Attention Nonprofits and Community Organizations–
Community Table Application Now Open!
Planning your outreach, recruitment, and/or fundraising efforts for the year? Connect with your community this season at the Midtown Farmers Market!
Each season, we welcome nonprofit organizations to reach out to community members at the Market through our Community Table program. The Market operates at the corner of E. Lake Street and Hiawatha Ave (map below) every Saturday May-October from 8am-1pm, and every Tuesday June-October from 3pm-7pm.
A diverse crowd of approximately 2,000 community members visits the Market each Saturday and 500 each Tuesday to buy locally produced food items, shop for beautiful handmade art, check out live musical performances, and learn about the work of our Community Table partner organizations. Community Tables offer a great opportunity for program outreach, awareness-raising, education, marketing, fundraising, member or volunteer recruitment, and old-fashioned community building. We charge a small fee to help cover the administrative costs of running the Community Table program — $25 per Saturday market, $15 per Tuesday market, and an additional $15 per day to rent a tent, table, and chairs from us.
Confused about the market’s location?
Don’t be! We’re just 300 ft east of where we used to be. See the map below for our exact location:
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.
