Mini Markt Vendor Application 2022

Mini Markt Vendor Application 2022


Heurich House Museum’s Mini Markt program provides small-scale manufacturing entrepreneurs with a free in-person sales platform during our public Biergarten, which draws up to 200 people per day.

Our goal is to give small businesses without brick and mortar locations (artist spaces excluded) in their first few years of operations an affordable and manageable platform to support their growth.

The museum will provide vendors with:
1. A 4ft x 8ft space
2. One (1) 6ft table
3. One tablecloth
4. Access to bathrooms
5. Access to power
6. Professionally designed cross-promotional marketing materials

Museum staff will communicate with vendors about their acceptances at least 20 days in advance to and coordinate details on participation.

Small Business Development Program

The Mini Markt program contributes to the Heurich House Museum’s mission to create a more equitable future for local small-scale entrepreneurs, a majority of whom represent historically underserved communities. This new program, launching in June 2022, is part of our core mission, rooted in historic brewer Christian Heurich’s legacy of entrepreneurship and philanthropy, and inspired by our Annual Christmas Market – now in its 10th year.

To better serve our community, we are asking you to participate in some data collection.

Please Note: Answers to these questions are not required to participate.
