Maker Exceptions: We have been approved to accept almost all our maker categories with the exception of coffee, cupcakes, charcuterie/cheese boards, and furniture makers.  The vendors at SOCO & the OC Mix have exclusive rights in their leases, so we are not allowed to accept similar vendors.  If you have any questions about whether or not certain items you sell will be accepted, please e-mail us.

Payments: May be made through PayPal, Venmo, or Zelle.  Instructions will be sent with acceptance emails..

Payment Policy: Once you are accepted, you will have 3 days to pay your booth fees (and any rental fees).  If you do not pay within the required time frame, your space will be given to another maker in your category.  Booth fees are non-refundable for any reason, but we will allow one transfer to the next available market.

COVID-19 Safety

We will be following the State of California’s reopening policies, so we no longer require masks to be worn or restrict guest capacity.  We will, however, continue to provide masks and hand sanitizer for shopper use.  We will also continue to space out our booths to provide a comfortable shopping experience and expect you to respect your fellow shoppers and our makers.

Makers may also provide hand sanitizer and/or request contactless payments for purchases.

Please note that the businesses at SOCO and the OC Mix have their own policies, so social distancing and masks may still be required if you decide to shop with them.

As always, if you feel sick, please do not attend.  There will be other dates for you to shop with us.  If you have any questions, please let us know.
