What is the location and hours of the Spring Fair?
The Findings Market Spring Fair takes place outside on the 0-100 block of S. Oak St. in Downtown Ventura. Our marketplace extends from S. Oak St. into the Ventura Coast Brewing Co. parking lot at 76 S. Oak St. as well.
Hours are 10am-4pm
What type of vendors do you showcase?
Our Fairs are a curated mix of independent designers, makers, creatives and curators across varying product categories. We consider design, skill level, technique, price point and quality when jurying each applicant. As a makers market we focus primarily on showcasing handcrafted wares and goods but do curate a small assortment of vintage vendors as well.
In order to keep our Fair diverse we have opened up our selection process for everyone to apply at the same time so we can maintain a balance between veteran vendors and new vendors. We do curate a certain number of vendors per product category so we do not oversaturate any one offering.
