Since 2003, the Midtown Farmers Market has brought community residents, artisans, and nearby food producers together in a vibrant neighborhood forum. By participating in this forum, not-for-profit organizations from the surrounding neighborhoods can help to ensure that the Midtown Farmers Market will continue to be a place where communities invest energy, foster meaningful relationships, and celebrate connectedness in the open air. On average, the market draws approximately 2,000 customers on a Saturday and 500 on a Tuesday.
Special Event Days: The market hosts several special event days each season. Priority on these dates is given to organizations whose work celebrates the theme at hand. Orgs requesting these dates should explain in their application how their work celebrates the theme of the day.
