Vendor Areas

Vendors are allowed to set up and serve food ONLY in designated areas as assigned by River Market Management. We will communicate assigned set up locations to each approved vendor prior to each event.

Vendors must stay with their food truck, cart or other setup and may NOT approach event attendees outside the designated area assigned to that vendor.


The River Market does not require vendors to pay a percentage of gross sales back to the venue, but we do charge rent to set up. Rental rates vary by event. Vendors will be notified of rental rates for each event at which they are approved to set up.

Rent is due each day vendors set up. We cannot bill for rental invoices. Checks may be made payable to The River Market.


Vendors are responsible for paying all state and local taxes.  Vendors must be registered with the City of Little Rock A&P Tax Commission and must be current on filings and taxes due to participate.  Vendors must complete and submit the DFA Special event tax form (provided by Manager) at the end of each event with either payment to DFA enclosed or a reporting of earnings and the total amount to be paid from this event as part of monthly remittance.

Set Up / Tear Down

Set Up and Tear Down times will be determined by River Market Management and communicated to vendors prior to the event.

Vendors are not allowed to enter the designated vendor area for set up prior to the stated set up time and are required to stay in their assigned location until the stated tear down time.
