FALL MARKET AT DOTHAN MERCANTILE
VENDOR INFORMATION

If you are interested in being a vendor at the upcoming Fall Market at Dothan Mercantile on Saturday, October 7, 2023, please complete the vendor registration form in its entirety.  Once you have completed the registration form, please remit your vendor fee via one of the methods listed on the registration form.  Forms and payments may also be dropped off at the store in person.

We held our first Spring Market in April 2022 and had approximately 42 vendors and food trucks/trailers attend.  This is a well organized event with lots of traffic.  We had approximately 700 people come through during Spring Market.  We expect the Fall Market may be bigger and better due to our recent expansion and our reputation within the community.  We also plan to increase our advertising for the Fall Market.
