Locally Made Market at the Montpelier Hunt Races on November 6th
Everyone knows that shopping at the unique Vendor Village is a fun part of Race Day for the thousands of visitors who attend the Montpelier Hunt Races each year. To support and encourage local entrepreneurship, the Orange County Economic Development Department would like to extend to three (3) home-based businesses the opportunity to compete for a FREE shared vendor tent, to market and sell their product(s) at the 2021 Montpelier Hunt Races. This platform will allow individuals to reach thousands of potential consumers, and to boost the visibility of their business.
