The Vendor Membership in The Black Pages is especially curated for food and product vendors. You'll receive access to learning opportunities, business growth resources, and early-bird invitations to apply to vending opportunities at local festivals, block parties, concerts or other outdoor and public space activations. Other businesses and organizations seeking your skillset will now have direct access to find and book you, and your community will be able to find you wherever you are.
With the Basic membership, you will get access to all events, vending applications, courses, webinars and workshops, many of which are ticketed and have a cost. If you are a Vendor who's ready to grow and expand your business, the Preferred Vendor membership may be for you: discounts on courses and workshops, plus first-rights-refusal for vending events.
