Vending Registration for SPFM 2019 and Two New Shows!

The Steampunk Farmers Market will be returning on August 24th, 2019 for it's fifth year anniversary!  We are starting vending registration earlier than ever in hopes that we can make the 2019 Market the biggest yet!

Alongside the Steampunk Farmers Market, from the same staff and organizers, two new special events are being added to the New Freedom Farmers Market's calendar that may appeal to our Market and Steampunk crowds.

The New Faeriedom Festival, April 27th 2019 

With Spoutwood retiring their long-running and long-cherished Fairy Festival as of the 2018 season, the New Freedom Farmers Market aims to keep a piece of that magical spirit alive in the area, at similar time of year, for 2019. Our goal is to transform the grounds of the farmers market and the New Freedom Community Center into a magical springtime fairy wonderland for the day, full of music, joy, activities, creativity, food, other entertainment, and of course a little fairy magic. This festival is one of two new festivals being brought to the Farmers Market for the 2019 season.

The New Faeriedom Festival is, as of this time, not officially affiliated with the Spoutwood Fairy Festival.

The Throwback Bazaar and Farmers Market, September 28th

Evoking the sense of nostalgia that comes with the memory of Saturday Morning Cartoons paired with sugary breakfast cereal, the Farmers Market is hosting New Freedom’s very own mini comic book, sci-fi, fantasy, cartoon, and pop culture event!

The second of two new festivals, The Throwback Bazaar and Farmers Market is crafted in the theme of other larger comic book and pop culture conventions, just on a smaller scale. We aim to have a collection of comic book and toy vendors (both retro/vintage and modern), an Artists Alley for comic book artists (both published and aspiring) to show off their work, possibly live music, and if we are lucky - find a modestly priced Special Guest or two to sign autographs (book authors, voice actors, tv actors, etc).

The application forms for ALL THREE of the New Freedom Farmers Market/ New Freedom Recreation Council 2019 events (New Faeriedom Festival, Steampunk Farmers Market, Throwback Bazaar are ready in nice handy combo forms! You can sign up for just one event, or multiple all at once. Interested in vending in multiple events but aren't entirely sure if you can do the ones later in the year? You can do a second application when you are ready. Only interested in the New Faeriedom Festival? Then just disregard all sections labeled for Steampunk and Throwback.

For vending, we have a two part application system for 2019. Part 1 is the online google forms application. If you are approved, you will receive Part 2, a 'receipt' laying out all your chosen options/events and your complete total which you will then have to mail into the New Freedom Borough Office with your payment.

Looking to be a guest, entertainer, or activity host at one of these events? Check out the entertainer application form. We would love to hear from you!
