Types of Vendors
Annual Lease of a Booth
- You would purchase a booth from a current vendor for the purchase price you agree upon with them. Then you would owe the Lions Club an annual fee of $600. Make sure that the vendor tells you if the current year lease of $600 is paid when you purchase. All annual fees are due by November 30th before the season begins.

General Information about Renting/Leasing a Booth
- Vendors are not allowed to sublet their booths. If a vendor wants to allow someone to use their space for a specific month, the vendor must send an email to email@example.com so the booth can be marked as a pre-rental and assigned to that person. If the vendor wants to allow someone to use their space for the entire year, the vendor must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so the booth can be marked as an annual rental (by vendor) and assigned to that person. The vendor that is using the booth will owe the fee $115 for a pre-rental per month or the cost of the annual rental. All monies related to this rental are due to the Lions Club and not the vendor.
- We are not accepting any food vendors. This includes pre-packaged drinks and food, anything edible.
- There is electricity in all booths.
- Vendors must have a sales tax certificate from the State Comptroller's office to be a vendor of any kind at Wimberley Market Days. If you have a question about this, you must contact the State Comptroller's office.
