Become a SAM Artisan:
Selling at SAM is easy, but this is a juried marketplace. In order to ensure a well-balanced market, not everyone who applies will be guaranteed participation. For consideration, submit your application for the 2013 season by April 5. Applicants will be notified of their status by April 12.
If accepted, your payment will be due by April 18. A seasonal fee of $50 applies for all vendors, regardless of how many market dates you wish to participate. For each Saturday you choose, a $50 weekly fee will apply and includes your required City of Buffalo vendor permit fee of $26.50. Artists who commit to a full season will be given priority in tent placements.
All fees and correspondence must be sent to: Saturday Artisan Market, 51 Boll Drive, Elma, New York, 14059
Perform at SAM:
We are looking for performers to contribute to the Buffalo SAM experience. Bands must be able to supply their own equipment and play a 45 minute set with the understanding that the music will be played at an appropriate level for a family friendly event. You’ll be under a tent, with electricity provided. This is a non-paying gig.
If you’d like to be considered, please complete our online application. You can send any questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do this because we believe in what we are doing, and take great pride in bringing the community together two Saturdays a month at Canalside. The success of the Buffalo Saturday Artisan Market depends on the support of enthusiastic volunteers—like you! If you are willing to join us, we’d love to have you. Each week, we can use help with artists’ check in, booth coverage for breaks, etc. If you can spare a few hours, contact us at email@example.com and let us know what day you can come. Bring a friend! Be sure to include your full name in your email, along with your address, and cell phone number.
