crafters within Manitoba who can provide them the support – and products – they need to take the first step. Thanks for applying!
If you have any questions please email anytime.
Please read the information below before continuing on to the application.
You will be notified regarding whether or not you receive a space shortly after applying. Thank you!
Tables need to be set up by 7:50am. People will start arriving then, and workshops do not start immediately. The morning is a prime time, and also we want to be fair to other vendors — and to shoppers —and have a fully set up market when the fest starts.Vendors are expected to remain for the entire day. Early tear-down is not permitted.
If you are staying for both days, you may choose to leave everything set up overnight. We will close up the tent, to ensure no one enters the market tent. We are not responsible for lost or damaged goods left in the market tent overnight.
If you do not show up, you will not receive a refund.
THERE ARE 2 TYPES OF GENERAL STORE MARKET SPACES:
For hand-made, farm-grown or produced goods, and small start-up type local businesses
For businesses with products or services for the modern homesteader. The product or service must be highly relevant to our audience. Examples: solar arrays, garden centre goods, small farm tools, tiny homes, etc.
Thank you again for your interest in being a part of the DIY Homesteader Festival’s General Store Market!
