Vendors Wanted For New Saturday Market
Shop and restaurant owners on Portland’s Monument Square have announced a new Market Day to encourage people to visit downtown on Saturdays.

The market will feature Maine-made crafts, art, antiques, and vintage goods in an outdoor, casual setting. The Monument Square Coalition is looking for people who would like to sell these types of products downtown during the summer.

The concept for the Saturday Market began last year as local business owners were discussing how to increase pedestrian traffic downtown on the weekends. After developing the business plan with the help of Portland’s Downtown District (PDD) the City was approached to approve the market.

The Saturday Market will allow up to 30 vendors to set up tables in Monument Square on Saturdays in July and August from 9 AM to 2 PM. The cost is $25 per Saturday and applications can be picked up at PDD, 549 Congress Street, Longfellow Books, One Monument Way or at
