Vendor selection. Little D Markets gives preference to vendors that source and/or make their items locally, though we also consider regional makers, vintage resellers, and unique imports. Vendors will also be juried based on design, quality of product, sustainability, and relevancy to the market. Following these guidelines does not guarantee acceptance to the market, however; Little D reserves the right to accept or deny vendor applications for any reason. You will receive a response to your application within 10 days of its submittal.
