Mother's Day Market Vendor Information
DUE TO OVERWHELMING INTEREST, WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING VENDOR APPLICATIONS. LOOK OUT FOR OUR EVENT IN 2020!
For 100 years, Business and Professional Women of the Triangle (BPW/Triangle) has strived to develop a powerful network of leaders to advocate, educate, and cultivate connections. Through its nonprofit Foundation, the organization awards two scholarships annually to outstanding undergraduate and graduate women from the Triangle who are seeking to further their education, advance their careers, or re-enter the workforce. The Dr. Lois E. Frazier Scholarship and the Mary Edith Fox Scholarship are the cornerstones of BPW/Triangle’s commitment to women supporting women.
On May 11, 2019, BPW/Triangle Foundation will present the first annual Mother’s Day Market at The Mayton Inn in Cary, North Carolina. The event will feature women-owned businesses from the Triangle, and will provide an exciting opportunity for Moms to enjoy a family-friendly shopping experience on Mother’s Day weekend. Your participation as a vendor at the Mother’s Day Market will support the mission of the BPW/Triangle Foundation, will provide you with marketing exposure to the Triangle market, and will give you access to hundreds of shoppers on Mother’s Day Weekend in the heart of downtown Cary. We expect over 200 people from the surrounding area to attend this free community event.
