ALL THE NEED TO KNOW INFORMATION

Before you apply...

Check out the trader page for the relevant Market and/or the Online Directory where you will find information by each opportunity including what we look for, what we offer and who can apply - this does vary so it's an essential read. You'll also find our terms by opportunity which you need to agree to when you submit your application.

Application Routes

For 2024 all successful Market applicants (for any and all of our Markets) will need to become a Directory member for 2024 (through to end of January '25). By including all successful Market applicants in the Directory we ensure synergy between our real life events and online presence. It will also limit the backend work needed to deliver the associated Online Markets so that we can continue to offer accessible stand prices at our events in the face of rising costs. This means that there are two application routes, one for non Directory members to apply to join the Directory only or to join the Directory and Markets, and another for current Directory members to apply to join our Markets. Please select the relevant application route from the buttons below to find out more and submit your application.

Applications for NON Directory Members

This application form is to apply to be a member of the Directory and for Market events that applications are currently open for.

If you are NOT already a member of the Cornwall Shop Small Directory you will need to apply to join our Markets through this route. For 2024 all successful Market applicants (for any and all of our Markets) will need to be a Directory member for 2024 (through to end of January '25). This costs a £12 set up fee and £1 per full month from your listing launching (through to January '25) and includes your own page in the Directory, your listing by category, access to additional support services and ongoing promotion. You can also apply to join the Directory only (not events) using this application form. 

Find out more about why joining the Directory is pretty awesome HERE. This application form is pretty juicy but it includes all of the information and assets to complete your Directory listing, and the great news is that once you are a Directory member you'll only need to fill in a short form to apply to Markets.


Please note that by submitting an application you will automatically be added to our trader subscribers emails list to be in the know about our upcoming events, trader opportunities and application news. You'll only ever get the news you've signed up for and you'll be able to unsubscribe at any time.

To apply you will need:

  • 3 x square* promo pictures with no graphics or montages (under 3MB each)

  • 1 x square* trader photo (photo of you / the people behind the biz) with no graphics or montages (under 3MB)

* they will be cropped to square if not supplied square

 

To apply for the Market events you will also need (in addition to the assets above):

  • 1 x stand / merchandised stock pic (under 1MB)

The application form fields detail where any information will form part of your public Directory or associated event Online Market listing if your application is successful, marked as '(public)'. All other fields are for internal use only.

IMPORTANT: When submitting your form please wait for the submission thank you message so you know your form has successfully submitted. During submission upload the submit button will turn grey.

If you apply for the Directory AND Market events but there isn't space at an applied for Market your application for the Directory may still be successful. You can choose to accept your Directory membership offer or not. Anyone who becomes a part of the Directory will need to complete the much shorter application form for future Market applications.
