For Vendors

For the past 27 years, the First Baptist Church in Essex has sponsored this juried Annual Arts and Craft Fair on the Essex Town Green.  Both locals and visitors to the area enjoy shopping the 50+ booths that fill the Town Green with unique, handcrafted artwork.  Admission is free to the public.

  1. I loved my location last year but because some of my items are heavy and having Rheumatoid Arthritis I was inquiring if you were able to put me at a site closer to the parking lot I would be greatly appreciative. I know I’m rather new to this fair and I understand if you have to make accommodations to your returning crafters. Thank you in advance. I will be sending a check within next 2 wks.

  2. Gordon has been kind enough to email me but my replies seem to not be received. I’m seeking the correct mailing address to send my check. I’m approved but need to “hard reserve” my space. thank you! 🙂 Sincerely, Laurie Lynne
