Any food or drink participants should reach out to Jimmy at jimmy@headwestmarketplace.com or HEAD WEST Instagram DM for pre-approval. Food + Drink Participants will also need to apply for a Temporary Food Facility Event Permit through the Alameda Health Dept. or the City of Berkeley.

Participants are required to provide their own tables, displays and fixtures. For outdoor markets, the participant is REQUIRED to provide their own 10’x10’ canopy tent, with weights. This is mandatory, as there will be no tents available day-of. Utilize sellers such as AMAZON for the most affordable canopy tents, with a white or beige canvas top. Same requirement applies for a 10’ x 20’ double booth, unless you are a mobile vehicle/trailer participant.

All outdoor HEAD WEST marketplaces are held rain or shine, unless otherwise called-off in advance due to severe weather. In cases of inclement weather during markets, ensure you come prepared with canopy tent walls, tarps and other necessities to protect you, your shoppers and your product against the elements. Booth fees will issued as booth credit for a rescheduled or future market, if a market is cancelled in its entirety due to being called-off or in cases of emergencies.
