The Midtown Market strives to bring sustainable, affordable food to the community. While there's no roof over an outdoor market, the Market still has overhead expenses: as farmers are busy growing the vegetables and fruits, market staff are hard at work on the nuts and bolts of making a market run. Administering the EBT access, providing a stage for local performers, even the signs and maintaining the parking lot where it all happens takes money and staff time.
Vendor fees only cover half of the cost of running the Market. We rely on the community to contribute the rest. Please donate today!
