Insurance for Food Vendors
Effective October 1st 2020 all vendors selling food must carry a commercial general liability insurance policy in order to sell food at The Marketplace in East Nashville.
For vendors selling pre-packaged food made in the home kitchen, the food vendor must locate the proper procedures from the local Health Department. The food has to be non-potentially hazardous, meaning it could be stored at room temperature. There are specific regulations in place for food being sold that is made in the home kitchen, all of which are required at The Marketplace. For more information about Tennessee's Domestic Kitchen Laws, please click here.
Food vendors assume sole responsibility for any injury, harm, or illness caused to a consumer by their product. Food Vendors assume responsibility of obtaining the proper business licenses and information from the local Health Department. Pre-packaged food vendor spaces are typically held outdoors from Spring-Fall.
Failure to provide. the venue with a certificate of insurance as stated above will not result in a refund to the vendor.
Food Trucks and mobile food vendors preparing food for on-site consumption must have. assigned food truck agreement on file outlining food truck and mobile vendors procedures.
Each vendor space measures approximately 10x10 ft. Vendors are responsible for providing their own booth setup. The vendor is responsible for their own tables, chairs, and displays. The vendor is responsible for bringing any necessary display equipment and signage. The Marketplace does not provide any materials for the vendor to set up their space.
The event and market organizers reserve the right to assign any and all vendor spaces. During the Spring, Summer, and part of Fall, spaces may be changed to indoor or outdoor at the discretion of the organizers. Vendors should thus prepare for an indoor and outdoor market just in case, as all markets go on rain or shine.
Parking and Load in
Vendor agrees to abide by parking and loading rules set by the venue. Vendors are liable to be towed at their own expense for not obeying on site parking rules. This includes parking in handicap spaces or in neighboring businesses designated parking spots.
Set Up & Breakdown
This depends on the event that you have reserved for. Setup typically begins 2hours prior to the start of a market. Breakdown typically begins at the end of the market until 1.5 hours after. the market has ended. Please locate the vendor handbook for setup and breakdown times.
The organizers/managers reserve the right to change the load-in time at any time and for any reason.
Vendors must have their booths set up by the time the market opens, and vendors may not break down their booths until the market closes. No exceptions. Breakdown must be finished by no later than one hour and a half after the market closes (5pm close means finished by 6:30pm). If, due to unforeseen circumstances, the vendor does not breakdown their booth, the vendor agrees that The Contour Group and The Marketplace @ Skyline Commons are not held responsible for any loss or damage done to the vendor’s property or merchandise. Breaking down of booths early may result in denial of future applications to vend at any future events or markets.
Vendors to Clean/Tidy Spaces After the Market
All vendors are responsible for cleaning up their booth space when the day is over. Example: You sell potted plants and leave soil all over your spot; you are responsible for getting a broom and sweeping it up. Vendors must clean any debris / detritus left over from their day of vending. All big garbage + boxes must be left near the dumpster at the end of the day and not stuffed into or left next to a smaller garbage can. Large messes left uncleaned are subject to a $5.00 cleaning fee that must be paid before the next day of vending.
