Moore Square Market Sunday Pop-Up

Downtown Raleigh will host a special Moore Square Market weekend pop-up on Sunday, September 13th from 10 am-2 pm. DRA and City of Raleigh will use this pop-up market as an opportunity to survey community members on how we can improve the market and determine if a Sunday market would be best in the future as well as to support local farmers and small business owners..

If you are interested in becoming a vendor, apply for free here. The application window closes on Wednesday, September 2nd at 9 am and approved vendors will be notified by Thursday, September 3rd. The guest vendor fee is $20 for a 10x10 space.
