RPreviously advertised as the Fringe Market - this opportunity is for the right creative person to assume full ownership of the market events located at 81Bay Brewing (Tampa) and Flying Boat Brewing (St. Pete).
This market will become YOUR market - therefore the use of the name "the Fringe Market" or any similar name does not come with the market. These events are currently being advertised as The Fourth Saturday Market and The Second Saturday Market, which you are welcome to use. Should, in the future, you decide that you no longer want to manage the market - you will be its sole owner/operator and will need to work out an exit or release plan with the venues you are working with.
Should you ever have questions in the future, you're always welcome to reach out to me via email/text/phone call.
I will help you get the ball rolling and give you insight to my procedures for accepting payments, processing contracts for vendors and promotion of events, as well as walk through your first event for set up and logistics training.
On site training:
81Bay Brewing - 4/28
Flying Boat Brewing - 4/8
The market manager will be required to:
+ Find and Book vendors
+ Accept payments for vendor registrations (most vendors are used to doing this online - think a typical online shop, the indie flea, etc.)
+ Promote the events (places like Creative Loafing, the Arts Council, the TBT and other social media outlets plus word of mouth and shared vendor promotion are the recipe for success!)
+ Set up the market the day of the event - it is not often, but sometimes set up may require you to dispose of various debris and refuse (basically - make it pretty so people want to shop your markets)
+ Break down and clean up the event
+ Be available to vendors who may have questions about the locations/event policies on the day of as well as leading up to the event(s).
+ Have great communication with the point of contact and staff at the hosting locations.
+ Be a self-motivated problem solver - because you never know what may pop up but I do know, you WILL be the person who has to handle it.
+ Be organized enough to maintain a list of confirmed vendors for each event and check them in on the day of the event.
