Taste the World in Fenton Village / Fenton Street Market POP-UP

Taste the World in Fenton Village (aka TTWFV) is an annual restaurant crawl that showcases the diverse flavors of Fenton Village in Downtown Silver Spring. Attendees pick up a guide book, then find restaurants and sample the dishes and atmosphere. Featuring over 30 restaurants and drawing hundreds of area residents, FSM vendors are the perfect match! We are setting up a pop-up market to run in the midst of TTWFV.

Where: Georgia Avenue, between Sligo Avenue and Silver Spring Avenue (we'll be set-up on the service road in front of Pacci's Restaurant)

Application Deadline: April 28th, 5:00pm. Vendors will be notified by May 1st. 

We are looking for vendors selling quality handmade goods.

Every vendor making sales needs to collect Maryland sales tax (6%) and submit it to the state. We are required to submit the sales tax license numbers of all vendors participating. If you do not have a sales tax license, but are doing more than three markets this year (anywhere in Maryland, not just FSM) you are REQUIRED to apply for a permanent sales license. This is free and can be done online here. https://interactive.marylandtaxes.com/webapps/comptrollercra/entrance.asp
