Gobble Up 2023

Apply to vend at Gobble Up

Apply to vend at Gobble Up. As a vendor at Gobble Up, you’ll be able to connect with:

  • Customers shopping for holiday gifts, treats for their own kitchen, and home cooks who like to use unique, quality products.
  • Restaurateurs and chefs who realize the importance of sourcing locally, the cachet of having recognizable, local producers on their menus, and the value of highlighting these makers and bringing attention to these companies’ stories.

This show will be taking place in both cities prior to Thanksgiving, taking advantage of the kick-off to the holiday shopping season and making this a great event to buy holiday ingredients and treats, for both home cooks and chefs alike!

In order to apply, you must be an independently-owned, PNW-based food or beverage company who focuses on quality ingredients, and who is looking to build a strong brand within the community.
We are also accepting a limited number of vendors who sell handmade kitchenware, kitchen/restaurant decor, and food-themed items.

Sprouts Program

At this year’s Gobble Up Portland show, we’ll have two new Sprouts vendor sections! These are areas that will give vendors who are new and building their businesses an opportunity to vend at a lower cost, and will be in a separate section from the rest of our packaged food vendors.

While both Sprouts options will have a reduced booth fee of $175, one of these will be outside in a 10×10 booth space (BYO canopy!), while the other will be in an interior room of the main hall in a raw 5’x8′ booth space.

The outdoor spaces are larger, but also come with all of the typical unknowns that come with vending outside in the fall/winter–namely unpredictable weather. At the same time, they’ll be cozied up in the back lot along with the Sip & Savor Lounge (including our food trucks and full bar), which we already use to activate this great outdoor space.

The indoor Sprouts section will be more protected from the potential elements, but shoppers will enter a separate room to shop with these vendors. (We will be posting extra signage around the hall making sure they know about this indoor Sprouts section to help boost visibility, as well as heavily promoting this new section in newsletters and social media leading up to the event!) This option is great for vendors who do not have or do not want to set up a canopy, and don’t require quite as much space as the outdoor 10×10 allows.

Our Sprouts sections are part of our newly launched Greenhouse Program, which we’ve recently introduced in 2023. We hope this opportunity introduces new, emerging businesses to the craft show game and instills a love for the community and for our fans. We can’t wait to watch you grow!

I sold more sauces at this market than I’ve ever sold at any event. I have done 115 events across the PNW in 2022, so this is huge!
