IF ACCEPTED TO VEND, YOU AGREE TO:
The City Flea and Washington Park will not be responsible for any damage or theft of personal belongings or merchandise. Please be careful and responsible for your area and we advise that vendors carry their own insurance. Any accidents caused by a vendor’s set-up or goods will be the responsibility of that vendor. The City Flea is not responsible for any personal injury during our events.
VENDOR FEES: Unfortunately we cannot give refunds for vendor fees less than two weeks out of a market date or if the weather gets sour. (We'll be more disappointed than you.) Our production costs remain the same, no matter the circumstance or weather.
FOOD: Food vendors are responsible for their own health permits and are also required to provide AT LEAST one garbage can and will be held responsible for any grease or similar leaving on the site whether rain will wash it away or not. Electricity will be provided but please contact us if you will need more than a standard outlet. We always recommend bringing a back up power source and extension cords.
STATE SALES TAX: All vendors are responsible for abiding by all tax laws and collecting the appropriate sales tax for Ohio on each sale. For more information about this you can contact the Ohio Department of Revenue or view taxation requirements on their website.
