Membership Dues

Annual membership dues assist the CBCM in providing public liability and property damage insurance to vendors and give each vendor voting privileges for decisions made at annual general and special meetings.

Membership dues apply only to vendors selling agricultural, processed, arts & crafts, vintage & antiques, and food concession products. 

Non-profit community groups, musicians and entertainers are not required to purchase memberships. 

Vendors who sell products that are mass produced or obtained from direct marketing, affiliate, or catalogue businesses, or from existing ‘brick and mortar’ businesses are not eligible for membership.

Annual membership dues are $15 per vendor.

Stall Fees

The stall fees for various vendors are documented above. Youth vendors are those 18 years and younger. 

Space is provided free of charge for non-profit community groups, musicians, and entertainers.

Online Shop Fees & Online Shop Vendor Payments

Vendors selling in the CBCM online shop must hold a current membership and pay a transaction fee of 10% of the sale price of their product. This fee helps to offset the cost of web hosting and the payment processing fees the CBCM incurs when selling online.

The CBCM will pay vendors for the sale of their products at the end of each month either by e-transfer or by direct deposit. Any fees owed to the CBCM will be deducted from the sales amount owed to the vendor before payment is made.

Payment of Fees

Membership dues are due upon submission of the vendor agreement.

Stall fees are due no later than seven days prior to the market(s) for which a vendor has committed.  Vendors who fail to pay stall fees seven days in advance of their scheduled market(s) will not be guaranteed space at the market.

Membership dues and stall fees may be paid by cash, cheque, or electronic transfer to marketinthebay@gmail.com.

Dishonoured Cheques

A $50.00 charge will be levied for dishonoured cheques.

Refund Policy

Membership and stall fees are non-refundable. In some cases and with at least two weeks’ notice, swapping dates may be approved by the Market Manager. Under exceptional circumstances, vendors may receive a refund on stall fees, on approval from the Board. Such refunds are subject to an administrative fee of 25% of the total fees for the remaining markets.
