VENDOR SET UP DETAILS

Vendor spaces are 12' wide x 10' deep.

Ample and convenient free parking is available for vendors arriving until approximately 8:30am.

When you arrive you must unload everything from your vehicle onto the sidewalk under the supervision of our Management.

After unloading your vehicle you must move your vehicle.

After parking your vehicle return to claim your items and proceed onto the Boardwalk where our staff will assign a space to you.

For those vendors with extra heavy loads we have secured the use of the Grand Plaza at B.94 Street and Shore Front Parkway which will allow vendors to set up on the Plaza at the entrance to the Boardwalk without having to carry or wheel their items onto the Boardwalk.

Vendors may unload/load just steps from their selling area!

Do not set up on your own on the Boardwalk or on the Plaza!

Please be prepared with a handtruck or dolly to bring your items onto the Boardwalk.

We will have personnel to help but we cannot possibly help everybody at the same time.

 

Vendor set up begins Saturday morning at 7am and Sunday starting at 7:30am.

Please do not line up before 7am because the Police Department said they will ticket any vendors before 7am.

You will risk a $100+ fine if you leave your vehicle on the line up while bringing your items onto the boardwalk.

​Vendor vehicles may not be driven onto the Boardwalk.

Vendors may leave their set up overnight at their own risk.

In order to be guaranteed the same location the following day, vendors must leave something in their space overnight so that management knows it is reserved.If you have paid for only Saturday you may get the same space for Sunday simply by following the steps listed above and Management will come by on Sunday to collect your rent for the day.

NO PLASTIC BAGS
The NYC Parks Department prohibits vendors from using plastic bags.
Vendors must use paper or other recyclable material.
