COMMUNITY BOOTH & DEMONSTRATIONS
As part of the Waco Downtown Farmers Market (WDFM)’s mission to enrich the culture of our community, we are happy to offer local organizations and small business a space to share their good work through tabling and demonstrations at the market. Due to interest in the Community Booth, we can only host one community organization each Saturday. The Community Booth is booked in advance and on a first-come, first served basis. We place highest priority on organizations and local businesses that emphasize outreach and demonstrations related to Eating, Growing, Making, and Moving – but whose business does not meet the standard vendor criteria to participate.
If you are interested in having a booth at the Waco Downtown Farmers Market or learning more about the Community Booth, please review the information below.
Non-profit organizations and small businesses with a focus on Eat/Grow/Make/Move are eligible to be community booths at the market. Organizations and businesses may also contact the Market about sponsorship opportunities.
