July 25, 2013.
We just crunched the numbers for the first 6 Saturdays of Riverwalk Market Fair 2013 (June 1 – July 20) and found the median sales for vendors on these Saturdays was $200. Of course, given the vagaries of retail there is no guarantee that every vendor will make that amount every Saturday. The $200 figure is the middle of the pack — an equal number of vendors sold amounts above that number and below that number.
Top 5 Reasons for Riverwalk Market Fair’s Success
1. According to our latest Economic Impact study (random surveys of visitors conducted every Saturday), the number of out of town visitors and the amount they spend has increased.
2. A significant increase in the amount of media coverage RMF has received. These feature articles tell our story to a broader audience.
3. According the same study, the vast majority of visitors checked “word of mouth” as the way they heard about Riverwalk. That indicates a growing number of people enjoy the event and are recommending a visit to Riverwalk Market Fair to their friends and family.
4. Advertising in Twin City (such as Minnesota Monthly) and Rochester media continues to build the Riverwalk Market Fair brand as well as create awareness of Historic Northfield as a weekend destination.
5. An increase in the number of vendors selling high-quality goods. Goods that Riverwalk Market Fair visitors want to buy.
If you have a product to sell consider joining us!
We are always looking for high-quality vendors in all categories. This year we added a new category of “Fine Craft.” If you are an artist who specialize in hand-crafted items in wood, leather, paper, fiber, etc. please contact us!
