Bloem Market is a handmade event that has been created and is hosted by Sun River Gardens. We invite local artisans + crafters to showcase and sell their beautiful handmade goods. All goods must be handmade or created by you in order to be sold at our market.
This is a juried market. What does that mean to you? We like to keep it fresh + new! Not all vendors who apply to our market will be accepted. While looking through the applications we will be choosing a few makers from each category of items. Example: If you sell hair bows, we will only choose 1 or possibly 2 makers to sell bows at the event.
Market Date & Time:
February 9-10 (Friday + Saturday) from 10AM-6PM each day
Sun River Gardens – 1248 N. State Street Orem, UT 84057

Please read through the Vendor Agreement below and if you agree to all terms then >> CLICK HERE << to submit your application.
The space provided to you gives you the space of a standard folding table (6’x3’). You are responsible for providing everything you’ll need. That includes display wares such as tables, mirrors, lighting, extension cords, décor, etc. We suggest taking advantage of vertical space to get the most out of your booth space. If you need power, or have any other special requests such as needing to be near another vendor, please specify after you have received notification of acceptance. As always, we will do our best to accommodate. All requests are on a first come, first serve basis.
Send all requests to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Central check-out is provided at the show. This means that you do not need to be stationed at your booth during the event. If you wish to attend the show and man your booth at any time, please feel free to do so. We will need to be notified of your decision prior to the event so that we may plan for space accordingly.
We accept cash, check, and all major credit card payments.
Sun River Gardens does not take a percentage of vendor sales for offering this amenity.
If you are not staying at your booth during the event, Sun River Gardens will take care of keeping your booth neat and tidy during the market. But if your booth needs to be re-stocked at anytime, that will be the responsibility of you, the vendor.
If we notice you are running low or on certain goods or hear customers requesting more of an item, we will do our best to notify you.
Vendor ID’s + Price of Good must be included on all goods sold at the market. (ie. AA01 $5)
If you regularly attend shows that require you to have a Vendor ID, please feel free to request that Vendor ID. All vendor ID’s are given on a first come, first serve basis. We will do our best to accommodate your request. We will ask that you submit your ID following acceptance to the show. If you do not have an ID, we will issue you one prior to the show, just let us know!
LABELING: Please make sure the labels/tags are large enough to be seen quickly at our registers, and that they are firmly attached to your item. If both price and vendor ID are not attached to the item or not legible, credit for the sale may be withheld.
ONE-WORD DESCRIPTIONS – Optional (but highly recommended!)
IF you would like a more accurate idea of what sold at the market, then take advantage of adding a one-word description to your product labels. Upon doing so, we will need this list of those one-word descriptions to add to our Bloem Market registers. This list needs to be provided to us 1 week prior to the show. Deadline for inventory lists is February 2nd, 2018. Please have every single item clearly marked with a price, a one-word description of your sellable goods, and your vendor ID. (ie. AA01 Soap $5)
Send all ONE-WORD descriptions to: email@example.com
Send over your requested Vendor ID to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We do our best to keep your items safe. However, in the event that something goes missing or is broken, we cannot be held responsible.
We do not anticipate theft, but if you witness suspicious behavior, to protect yourself, please notify Tanya, Traci, or one of the many other Sun River Gardens staff members on site during the days of the market.
Sun River Gardens and The Bloem Market are not responsible for any customer resolutions for handmade goods sold at the event.

POSTCARDS: Following your acceptance to Bloem Market, we will send you a batch of postcard flyers to share with your local customers, friends, and family. You should receive your postcards no later than 2 weeks prior to the event. We will also send out digital versions that can be used to share online on your social media accounts.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Be sure to take advantage of social media- Facebook, Instagram, websites and blogs. #SpreadTheBloemLove on @bloemmarketgoods @sunrivergardens
GIVEAWAYS/VENDOR SPOTLIGHTS: Upon acceptance, we ask that you send one photo in that may be used to advertise for the show. This is not required, but strongly helps market you as the shop owner, and us as a market. We will use this photo on our website, Instagram, and Social Media accounts. When sending in the photo, give a brief description of the item for us to use. Also, when submitting the photos keep in mind that the more simple the photo the better. White backgrounds + good lighting really help your items stand out.
GIVEAWAYS are done on both Sun River Gardens and Bloem Markets Instagram feeds (@sunrivergardens + @bloemmarketgoods). If you have done giveaways before, then you know how strong of a reaction you receive from customers. Giveaways are a great marketing tool. This type of advertising is highly recommended.
If you would like to be apart of our Instagram giveaways, please send a square pic of the item you will be giving away, by Jan 30. White background please, simple is key! If your item is chosen for a giveaway, then you will bring that item to the set up day of the market. Please no mailing your items before hand.
If you already know that you are interested into opting into giveaways, please contact: email@example.com
