Application Details

ImportantThe vendor application is separated into two steps. The first step is to create an account if you don't already have one. If you do, you will be asked to sign-in using your email and password. After you are signed-in, you will automatically be taken to the vending application. We are doing this so that you can more easily apply year to year, and so that we can keep in touch with you along the way by sending you important updates via email.
