Thank you for your interest in the Bellingham Farmers Market. The Farmers Market welcomes nonprofit organizations to participate in the Market when space is available. It is important to know that the Market is often jam-packed with vendors and it can be difficult to accommodate special guests. The Market will, however, accept reservations from nonprofits for one Saturday during the season. If you are interested in reserving one day, please e-mail the Market firstname.lastname@example.org. We try to fit nonprofit organizations in to the Wednesday market as well on a space available basis.
The Market charges nonprofit organizations a $15 fee. Nonprofit organizations are not allowed to sell anything (donations may be accepted). Often, sheltered space is not available and nonprofits must provide their own canopies. Canopies must match the specifications of the Market canopies: 10 x 10, white, Easy Up or Caravan brands. All canopies must be anchored or tied down at all times (wind is a major problem). The nonprofit needs to bring everything else needed to participate in the Market, table, chairs, etc.
The Market does have a limited amount of canopies for rent. Please refer to our equipment rental information for more information. We encourage you to reserve equipment ahead of time to ensure availability.
Thanks for thinking of the Market and considering it as a public outreach opportunity for your organization.
