The Main Street Farmers Market offers Washington area nonprofit organizations the opportunity to promote themselves and their activities at the Market. We will announce your participation in our newsletter, sent to nearly 1800 email addresses every week.
There are a few practical matters and a few minor restrictions. The Market is held every Thursday, from May 20th through October 31st, 3:00 to 6:00 pm. You will need to supply any display items or literature that you’d like to use. You may set up at any time between 1:00 and 2:30 pm and the Market asks that you stay until 6:00 (barring bad weather).
The Market also asks that participating organizations use their appearance to promote their good works and that they not use their appearance to solicit funds, sell raffle tickets, or sell other items without prior approval.
If you would like to participate, please complete the market participation form. Thanks for your interest. Market Participation Request Form

Are Senior FMNP (Farmers Market Nutrition Program) coupons accepted?
Many of our vendors welcome FMNP payment vouchers. These vendors generally display a sign indicating their participation. FMNP offers coupons to low-income seniors to buy fresh, unprepared fruits, vegetables, and herbs at local farmers’ markets. Questions about that program can be answered here: Senior FMNP Fact Sheet. We understand that this program may lose its funding, but at least for now, existing FMNP coupons are being honored by the State and accepted by our participating vendors.
