There wasn't the "20-30" vendors as was reported somewhere back when this was first announced, 10-12 maybe, but it's early I guess. 

I was there around 12:45 and there was still one vendor setting up. I intended to stop back after work and when I walked out at 5:00 one table was empty and another vendor was packing up. I had to double check the hours, and confirmed, they are supposed to be 12-6. 

if you have set hours for an event, the vendors need to arrive early and stay til the event is over.

As a vendor and organizer I can tell you it NEVER happens that way.  No matter what the paperwork says about leaving early, they do what they want.  I know with Woodfest I didn't invite them back if they bailed.  4:00 is 4:00.

It is early though for a "farmers market".  Looks like they could use some more craft vendors too.
