You may set up 30 minutes before the market opens. Please be aware that the farmers/crafters will be setting up and you must stay out of their way.

You may stay until the market ends and must be gone 30 minutes after the market ends.

Where and how can you set up a booth?

You can setup your booth or table anywhere between the sandbox and Foster street. DO NOT drive on the Park’s grass.  Unload by parking at Foster Street, or unload quickly at Roney Street (the little service street that runs behind the Pavilion) and move your car when you’re done uploading.

What should you bring?

We only provide a space on the grass. You need to bring table, chair(s) and any items you want to display.

How should an organization sign up and pay for the spot?

A representative from the interested nonprofit should contact the DCP, Inc. office by sending in a completed ‘terms of use’ form no later than 2 weeks before the date they want to be at the park.

When you are contacted that you have a space, a $25 payment should be sent to DCP, Inc. to hold the spot.

How many times a month can one organization be at the park?

Each organization may be at the park twice a month. If spots open up on other weeks, DCP Inc. will have the option to contact groups who might want to fill in the empty spots that week.

What are the constraints about giving or selling things at the nonprofit booths?

Nothing may be sold by the nonprofits. Nothing that competes with the farmers or the crafters (i.e. food or crafts) shall be given away. Things that advertise your organization (t-shirts, raffle tickets, bumper stickers, etc) are permissible to give away for free or by asking for a suggested
donation. If you are planning to have items to give away, you must have them approved beforehand.
