Full time and seasonal vendors are invoiced monthly via email. Please pay through the Square link in your invoice. If you did not receive an invoice please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Part-time vendors pay the Market Manager via check, money order, or credit card on Market days they attend.
SHARED MARKETING COSTS (SMC): Once approved to participate in the DFCM, Vendors pay Shared Marketing Costs. Vendors do not pay booth rental fees. Included in the SMC, Vendors receive a 10×10 space; a website listing (Vendor must provide the information via email to Brittany.Melson@lakelandgov.net); and the opportunity for Social Media mentions and shares, as well as inclusion in the weekly email newsletter at various times throughout the year (Vendor must provide the information via email to Brittany.Melson@lakelandgov.net). The DFCM also purchases promotional items, buys advertising throughout the year, and hires musicians with the Shared Marketing Costs (SMC).
SMC may be paid in person to the Market Manager by check or money order (payable to “LDDA”), credit or debit card. Cash is NOT accepted. Vendors on the monthly payment program are invoiced via email and also have the option of paying via credit/debit through the invoice. Monthly payments are due by the 1st of the month with a $5 automatic late fee added if not paid by the 10th of the month. Monthly amounts will vary depending on the number of Saturdays per month. No refunds or credits will be given for Vendor absences who already receive a discount through the Full Time or Seasonal rates.
RESERVED SPACE FEE: Vendors who are categorized as full time (see definitions above) are required to pay the reserved space fee when absent from the DFCM for a minimum of 3 consecutive weeks. The reserved space fee cannot be used in lieu of SMC for short term (1-2) week absences. Reserved space is $5 per week, payable in advance.
