Refunds & Cancellations
All payments are non-refundable and your space is not assignable. If there is a cancellation: (1) By INV: If a cancellation of the Event by INV is necessary due to unforeseen circumstances, acts of a third party, or other circumstances which (in INV’s sole judgment) may compromise the safety of Event participants, then the Event will not be rescheduled and there will be no refunds to Vendor. (2) By Vendor: If Vendor cancels its participation at least 30 days prior to the Event, then INV will seek to find an appropriate replacement vendor – if a replacement vendor is found INV will refund 50% of the full fee paid or due. All deposits are non refundable. INV cannot offer full refunds, due to the administrative work associated with preparation of the event. Once Vendor cancels, it forfeits its spot in the Event. Vendor may not assign this Agreement to any third party, or delegate any of its obligations without the written consent of INV. Only the accepted Vendors are able to sell or distribute their items and/or conduct activities at the Event. INV does not guarantee any level of attendance at the Event and there will be no refunds, under any circumstances, after the Event is over. Deposits are not refundable. Please see terms & conditions.
Food Vendors: All food sold at the market must be made in a commercial kitchen – or the vendor must have a DuPage County Cottage Food License. A temporary food service permit is required when food is served to the public during an event (i.e. this includes sampling) or if the food being sold is perishable (i.e. requires refrigeration or heat to maintain).
DuPage County Health Department typically asks us to provide a list of all Food Vendors — and we do comply with all such requests.
Naperville, IL & Oak Brook, IL are both in DuPage County. If you are doing more than one market in DuPage County, the county may offer you a permit discount for multiple markets.
Reminder: It is each vendor’s responsibility to follow all State, County & City/Village requirements. We are not experts in the detailed requirements for all the different food & beverage types – and nothing we say or write should be interpreted as advice. We can’t guarantee that we haven’t misunderstood or been misinformed, and County rules can change at anytime (as we saw during COVID). As such, we strongly suggest that you email the county (info below) if the rules outlined on their website is unclear.
