Important Information for New Vendors

Before opening your booth, each tenant will supply the first month's rent and a security deposit equal to one month's rent.

Tax Permits

Sales Tax Permits In addition to personal information on each lease, we require each tenant to provide a copy of the certificate from the State of Texas proving that sales tax will be collected and reported to the state. It only takes a few minutes to get this permit. Merchants who do not have this form can apply for one at:

   111 West 6th St. Austin 78701 512-463-3961

208 East 16th St. #G22 Austin, TX 78701 512-936-6105

Renter's Insurance

Here at Market Place Austin we have liability insurance for our own equipment and operations. We strongly suggest that each merchant obtain renters and liability insurance for their area from their own sources. Marketplace insurance will not cover merchants for theft, damage, accidents, or any other losses incurred at the individual's places of business

Equipment and Furniture

Market Place Austin does not store or sell furniture or display cases for merchant spaces. Each merchant is encouraged to obtain their own, or ask other businesses in the Marketplace for supplies, fixtures, shelving, and other furniture.

Custom Spaces

Some spaces in the front and rear and along the wall of the building are available for rent by the square foot. The cost is between $4.00 and $5.00 per sq. ft. depending on location. Tenants are required to construct their own space, including walls, electricity, ceiling, floor, and furnishing. In addition, a one-time construction fee will be charged at lease signing. Remember that all spaces must be permitted and inspected by the City of Austin prior to opening to the public.

Waiting Lists

Businesses are constantly changing. For this reason, spaces may become available at certain times. If you desire, you may be placed on a waiting list for spaces as they become available. Fill out the form below, or at the Information Booth and we will notify you about spaces that become open. We give first priority to existing tenants then new businesses with different products.
