One of the great things about the Movies in the Meadow Night Market is that you have the option to completely
customize your vending space to create an unforgettable experience for shoppers. We encourage you to get creative
and build out your space. Use the floor ( a well manicured park lawn), use the walls, use the rafter if need be. Please
bring everything you need to build out your space with you. This includes tables, rolling racks, chairs, hooks for wall
space, etc. To ensure design market consistency and our standards are met, we reserve the right to request changes
or modifications to booth displays even after set up. To minimize this risk, we recommend sending your merchandising
plans/concepts in advance (this is not required, just recommended for ease). Please take a look at the photos below to
get a feel for past customizations and expectations for our vending partners.
