Looking for the Best Canopy Tent for Vendors? Start Here!

Selling without a storefront is a great option for new (and established) business owners who don’t want to take on a mountain of debt, exorbitant rental costs, and overall risk. In today’s market, the status of brick-and-mortar storefronts is somewhat up in the air, but one thing is certain: smaller retail from farmers’ markets, food trucks, and craft fairs is gaining in popularity. With this trend in full force, every business owner should look into entering these smaller vendor markets. If you, like many, are looking to do just that, there are few things you’ll need. Perhaps the most important is an outdoor vendor tent, like an instant canopy (also known as a pop-up tent), to cover yourself and your goods. Even if you already have a thriving vendor business, a canopy can help you expand or simply add comfort for your patrons.

 With more shoppers than ever taking to the streets, having a vendor tent has become a virtual must in this day and age. Whether you’re looking for one single, no-frills pop-up tent for your mom-and-pop operation or you’re on the hunt for ten heavy-duty vendor tents complete with branding for your rapidly-expanding startup, our team at Extreme Canopy has got you covered for your vendor tent needs. Read on for a crash course in what to look for in tents for vendor booths, and find the perfect product for you business from our trusted manufacturers.

What to Look for and What to Avoid When Buying Tents for Vendors

  • Stay away from plastic frames and thin, cheap canopy coverings. While you may be able to find a pop-up online that blinds your better judgement because it’s so cheap, chances are that the price is going to come with cut-rate materials. If fact, you might not get any information on your cheap tent’s materials at all. In these cases, there’s a very good chance that the materials used are low-quality, like plastic and thin canvas that is neither weatherproof nor rip resistant. Get a canopy that is made out of a combination of aluminum (for the legs and pop-out arms), harder/heavier-duty material for the joints, and rip-resistant fabric materials that are proven to last in rain or shine. If you want heavy duty vendor tents, you’re going to want them to mention, in bold, their high-quality materials.
  • Go with brands that offer both warranties and industry experience. It’s pretty simple: the longer your tent’s warranty, the longer it will likely last. And if it doesn’t last, the good news is you’re under warranty, so you’ll get a free replacement. Trust companies that have been making tents for vendors for years — ideally decades — rather than some random company that doesn’t even specialize in tents. Who do you think is going to provide you with a better product? An industry-leading, professional tent-constructing operation, or your local megastore or online megastore?
  • Make sure you get a tent that comes with a grounding mechanism. Whether it be stakes, sandbags, or baseplates, you need a reliable and easy-to-use grounding solution for your tent. You don’t want an unexpected gust of wind to send your tent flying away and hitting somebody, damaging your property and potentially causing an injury or lawsuit. (Plus, it looks very unprofessional on your part to have your roof fly away on you.) As a proud new owner of a vendor tent, you have to be just as concerned with what’s on the ground as you are with what’s over your head. We recommend investing in a combination of stakes, sandbags, and baseplates so you can keep your tent grounded on any terrain.
  • Get a tent that’s light and compact enough to move, but sturdy enough to work in most conditions. You are going to be moving around a lot with your new tent. Get one that’s not going to be a hassle to set up, tear down, or move to and from your vehicle. Once again, aluminum is going to be your best friend in a tent. It is light, but also strong. Make sure you’re buying a vendor tent that fits into its bag easily and can be carried easily. When collapsed, tents on the smaller side should be manageable for one person to move. Bigger pop-up tents should be manageable for two people.
