Cleveland Bazaar Retail Lab apps are open!

You may have seen this recent article in Freshwater Cleveland about our new Retail Lab project. We’re excited to announce that the applications are now online. We envision this program as an opportunity to test vendors’ retail concepts in an existing, high-traffic location without the long term commitment of a full lease. All summer long, in addition to individual vendors’ pop-ups from week to week, we intend to program some specialty shops and events alongside our Legacy Village partners.

It’s going to be a busy and bright summer for the small businesses of northeast Ohio!

Apply to vend at our 2015 holiday events!

Thank you for your interest in our 2015 holiday events!

Last year’s Winterfest and main Bazaar shows had record-breaking traffic as we celebrated our 10th anniversary. This year, we’re adding a new east side event on Coventry in partnership with their merchants association, and we expect traffic to be booming there, too!

This application must be submitted BEFORE 15 August 2015. Please note, there is a $15 non-refundable application fee which will be applied to your total show bill if you are accepted for any of the three events. This fee must be paid before 30 August or your application will NOT be juried and you cannot be accepted for any of the shows.

Winterfest + Manly Mart = apply now!

Northeast Ohio is a creative place, and we’re really excited to be teaming up with Akron’s Crafty Mart for two new shows this holiday season.

The first will be during Winterfest in downtown Cleveland at the 5th Street Arcades (for old school Clevelanders, that’s the Colonial Arcade). 29 November 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

RSVP here for the show and invite your friends! Come down and shop indie (a welcome relief after Black Friday), then see the lighting ceremony on Public Square.

The second show will be the first time CM’s Manly Mart takes place in downtown Cleveland! 5-6 December, hours TBA.

Vendors, you can apply for the Winterfest show here and for Manly Mart here.


Cleveland Bazaar at NEOcycle + Gay Games events


We’re pleased to announce that Cleveland Bazaar has procured discounted vendor spaces at the NEOcycle event event this September. Please apply for your space with us ASAP at this link.

Due to timing constraints with the storefront we will be operating in Gordon Square during the Gay Games next month, all NEOcycle applicants will also be considered for placement there, so applying quickly is of the essence. Note in your application if you have any questions about this. Thanks!

SEVEN summer shows in 2014!

The application form for all seven summer Cleveland Bazaar shows is now live. Please click here.

In addition to five dates in Ohio City’s Market Square Park (across from the West Side Market), this year the application for our event at the Larchmere Festival has been incorporated into the same form, as well as the application for our brand new event in Wade Oval, the Cleveland Food Bazaar!


If you are a handmade vendor whose products are food-related in any way (for example: aprons, or wind chimes made from recycled silver cutlery), you can apply to be a part of the first Food Bazaar using the form above.

If you are a food vendor (i.e. food truck, jam maker, popsicle maker, coffee roaster), please hold tight for the moment, there will be a special application just for you soon thanks to additional regulations and city requirements. We thank you for your patience! Join the Food Bazaar’s mailing list and we’ll let you know as soon as it’s live.
