Community Groups at the market

Island Roots Market is pleased to announce we have space available for Not for Profit community groups and organizations to join our weekly market. Not for profit groups are an important part of every community and at Island Roots, we understand the challenges of getting your information out to the public. We want to make that easier by providing an established, busy location for you to advertise fundraisers, community events, information and updates as well as connect with new faces.  Please note that political parties are not considered Not for Profit community groups. The manager approves space allotments for Community groups.


WHAT WE ARE OFFERING: Free 10x10 space at our Wednesday summer market at Beban park.

All interested parties will be placed on a first-come-first-served list and are welcome to rejoin the list after completing their market date. You will need to provide your own tent (including set up), tables and information as well as have your own volunteers to operate your event.


**Due to the nature of the market we cannot allow you to hold fundraisers, or sell any products, promotional items or any other method of profiting. We would be more than happy to have you as a drop in vendor ($35 fee) if your product falls under the guidelines of the market (make it, bake it, grow it, catch it).
