The Fishers Farmers’ Market welcomes local nonprofit organizations, community groups, businesses, and individuals for informational tabling in a designated area adjacent to the market each Saturday.
Booth space for informational tables may only be used for information and outreach; no selling or active fundraising is allowed. The Fishers Farmers’ Market takes place on Saturday mornings from 8 a.m. to noon, and the fee is $20 per booth space per market day.
If your organization, group, or business is interested in having an informational table at the market, please complete the online registration form (registration opens in April) by noon on the Friday one week before your first requested date. You may register for multiple dates on the same form. If more than ten organizations/businesses register for a market date, a drawing will be held to determine which groups may participate on that date.
Individuals, groups, and businesses are not permitted to walk around the market distributing literature, gathering signatures, or otherwise actively engaging the public during market hours. Only registered information tabling participants may set up booths or tables in the Info Row area. Anyone not registered for Info Row who wishes to distribute information to the public must do so outside the market site.
The summer 2019 Fishers Farmers Market will run Saturday, May 4 through Saturday, October 26, 2019. Registration is now open for Info Row.
