Shop Local Raleigh Partners with Local Markets to Add New Member Benefit

Shop Local Raleigh (SLR) is excited to announce a new partnership with local markets Pop-Up Raleigh, Raleigh Night Market, and The MAKRS Society. Members of SLR will now receive discounted vendor rates at these local markets!

In an effort to further support local businesses, Shop Local Raleigh has teamed up with the organizers of Pop-Up Raleigh, Raleigh Night Market, and The MAKRS Society to serve as a promotional partner for these area events that showcase local makers and small businesses to help spread the word about upcoming markets.

Shop Local Raleigh members will now receive discounted vendor rates when participating in these local markets:
  • Pop-Up Raleigh: $10 off vendor fees
  • Raleigh Night Market: $10 off vendor fees
  • The MAKRS Society: $10 off vendor fees and 10% off sponsorship packages

Details and applications for upcoming markets can be found on the respective market partners’ website: www.popupraleigh.com, www.themakrssociety.com, and www.raleighnightmarket.com. Members of SLR will still need to complete the application and jury process for these markets as normal. Membership status does not enhance or hinder the likelihood of acceptance. Discounted rates apply to the vendor fee only; application fees are still required when indicated. To receive discounted rates, Shop Local Raleigh members must be in good standing with the organization at the time of acceptance to the above markets.
