community GROUPS

Due to space constraints inside cSPACE during our indoor weekly winter market, we do not offer community spaces.

 

During our summer outdoor market, the Farmers & Makers Market proudly offers 2 booth spaces every market day for like-minded community not-for-profits and charities to engage with our shoppers and provide information on the work they are doing to improve our communities. Group may apply for up to 2 market dates each outdoor season. 

Interested in a booth space for your community group?

  • Review our Community Group Guidelines below.

  • Apply for the summer season by sending us an email with your request no later than April 28, 2019 (but not before April 1st!)

  • (Online form coming soon!)

 

If we are interested and able to offer your group a booth space at one of our markets we will get back to you.

We prioritize:

  • Non-profit, charitable or community-serving groups.

  • Groups with a local connection, or particular relevance, to the neighborhoods nearby the market. 

  • Groups who have a major focus in a topic related to local food and/or farms, good health for people and/or the planet, community or cultural capacity-building, education, or other aspects of our mission, vision, and values.

  • Organizations related to any of the above who are also willing to volunteer one or more market days with our Market Kids Program.

  • Accepted Community Organizations are provided with a 10' x 10' stall space free of charge for the market day.

  • Organizations may be scheduled for up to three dates per season as space allows.

  • F&MM operates rain or shine, please come prepared.
