Apply for the Porter Flea Holiday Market 2016

*To apply as an emerging artist you must have attended no more than 3 craft markets as a vendor.

Porter Flea is a juried and curated craft fair presented by the Porter Flea team.

  • Porter Flea Holiday Market 2016
  • Friday, December 9th 6-9pm (Preview Market) + Saturday, December 10th 10-5pm (Main Market)
  • Located at Skyway Studios, 3201 Dickerson Pike, Nashville, TN 37207
  • Applications open on September 19th and close at midnight on October 16th.  Vendors will be announced on October 24th.

All applications will be reviewed by our jury team. Applicants are judged first and foremost on the quality, creativity, originality, and branding of their wares. Secondary consideration is given to maintaining an eclectic, complementary mix of vendors and artisans.  The Porter Flea team is committed to curating a diverse and interesting market to draw the largest number of serious customers.

All items sold at the market must be original and made by hand by the individual artist.  In addition to our handmade ware Vendors, we are pleased to welcome back both Porter Pantry and Porter Parlour Vendors to the Holiday 2016 Market.

*PLEASE NOTE: Vintage items will only be allowed as a complement to handmade items from the artist; we will no longer approve applications for vintage-only booths.

**If you plan to share a booth, both artists must apply separately.  Each artist or group of artists sharing a booth will be juried individually.  The application allows for you to identity your intended boothmate.

*** Returning artists should have at least 25% new merchandise in order to keep our market as fresh as possible.  We will allow branded handmade art collectives and mobile entities to apply. If you have a question about this, please email
