Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I need any other vending license to sell at Eastern Market – other than what you all ask for in the application?
No. We DO require that the application is 100% complete, however. Applications do not go to review committee unless they are totally complete (and we keep the processing fee because our staff processes every application we receive). So please send us a complete application!
What is the Sales and Use Certificate and how do I get one?
To apply for the sales and use certificate, you will need to fill out DC’s FR-500 tax form, which is available at
You can choose to register electronically or by paper. Be sure to do this online. Don’t print it out and mail it in to Office of Tax and Revenue.
How much does it cost to vend at Eastern Market?
The vending price ranges from $28 – $115 per day depending on the location and the size of vending space.
You will really like my work … should I send you all some pictures right now?
No, the best thing to do is to send them in in the packet! The application review process is run by a volunteer committee of Eastern Market vendors who will only see what is in the packet that you send in to us.
If I applied in the past and didn’t get in, should I apply again?
The only condition we have is that you can only reapply after a six month waiting period.
