The Capital City Farmers Market has a lease with the City to manage the entire market lot, which includes the spaces along the Julio’s wall. The market is providing this space for free to non- profits, kids’ performances (music, breakdancing, etc), political candidates, and the like.
In order to make sure there is space for your group and that your activity isn’t a liability for the market, we have prepared the following guidelines.
- Non-profit spaces are filled on a first-come first-served basis. If you are interested in reserving a space, email the market manager for confirmation for the date(s) you would like to set up at: firstname.lastname@example.org. There are several dates that the Julio’s wall is not available, such as during our Youth Vending Day, held on the first week of August.
- Non-profits cannot sell any items that compete with market vendors such as drinks, food, and crafts. Products that can be sold for fundraising include items such as raffle tickets and services. Individual children (not groups of kids) 14 years and under are allowed to sell items that have been pre-approved by the market manager. (groups of children that want to raise money by holding a bake sale are not allowed in the non-profit space but instead can check into getting a vending space next door at the flea market behind Christ Church)
- Non-profits will need to comply with the same safety regulations as market vendors.
Arrival and Set-Up: All non-profits, and groups tabling in the non-profit space be set-up and ready no later than 9:00 a.m. and must stay the duration of the market. No cars are allowed on the lot, please load and unload from State Street. Please allow the full season vendors easy access to State Street — do not load or unload at the State Street entrance at the start or end of the market when the lot is busy with vendors setting up..
Market Canopies/Umbrellas: If you will be using a canopy or umbrella, it must be weighted and secured. You will not be able to set up canopies/tents/umbrellas without adequate weight to hold them down during winds, regardless of conditions at set-up.
Thank you and please contact the market manager with any questions at 793-8347 or email@example.com
