Community Groups

Portland Farmers Market proudly offers booth space at several of our markets for community groups to engage with our shoppers and provide information on the work they are doing to improve our community.  We offer space at our Lents International, King, and Kenton markets. Please note that we are no longer hosting community groups at our PSU Market because the market is at capacity.

If we are interested and able to offer your group a booth space at one of our markets we will get back to you.

Community Group Guidelines

We prioritize:

  • Non-profit or community-serving groups.
  • Groups with a local connection, or particular relevance, to the neighborhood the market is located in.
  • Groups who have a major focus in a topic related to local food and/or farms, or other aspects of our mission, vision, and values.
  • Important information:

  • Organizations may be scheduled for one date per season at each market as space allows.
  • PFM operates rain or shine.
  • Participating organizations must staff their booth for the entirety of market.
  • Failure to arrive on-time or leaving early may impact ability to participate in future markets.
  • Community groups who participate at the market are NOT ALLOWED to:

  • Sell items from the booth (including raffle tickets), or fund raise (including donation jars and in-kind services).
  • Leave the market early unless special permission is granted from market management.
  • Give away items that directly impact the sales of market vendors.
  • Be political or religious in a partisan manner.
  • We do allow:

  • Political issue advocacy for issues that directly relate to Oregon and Washington farmers.
