Are you interested in vending at the market, but a little intimidated by the process? Midtown Farmers Market and Corcoran Neighborhood’s Try It! Program could be for you!
The Try It! Program seeks to give small businesses an opportunity to try a farmer’s market experience at the Midtown Farmers Market with limited financial investment. Our goal is to help emerging entrepreneurs explore whether or not becoming a vendor at the Midtown Farmers Market is a good fit for them and their product. We prioritize Twin Cities residents who identify as having low-income, are black, indigenous and/ or people of color, identify as women, trans, femme, or gender non-binary. Since 2003, the Midtown Farmers Market has built a reputation for incubating small businesses, and we strive to ensure that the opportunity to innovate and grow is accessible and beneficial to all community members.
