-Markets will run every weekend in which we have space available at, in, or around Central Park and Atlantic Station is available for us (until November)
-Markets are scheduled to run from 10am-9pm on Saturday and from Noon-7pm on Sunday. You must be fully set-up and open during all of those hours.
-Handcrafted items and art are encouraged and may be prefered but it is not a requirement
-Your application doesn't commit you to every weekend, just gets you on the approved maker list, you may then purchase whatever weekends you'd like once a market mix is created for that weekend.
-We bring something unique to Atlantic Station and look for booths and displays with character or that bring uniqueness to the market
-Makers must keep everything clean and sharp in and around their booth, everything that is not an immediate display item or product must be hidden under skirted tables (4 sides skirted to the ground - the tight strech tablecloths which have become fashionable usually have problems with this as they bow up in the middle and make items underneath visible. This can be remdied by having a 2nd draping to cover that exposed area. Nothing should be visible under the tables from any side of the booth.
-Estimated foot traffic at Atlantic Station on weekends is 10,000-15,000 people who mostly came to shop or are open to shopping
-All Makers must have or rent a 10x10 white top tent (email us about possible rentals).
-We look for makers with good attitudes who keep things clean and sharp
-We look for diversity among makers and variety amongst products offered
-We also limit slots by category so as to prevent excessive competition in a category and more consistant profitable market days when you come out (ie Jewelry, Soap, Candles)
-We love artistic and crafty things
-We are very friendly people and will be strict about rules for the good of all - so that the markets stay open and Atlantic Station Management stays happy and usually you make more money. If you forget that a clean and sharp appearance sells, we will do our best to remember for you. lol
-We look forward to seeing you Coming Out to Have Fun and Make Money with Us at Atlantic Station at our next market!
With these markets we have brough back something that is Great for makers and makes many makers a lot of money with consistant opportunities most weekends of the year. Starting March 31-April 1st Weekend - Projected Schedule Below - (All dates below are scheduled to be open except where noted) ( Note: Some of the weekend dates used to say no market on Saturday because there are events in Central Park - however with the recent great success of operating on West District Ave right next to the park (and many makers preferring this location) and the appealing potential of operating on East District Ave. we are working toward concurrent operations with many of these events! This can both bolster our foot traffic and make for great market weekends, so we may be adding dates back in!! - Come be part of these fantastic markets in one of Atlanta's most premier market venues!
