Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do I get a stall at Crafty Fox Market?
Edit: We have now completed our trader applications for 2018. The next chance to apply will be in early 2019. You can still apply to join our online community, 'Shopping With Soul'. Find out more HERE.
The call for traders goes out via our mailing list and social media channels. You will find the application form hosted on our website. We open applications approximately 2-3 months in advance of each market. You can find current application dates on the 'markets' page of our website. Please do not email us speculatively with your work - we receive a very high volume of email.
The application process is simple and involves answering some questions about your range and submitting either a link to your website where we can view products or photos of your work.
We are looking for unique, affordable work which we know will appeal to customers at Crafty Fox Market. Items should have an element of 'handmade'. This may be either handmade by you or produced on a small scale in your home country based on your original designs. To gain an idea of the aesthetic of the market, please take a moment to look at the photos of previous events on our Facebook page.
A typical Crafty Fox Market trader is a sole-trader who produces a small range of unique products. We usually receive around 3 - 4 applications per available space so please do not be disheartened if we cannot offer you a stall.
2. How much do stalls cost?
Fees vary depending on the venue and the event. Currently they are between £45 - £80
3. When do the markets take place?
As of March 2018, we will be running markets monthly (1st Saturday of the month) at Mercato Metropolitano (Elephant & Castle/ Borough). We will also be hosting larger seasonal markets at a variety of other locations around London.
4. I am interested in running a workshop at the market. What do I do?
Please email us with your ideas setting out what is involved and how much you plan to charge.
5. Where are the markets advertised?
We put up posters in the local area and give out flyers at the tube stations in the weeks leading up to each event. We also send out press releases and are very active on social media. Our traders also promote the markets to their own networks as well.
6. Can I distribute flyers for my shop / event / service at the markets?
Please contact us to discuss this in advance. This is a chargable service and any flyers which are left without permission will be removed.
