Shop small at the Orange County Market Place during Small Business Weekend on Saturday, November 24 and Sunday, November 25. Hosted by Spectra, managers of the Orange County Market Place, Small Business Saturday will offer free rental space to small, local businesses who have not sold at OC Market Place in the last calendar year and free admission to all patrons coming to shop.
In the spirit of the vision behind the program sponsored by American Express® to “celebrate your community with the small businesses that make it special”, the Orange County Market Place is designing this day to support the small and local businesses in and around Orange County. By offering a free, single space, vendors can have an opportunity to showcase their products and services to the community at large in a relaxed and open-air environment. In addition to hosting diverse vendors and products, the Orange County Market Place provides live entertainment and delicious food and beverage offerings at multiple concession stands.
Vendors interested in participating and receiving a free rental space can complete the application form found here. Applications must be received by November 14 to complete the approval process to participate.
Shoppers will receive free admission into the OC Market Place (regularly $2) on both Saturday and Sunday. Free parking is available through gates 2 and 10. Preferred parking is available for $8 through gate 1.
