  • How do I become a vendor at Black on the Block?
    Vendor applications open on the 1st of every month. Apply to be a vendor through the Black on the Block Vendor Portal! Please read this FAQ before you apply for more detailed vendor information. Applications are not first come, first serve. This is a curated market, so all vendors must go through an approval process. For more insight on our selection process, please read the "How are vendors selected" tab next. After you apply, you will receive an email within 2 weeks if you have been accepted, and must pay the vendor fee within 72 hours to confirm your spot. Due to limited space not everyone who applies will be accepted. Black on the Block does not send decline emails or application status updates to applicants. Requests from applicants regarding the status of their application may not be answered. If we contact you and do not hear from you within 72 hours, your spot may be given to another vendor on the waitlist.

  • How are the vendors selected?
    Due to limited space and hundreds of applicants, our acceptance process is selective. We want to ensure there aren't too many vendors within the same category in order to maintain variety and for our vendors to maximize their sales. Each market is a combination of returning vendors and brand new vendors. In terms of selection criteria, the amount of followers you have does not matter. We are only looking for a level of professionalism, thoughtful branding, and quality products that stand out when making our selections. We prefer vendors that have their own brand and products vs. reselling items. You must be able to provide a website or Instagram account where we can view a variety of what you will be selling or services you will be offering. Our team thoughtfully reviews each application to make sure they're a good fit for the market atmosphere.
  • Do I need to bring my own tent, tables, and chairs, etc?
    Yes, as a vendor you are responsible for your entire setup. This includes tents, tables, chairs, generators, extension cords, and anything else you may need for your setup.
  • I just applied. When will I hear back?
    We get back to all selected vendors within 2 weeks of application. Black on the Block does not send decline emails or application status updates to applicants. Requests from applicants regarding the status of their application may not be answered. Please be sure to check your email and spam for your acceptance email. If we don't hear from you within 72 hours, another vendor on the waitlist will take your place.
