Annual Herb Fair Vendor Information

Herb Faire Public Information - 2018

Updated 2018 Herb Faire Vendor Information Coming Soon!

Dear Potential Herb Faire Vendors:

The 2018 Madison Herb Society Herb Faire will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2018, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Building upon the success of past Herb Fairs we will continue to focus on herbal education. In support of this focus, our vendor-criteria will focus on herbal products. We welcome the following types of herbal products: herbal soaps, herbal teas, herbal art work, herbal cosmetics, herbal books, herbal vinegars, herbal foods (jam, jellies, etc.), herbal dried products and decorations, and herb plants. Vendors cannot offer artificial or non-herbal products. Please note that vendors must provide a list of all products they plan to sell along with their application.

Set-up will be on Saturday, from 7-8:30 a.m., which will give you one and a half hours. Please enter through the back side door at Olbrich, not the main front door entrance. We will not be able to set-up on Friday, nor can we access Olbrich prior to 7 a.m.

Olbrich is a business as well as a public park and needs to be able to rent space as often as possible. Few public gardens are free Olbrich is an exception, and we are fortunate to have the facility and the help of the Olbrich staff who have supported us over the years. They, like everyone else, need to bring in revenue whenever possible to continue serving the community. As a result, we are only reserving the building for Saturday, enabling Olbrich to rent space on Friday.

Like last year, you will need to supply your own table. Olbrich has chairs available - two chairs will be provided per vendor.

We are having speakers, as usual, and we hope you will be part of the 2018 Madison Herb Society's Herb Faire!

Vendors will need to fill out the Vendor Application and Membership forms, and send them in to MHS in order to sell items at the Herb Faire.

We hope you will consider joining us for the Herb Society's biggest event of the year! As many of our veteran vendors know, this festival is widely attended and a great deal of fun. For new vendors, we'd like to welcome you and help you get off to a great season, so please feel free to let us know how we may assist you.

The theme for this year's Herb Faire is Herbs for the Holidays. If you have any products that include holiday herbs, please let us know so we can promote them.

An electronic press release, including a copy of the Herb Faire poster, will be sent to you once you are accepted for participation in the 2017 Herb Faire.

Please consider downloading a copy of the Herb Faire poster to help promote this event.

If you are interested in giving a program or workshop at a future faire or at one of our monthly meetings on your area of specialty, please let us know so that we can include you on our speaker's list.

Thank you and welcome.

Chris Manke - President Madison Herb Society
