Vendor call: Oasis Urban Market

Oasis Urban Market is seeking vendors for its inaugural year. It is located at the historic 5 Drive-In in Oakville. The event goes on all summer long, every Saturday starting May 28th – September 24th, from 8am – 4pm. Their goal is to make this the largest outdoor market in the GTA. 

They are accepting vendor application all throughout the summer and were just able to confirm a larger event space, so are able to accept more vendors for all dates. They are happy to offer low vendor rates of $35-$45 per date and have low cost tent and table rentals for the vendors that may need them. There will be a variety of food trunks, live entertainment and are happy to offer a full farmers market with local produce from a farm in Burlington.  They will be advertising on several platforms such has newspaper and will have a radio ad on Fresh FM and some other Chorus Radio Group affiliates.

For more information please visit their site.
