Belfast Art Market returns with no-fee model for vendors

BElfast — The Belfast Art Market is back for the 2020 summer season, every Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Sept. 25, alongside the original Belfast Farmer’s Market.

The Belfast Art Market (BAM) brings a rotating cast of talented Maine artists every week, offering an eclectic array of high-quality ceramics, clothing, jewelry, paintings, and more. But this year, Waterfall Arts, the organization behind the BAM, decided to waive both the annual and weekly fees in an effort to support local artists in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

As the season moves forward, vendors typically increase in numbers. Currently, the BAM is still accepting applications for vendors for the season. Commission-free, free to participate, and flexible to participate in one market or every single one, the opportunity to get exposure and build community lies at the heart of the market.

Following health and safety guidance, vendors are required to wear masks and social distance.
