The Springfield Farmers’ Market strives to provide a vibrant space for the community to gather, shop the wares of some of the best farms in the area, and socialize. The market will offer local vegetables, freshly grown flowers, crafts, baked goods, and even some hot/ready to eat foods. The market will also offer FREE space for community groups.
Community Groups are invited to join in on the market fun! There will be space at the market for two Community Groups each week.
Community groups may consist of; Churches, Area non-profits, School groups, Clubs, etc. Groups are welcome to have a FREE table at the market.
Spaces are FREE! Groups can sign up for 1 market date per month unless space is available. Spaces are 10’ by 10’, be sure to bring your own table, chairs, tent, etc (If you need extra space, tables or chairs please bring it to the Market Managers attention prior to the day you are showing up to ensure availability.)
Groups may hand out flyers, host drawings, give-aways, etc. Please let Market Manager know of your group’s intentions at time of sign-up.
Selling items or fundraisers are generally not allowed, however special approval may be granted on a case by case basis. Please keep in mind that groups will not be allowed to sell items that directly compete with vendors who have paid for their spaces. Please contact market manager if your group wishes to sell items.
In exchange for the free space at the market, groups are asked to help the market manager with the set-up and take down of the market (i.e. moving picnic tables, setting up market tents, putting up parking cones, signs, etc).
As a Non-Profit group, please do your best to get the word out about the market! The more visitors we have the better the market will be for both of us!
Keep in mind that once your group reserves a space, your group is expected to show up. Absence from the market will result in loss of privileges for the rest of the season. If for any reason you group needs to cancel please notify the Market Manager one week prior to the date your group is planning to attend.
To reserve your community group’s spaces/dates call or email Market Manager Bob Swansey at 248-249-1592, firstname.lastname@example.org, with the dates you group would like to join the market and we will send you an application. We looking forward to working with you!
