Vendors are responsible for obtaining any required Ontario business licenses as well as collecting and remitting appropriate sales taxes on their wares sold.

Please ensure that the following information is accurate and correct – double check URLs, be sure spellings (especially in email addresses) are correct – this information will be used to create your contract, as well as for promotional purposes on the TIAM website.

Your Full Name (required)

Your Business Name, as you want it to appear on contracts and the TIAM website

Your Email (required)

We need to see images of products when selecting vendors. Please provide AT LEAST ONE of the following URLs where we can view samples of your recent work. Applicants who do not provide links to images will not be considered. DO NOT, under any circumstances, send us images of your wares via email, doing so will result in an automatic rejection.

(Note - your URL must include the "http://www" part to work properly. You will receive an error message if you do not include this.)

Your Business Website (if applicable)

Your Etsy Shop (or other online sales site, if applicable)

Your Business' Facebook (if applicable) (note - no personal Facebook pages, please)

Select the category that most applies to your business. Please be sure you are in the correct category or your application may be misfiled. If your work fits into more than one category, please explain in the description area below.

If you are a garment vendor, please indicate the size range of the items you would bring with you. Preference will be given to garment vendors with the widest range of ready-to-wear size options, from petites to plus sizes.

Briefly describe the product(s) you would bring to TIAM and how they are made.

Please indicate the price range of your items.

Briefly describe your planned table display. TIAM provides the table (possibly ugly) and number of seats only – vendors are responsible for all table coverings and display items. Vendors should also be aware that this is a table-top market – you may NOT place ANY display or signage in front of, beside or behind your table. You may not attach anything, by any means, to any part of the venue. Additional merchandise must fit under your table. We will strictly enforce this rule.

Our venue has a variety of table sizes, and we will do our best to put vendors in their first choice, but cannot guarantee size or location. Tables include the indicated number of seats – you may not add additional seats/persons to your table so please ensure you are booking a big enough spot if you will have someone working at your table with you. Vendors may not share tables or add the work of other artisans to their tables after acceptance.

Your second choice of table size

List any other technical requirements. Note that we will only look at actual technical needs, and will absolutely not accommodate vendor requests for specific spots. If requesting access to an outlet, please indicate what it is for, and note that we will NOT assign spots to accommodate phone charging. Charge it before you come! ALSO ***IMPORTANT*** - a request for hydro access is NOT a guarantee that we will be able to provide it, as only about 1/3 of the space has hydro access. If you absolutely must have lights, we advise bringing battery-powered lights.
