With our unique roster of makers, designers, collectors, and artisans we’re looking to evolve the local shopping scene by bringing some of the most unique and innovative designers to the Brooklyn community. Our team carefully vets each application and hand-selects new vendors based on their ability to represent the Brooklyn Bazaar and meet its competitive quality standards. Here’s what we’re looking for:
The team is busy reviewing a large volume of applications, so, it’s important to make you and your business stand out. Including detailed information and photos of your product(s), links to all online presences (website, social media, etc.) and photos of booth layouts at previous markets helps the team determine if you are a good fit for the Bazaar.
Prospective vendors are required to submit an application on our website. If you experience problems with the application please try using a different browser or device. Click “Application” tab above to apply.
BKB is a year round market, therefore applications are rolling acceptance. Due to a high volume of applications, we are unable to accept and respond to all submissions. We encourage all vendors to continue perfecting their trade and to apply 6 months after their initial application date if no response is received.

The Friday and Saturday Night Bazaar takes place in conjunction with live music upstairs, our anchor and guest restaurants plus the full basement of games and Karaoke. The Sunday Family Funhouse daytime market will be geared toward families with children aged between 0-10 and will have the advantage of attracting folks that are more likely to shop during the daytime and will be open beside our full brunch offering from our anchor restaurant in addition to music and other programming geared toward children from ages 0-10 and an open basement games area. Vendor hours on Night Bazaar nights are typically from 7PM – 2AM.* Sunday Family Funhouse market hours are typically from 11AM – 5PM.*
