Thank you for your interest in the first annual Allston-Brighton Winter Market, a collaboration between the Harvard Ed Portal and Allston Open Studios! Please fill out the following application to be considered for a table OR a display panel at the first annual Allston-Brighton Winter Market. Applications are open from September 21 through November 1. There is no charge to apply and we will notify all applicants of their status by the last week of October. Vendors who are accepted and choose to sell at the Market will be charged a $50 registration fee ($100 for any vendors who have previously participated in Allston Open Studios).
