(from the perspective and experience of a market manager)
• arrives on time and stays until the end
• offers a good selection of product and enough of it to last through the market day
• their price, presentation and quality match
• professional display and presentation
• stands at their booth, smiles and initiates conversation with customers
• focuses on customer service
• is aligned with the market’s vision/mission
• understands the success of the market as a whole as the key to their success
• follows the rules (parking, etc.)

Added value if the vendor also ...
• works collaboratively with other vendors
• takes advantage of training and networking opportunities
• is a market shopper
• is community-minded
• invests in the market by giving their time/expertise, etc.
