    • Hi Mary Ann, we would recommend getting in touch with the organizers of the individual markets you’d like to sell at. We are just a site providing info on Christmas markets around the world, and don’t have anything to do with logistics/planning. Best of luck!

  1. Hello! I’ve been getting emails about being a vendor for the Arizona Christmas Markt. Is this legitimate or a scam?


    • Hi Julie, we’re not the official event organizers so aren’t 100% sure. We’d recommend finding the official website for that particular event and emailing the organizers directly.
