When and where are the 2024 Horseshoe Markets?

After trying out some new locations and returning to ones we loved, we have a great  season of Horseshoe Markets for 2024! Markets will be held May 11 and Sept 28 at Regis University Campus, August 3 at Breckenridge Brewery in Littleton and a holiday market there as well, on Dec 7 and 8. Our Small Business Weekend Holiday Market is on Nov 30 and Dec 1 at the Highlands Masonic Temple. Application windows will open in advance to each market. Reach out to us at with any questions. 

Who can participate?

We accept applications for the following types of vendors: hand makers, ceramicists, jewelers, visual artists and designers and vintage collectors. Plus artisanal food vendors, food trucks and mobile boutiques. We look for unique products made (or collected) with great quality. In terms of art and craft–we usually only allow goods handmade by the vendor/seller. We accept a limited number of fair trade vendors, depending on product, product quality and business mission. We aim to include makers and entrepreneurs who create and source goods with ethical & sustainable practices.

Is the Market juried? What are you looking for in a vendor?

Yes, the Horseshoe Markets are juried. Our mission is to include  makers, artists and entrepreneurs with high quality goods, ready for market and with a brand that is unique and accessible. Here is a list of what we look for in a vendor:

  • Your product fits within our overall vision of the Horseshoe. The Horseshoe is all about vintage and handmade and repurposed. We love independently designed and ethically and sustainably-made goods (home & living, clothing, decor, accessories, jewelry, ceramics), well-curated vintage finds, vintage furniture and clothing, really good ‘junk’, architectural salvage, curiosities and local culinary artists. Our hope is that each booth a customer stumbles upon wows them and is filled with “lucky finds!” to curate their home and lifestyle.
  • Your works is cohesive, consistent and well-presented in your application.
  • Your photos, online presence and website (it’s recommended you have one, as shoppers often look for ways to purchase from you outside of market days) are of great quality and an accurate representation of your business and what you will bring to the market. A booth photo is a major plus if you’ve participated in markets.
  • If you are a return Horseshoe vendor, please use new photos in your application. We want to see that you are evolving as a maker/collector and that you will add fresh content to the market.
  • There are certain categories that are saturated with applications such as jewelry, candles, ceramics, and handmade accessories. We get many awesome, high quality applications for these categories but simply don’t have enough room in each market for all the great vendors. We encourage vendors who don’t get into a particular market to keep applying and keep fine tuning their products, businesses, photos and websites to represent themselves the best they can!

When can I apply to your markets?

Applications open in advance to each market as our team goes over each one to make sure each fits our criteria, we give opportunity to newcomers, and so each market has a variety of vendors. Make sure you never miss announcements by subscribing to our email newsletter list. 

What are your food vendor rules?

For each market, we accept a limited amount of food trucks and artisanal food vendors depending on the venue. Food trucks and food vendors must be properly licensed by the city of Denver and the state of Colorado. 

What are the booth options?

Basic information for each location can be found under the 2024 Markets tab. Booth sizes for markets range from 6×6-10×10 for holiday markets, and regular markets range from 10×10 to 10×20 booths. Price range for markets are between $225-$550 depending on the market. There is no electricity or wifi available onsite. Please come with your own data plans, your devices fully charged, back up batteries, and all your need to have a fun and comfortable day!

What is included as a participant/vendor?

Included in your vendor fee:

  • Your booth space at the market for your products and business. Vendors are responsible for bringing their own set up, including a tent and weights for each leg. We give you the space and bring the customers and shoppers.
  • Inclusion of your business link on our website which receives 6-10K page views per month, and 75K page views per year.
  • Opportunity to be featured on our social media channels and website (over 14K engaged fans and followers).
  • Retail/wholesale opportunities. Throughout our 14 year history, our markets have become a hub for buyers and local, independent retailers looking for new product for their stores.
  • Community & Collaboration: Not only are lifelong friendships forged among vendors, but our markets and community create a vibe of inspiration and we’ve seen numerous creative collaborations between vendors develop! Plus our customers and shoppers are a creative, supportive crew. Not only do they support local and love getting to know makers and entrepreneurs, but it’s also networking and collaborative experience with our shoppers.

Do I need any special permits to sell at the markets?

Yes, all vendors must be in compliance with state and federal tax laws. It is your responsibility as a vendor to understand sales tax before the market. State of Colorado special events license application can be found here. City of Denver special event license information can be found here.

What if I need to cancel my booth spot? Do I get a refund or can I transfer my booth spot to a future market?

We cannot offer refunds for your booth space or transfer your payment to a future market. Thanks for your adherence to this policy.
