A note to vendors...
BisMarket is still accepting vendor applications for the 2020 Market Season. In response to the pandemic, BisMarket will feature each vendor on its website and social media platforms and will offer the “Early Bird” Rate for the entire market season.
While planning for the upcoming BisMarket season, we are doing our best to ensure a successful and safe Market season for all of our vendors amid the COVID-19 pandemic! This will require flexibility and adaptability from all of us. After research and reaching out to other markets held nationally, one of the most recommended methods for vendors' continued success is an increase in online and social media presence.
We would like to provide you with some FREE resources to help you either create or enhance your online presence, and hopefully help you switch to an online sales platform, which could be a hybrid of both online ordering/sales and market delivery/pick-up.*
If you currently have an online presence, please check out the included tips for how to maximize your time and profit.
*BisMarket is in no way responsible for these services, but would like to make them known and available to you. Thank you for your patience as we navigate these new and trying times, we appreciate your support and encouragement.
