Event Vendor Information

Lakewood families and visitors love our markets, concerts, and festivals. Our unique vendors help make these events special. Fresh produce, food truck treats, refreshing beverages, interesting crafts, unique gifts – our events have it all. We invite new vendors to participate.

Craft Theory opened a storefront in 2021 along Gravelly Lake Drive and Tea Madame opened a storefront along Steilacoom Boulevard. Both businesses began as small startups at the Lakewood Farmers Market. We hope to help more Lakewood businesses have similar success.
