Next Week:

Saturday, September 6th: #FeedTheCarrot

You may remember a dancing carrot at the market in July that encouraged you to “Feed the Carrot!” and support the market with a cash donation. Next week, the market will be asking for your support again! If you love the market, and want to see it continue to grow and thrive, next Saturday is your chance to show your support! Make sure to take pictures, make posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, then tag them with #FeedTheCarrot to encourage your friends, family and neighbors to do the same.

Contribute Today.

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!

Online contributions are quick, easy and secure. The Midtown Farmers Market is a project of the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization — please designate your donation to the Market. The Midtown Farmers Market is a 501(c)3. Learn more about what it means to be a Friend of the Market here.
