The Community Table is a dedicated space at each of our farmers markets for community education and outreach. We welcome area nonprofit organizations that share a similar mission to LVHMC. We are interested in building community around healthy, local, and sustainable food.
Thinking about participating in a market? To help you make your decision, please consider the following:
Can you offer learning moments for our customers?
What is the audience you plan to connect with?
How will you impart the importance of locally grown food, local agriculture, healthy eating, or a healthy lifestyle?
Community Table Rules
The Community Table is reserved for non-profit organizations.
The Community Table must be reserved in advance.
Community Table staff must arrive at the market to set up during the allotted time.
Tents, tables, and chairs are not provided by LVHMC. Organizations are responsible for providing their own tents, weights, chairs, tables, signage, and display materials for the 10’x10’ stall space.
Organizations must abide by the weights and tent policies of LVHMC.
No electricity is available at the market site.
No products of any kind may be sold at Community Tables—all items available at a Community Table must be available free of charge. Donation jars are permitted.
Community Table staff must remain until market closing, regardless of weather. (Please note that we are a rain-or-shine market; see the LVHMC Rules of Operation for weather regulations.)
Participants must clean up their stall area at the end of the market.
All Community Table activities must be conducted at the Community Table stall. Staffers are requested not to move around the market to “sell” their message in any way that would disturb marketgoers or Vendors. Any special requests should be communicated to the Market Outreach Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All visible signage must be family friendly.
Liability insurance is strongly recommended.
