Each Each season, the Midtown Farmers Market welcomes nonprofit organizations reach out to community members at the Market through our Community Table program. A diverse crowd of approximately 1,500 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.

The Midtown Farmers Market is looking for local musicians, jugglers, dance troupes, theatrical performers and entertainers! Your volunteered time and energy make the market a lively and fun space. And seeing your name up in chalk is almost as good as seeing it up in lights. Musicians are welcome to sell CD’s and put out a tip jar, and will be publicized on the market’s events calendar. Contact the market at email@example.com if you’re interested in performing.
Compost / Recycling Educators.
With the help of Hennepin County Master Composters and Eureka Recycling, the Midtown Farmers Market continue’s work to improve its waste-reduction program! During the 2014 season, all immediately consumable foods vendors began to serve food and beverages in BPI certified compostable products. These changes allow market customers to make more sustainable choices by composting and recycling nearly all waste generated at the market. To make the program successful, we need volunteers to continue to assist in monitoring the stations and educating market customers on reducing waste. Volunteers also get the opportunity to meet and interact with their neighbors while spending a morning or afternoon at the market. No experience is necessary – we can train you right at the market! If you are interested in helping out with the program, contact market staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here.
