Vendors with no primary product focus and a large variety of products will most likely be denied or waitlisted; these vendor types are hard to not conflict with other vendors within the market.
Because we try to give each vendor the best selling advantage within the market, there are many vendors on the waitlist due to duplicate products. So far, these vendor types have a long waitlist: tumblers, certain resin art types, cutting boards, candles, baked sweets and jewelry.
The Backyard Bazaar is a monthly, evening, outdoor market. The market takes place on Nebraska Ave (between Grand Blvd & Adams St) in Downtown New Port Richey every 1st Saturday of the month from 6pm – 10pm.
Please note that submitting a vendor application form does not guarantee a vending spot. Space is limited and vendors will be selected based on their contribution to the diversity of the market as a whole.
There is no fee to apply. Submitting your application DOES NOT guarantee your acceptance to the market. Your space is not confirmed until your final payment is made. All invoices must be paid 30 days before the market starts (seasonal vendors must pay their invoice 30 days before the first market of the season).
The Market Manager will determine if a product meets the needs of the market. If it does not, your application may be denied or placed on a waitlist. There is no time frame for determining when a waitlisted application may be accepted into the market. We are limiting the number of vendors in each category to give our vendors a better selling advantage and our consumers a variety of products. Please allow 5-7 business days for the review of your application due to the high volume of applications. If you do not hear from us within this time frame, you have been placed on the waitlist.

It is necessary for an interested potential vendor to complete an online Vendor Application in its entirety, providing the required licenses, their company description, product listings and social media account so we can view your product photos.
