Vendors Sought for Fountain Square

Tuesdays will be market day at downtown’s Fountain Square beginning in late spring and lasting until early fall. And to fill the market, the group that manages the plaza is accepting applications from interested vendors.

The Cincinnati City Center Development Corp. (3CDC) will operate the market for 21 weeks, from May 1 to Sept. 25. The midday, mini-market will be open from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.—-

3CDC will allow three types of vendors on the square. They are vendors selling non-food or pre-packaged items such as flowers, drinks or candy; vendors selling basic food items such as breads, meats, cheeses or produce; and vendors selling ready-to-eat food items such as snacks and sandwiches.

The market is divided into three sessions — May 1-22, June 5-Aug. 28, and Sept. 4-25 — and vendors may apply for one, two or all three sessions.

Interested vendors should visit 3CDC’s website for details about the market, selection criteria and instructions on how to apply. Vendors must apply by 5 p.m. on March 23. All vendors who are selected will be notified by March 31.
