PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY: 2022 WSM Vendor Information

Approximately 80 vendors are accepted to each event. 

Participants will be selected by the Woodlawn Business Association (WBA) Promotion Committee. A select number of spots in each 2022 market is reserved for new applicants. This will include, but is not limited to: those who have never applied/participated in the Woodlawn Street Market, those who are new to Birmingham, or those who are new to selling their product. Special consideration is also given to Woodlawn residents and entrepreneurs working with REV Birmingham's Woodlawn Urban Main team.

After participants are selected, they are required to pay a $40 NON-REFUNDABLE market fee to hold their space. If WSM must cancel a market date and a vendor has paid their participation fee, that paid fee will be credited to a future market that the vendor can attend. Our collected fees go towards covering market operational costs. Any monies left in our account are used for our community. 

A participant is defined as the person who grows or makes the product they are selling, or provides the service they are sharing. This may also include the participant’s family members, partners, and employees. 

Participants should be located in the Greater Birmingham or Central Alabama area.

Participants must be at least 16 years of age. Younger participants will only be allowed to sell at the market when accompanied by an adult.

All artwork, craft-work and handiwork sold is preferred to be the original hand-made creation of the participant. The committee reserves the right to accept participants who don't meet this criteria at their discretion, particularly making certain that those goods or services are not hindering the sales of other participants. 

Participants will be selling under the WSM business license and will remit the state/city/county taxes of total sales to WSM at the end of each event.

This waiver is generally taken into consideration for first-time vendors only. If applicable to you, please ask us about the waiver in your answer to "Other needs or requests for consideration" in question 12.

Participant acknowledges that his/her responsibilities include any and all costs and expenses incurred by the Woodlawn Street Market, the Woodlawn Business Association, REV Birmingham or their Representatives in defending claims which may be brought against any of them. Participants are liable for their own products. The Woodlawn Street Market at 55th Place and/or the Woodlawn Business Association shall not be held accountable for the products offered by participants. Product and liability insurance is the responsibility of the participants. Participant assumes all risk of loss due to fire, theft, weather or other causes of damages or loss.

I understand the aforementioned indemnification.

I understand WSM cannot accept every applicant and does their best to limit the number of vendors per category.

I understand that if I am accepted I must pay a NON refundable "market fee" of $40 to confirm and secure my space per market. (This season, if WSM has to cancel an event date and a payment has been received for that date it will be credited towards a future market date the vendor has been invited to.) 

I understand as a participant I am committed to staying the duration of the market. This includes set-up & the set market hours.
