Set up is between 8am-10am - when you arrive please check in with the Coordinator to assign you a spot. We recommend a table and tent/awning due to the sun or sometimes inclement weather.

*A note on Parking: Unloading is permitted close to the Village Green, during set up. We then ask you to park up near the school so customers can use the preferred spots. Please do not use any surrounding business parking spots or you may be ticketed/towed.
