HOW DO I BECOME A GOOD MAKER?
Applications are CLOSED for our 2019 markets. Get on the mailing list below to find out when applications for the next show open! Once applications close we begin our jury process. Vendors will be notified within 2 weeks of applications closing whether they’ve been accepted or not.
We are looking for those who make quality and creative handmade goods. Those who are collectors, farmers and re-purposers and those who can showcase their wares in amazing over the top displays. We love us some good eye candy:) No direct sales.
Cedar County Fair Grounds - Yes, I know what you're thinking, fairgrounds?!?!? Trust me. It's super cute promise! Picture this, a beautiful white barn with gorgeous wood floors with ceilings that reach the sky, green grass, lots of huge trees for shade and tons and tons of parking for tons and tons of shoppers!!! YAY!!! Our indoor spaces are very limited but the outdoor spaces are awesome too!
In case you're wondering where the heck this is, it's not far off Interstate 80 in between the Quad Cities and Iowa City. So easy peasy to get to!
SET UP DETAILS
Our market begins at 3:00 on Friday. While you can for sure set up on Friday, we also allow you to set up on Thursday which we strongly encourage. So much more relaxing for you and it cuts down on the chaos on Friday. We provide overnight security both Thursday and Friday night. There is also a parking lot near by for you to leave your trailers as well. Tearing down early is not allowed.
You are responsible for the collection of your own sale tax. You are required to apply for a Iowa Sales Tax Permit since the State of Iowa is no longer offering Temporary Sales Permits.
All payments made to Good Makers Market are non-refundable for any reason.
WHY WASN’T I ACCEPTED?
We jury each market individually based on the apps we receive. We receive many, many more applications than we can accept. We are going for a certain feel and look. Please don’t be offended if you are not accepted. This is the hardest part for us. Some categories are more competitive than others. We strive to curate each market to have a wide variety of goods and not too many of the same categories.
