Art at the Market

Apply for an art vendor space

We invite resident artists in the Attleboro area to apply for a vendor space in one of our featured “Art at the Market” events. We welcome painters, photographers, cobblers, makers of metal cookware, hardware, service wares, woodworkers, textile designers, sculptors, potters, ceramicists, jewelry makers, candle makers, and other creative and functional wares.

This expansion of the Market will promote the cultural arts of our area while attracting more people to the farmer’s market and Attleboro at large.  We also encourage vendors to demonstrate their skill to market visitors. This will be an opportunity to revive awareness of the historical trades and skills that were integral to the vitality of our region.

  • August 4 (Application received by July 3, for both dates or just this date)
