If you'd like to apply to be a merchant at Great Northern Thyng, please .send the following information to the e-mail address below. As of 2019 the Great Northern Thyng (GNT) is open to any and all merchants who wish to attend and sell their goods. There is currently no process to limit merchants based upon goods sold and there is no additional fee for merchanting (merchants simply pay the normal site fee), but all food merchants must have and present proof of a liability policy that lists both the event (Great Northern Thyng) and the site (Washington County Fair Ground) as named insured.

All merchants who wish to be considered *must* send the following information prior to June 10th of the year they wish to merchant at The Great Northern Thyng.

Any Special Requests or Information:

Please Note: While there is currently no process to limit merchants based upon goods sold and there is no additional fee for merchanting, going forward into the future we hope to grow the market at this event to make it the pre-Pennsic shopping destination in the North East, or simply just the Summer shopping destination in the North East for those who do not attend Pennsic.

As the market grows, we may reach a point where merchants may need to be selected for participation based upon their products (the more unique the better) and / or other factors. Should that time come, merchants who have already participated in the market will be given consideration above those who might be new. The same will hold true should we need to start collecting a merchanting fee. Individuals who already have a history with us will have the fee initially waved and discounted after the initial period. We do not know when, or even if we will need to implement these procedures, but feel it is better to inform everyone beforehand.

At GNT 2019, in accordance with the SCA's mandate to be open to all and to provide educational activities and in compliance with both SCA and East Kingdom guidelines, we will be holding a Demo on Sunday, July 7th in conjunction with the event. The sites "Town Center" (and only the Town Center), which includes the merchant area, Mead Hall and Game Field, will be open from Noon to 4pm to the general public. This will allow interested individuals to see what the SCA has to offer without paying a full site fee or disrupting the camps and activities of those members who stay on site through Sunday. The Washington County Fair Ground will be advertising this Demo which will bring more traffic to the merchant area and hopefully additional sales. We know that this is a unique approach and if successful for us, our event attendees, the non-members who choose to attend and the merchants, may become a regular part of the event.
