Sidewalk Saturdays is a celebration of local community, creativity and collaboration as local brands, artists, and musicians come together to share their craft on the sidewalks of Downtown Phoenix. We currently have two locations hosting local artisans: The Churchill and MonOrchid.
This is a weekly market that takes place on Saturdays throughout the year across Downtown Phoenix. Market times vary and are adjusted seasonally based on weather. Please refer to the schedule for current timing.
At this time The Churchill has space for up to 25 vendors that wrap the perimeter of The Churchill along the sidewalks on First Street and Garfield. The MonOrchid will accommodate up to 20 vendors. We are committed to supporting new and expanding artisans in the Downtown Community.
We have simplified the process for becoming a vendor at Sidewalk Saturday. If you have vended with us before, please register at www.sidewalksaturdays.com. If you’re new, please review the FAQ and ensure you are a fit for the market and agree to the process and ground rules before registering. Each location will have a separate RSVP link. Please register for only one location per date.
We give preference to artisans with a valid EIN number and who is registered to sell in Arizona. Food and beverage vendors are limited but we do welcome pastry and dessert vendors to apply. Please reach out for pre-approval before purchasing a spot.
If you registered via eventbrite, you’re confirmed. All the details re: set up is outlined in eventbrite and in the FAQ. We will be emailing a vendor map the Friday before the market. If you have additional questions, please direct them to SidewalksaturdaysPHX@gmail.com
Yes! Please. Sidewalk Saturday has always intended to be a community-led project with artisans and creative brands at the helm. Please email Sidewalksaturdaysphx@gmail.com with your inquiry and we’ll go from there.
Due to our revised registration process, we will not be sending out ‘acceptance emails.’ Instead, if you paid for your spot via eventbrite, you are confirmed as a vendor. This is a first-come-first-serve space. We are so grateful for an increased interest in this intimate (yet mighty) market and we do our best to reply to all applicants. If you filled out an application through our previous process, please register via eventbrite. All other questions, please direct to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, if you’ve attended Sidewalk Saturday as a vendor in the past, you can register for as many dates as you plan to attend via eventbrite. Keep in mind that we are no longer honoring refund requests. In the event that a market is cancelled, we will reschedule and apply vendor fee to a future market.
While we know that life is unexpected and things arise out of our control, if you are a no-call-no-show, we reserve the right to deny you from future market dates. You also will still be responsible for your vendor fee. Please keep in mind that successful markets are because of those who show up and make it so. You are responsible for making the experience positive & successful.
‘Tis the market life. We encourage you to be an active participant in promoting Sidewalk Saturday and all the activities available in Downtown Phoenix. The hard truth is that some weekends will be slower than others. Consistency is key and it evens out. It’s Downtown Phoenix and always growing.
Vendor fees are $45 per vendor/per market + eventbrite fees. All vendors must provide their own set up, which includes an 8ft table (max), small display, and umbrella. For the sidewalks outside of The Churchill we do not allow tents due to limited space.
Unfortunately, we do not have umbrella’s available for everyone which is why we strongly encourage you to invest in your own for market attendance. The sidewalk does not offer enough space for each vendor to bring a pop up tent and therefore we ask that you only bring your table + umbrella.
That’s ideal, yes!
As long as you’re selling a good or service in Arizona, whether or not you have employees, you need to have a Tax Privilege Transaction number to set up for Sidewalk Saturdays. Find more information here.
