Information for musicians and entertainers
We love all kinds of music that is upbeat, family friendly and skilfully presented.
We have essentially have two types of performance opportunities at our farmers markets: busking (where performers show up on market day and ask the market manager if there is a spot for them to busk that day), or scheduled performances (where performers contact our office to arrange for a prescheduled date and time to perform).
Busking spots are not guaranteed and are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with room for two or at most 3 performers each market day. Scheduled performances are arranged in advance through our office, and take place under a 10 x 10 canopy, with room for several people in a group.
Several guidelines to keep in mind: music is kept at a low volume so as not to interfere with market conversations and sales (no drums); performers play for tips only; the markets do not provide any equipment. Buskers must check in with the market manager when they show up; if we can find space for you, we will. While electricity can be provided, acoustic is always preferred.
If you’re interested in securing a spot to provide music or entertainment at the market, please get in contact with us.
