We do not plan to have a Vendors’ Meeting this year prior to the market. The application process and market procedures are the same as previous years. If you have any comments, questions, concerns, or suggestions, please contact the Market Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 252-902-6853 (text or call). We are happy to help and hear your feedback.
