Who We Are
The Midland Community Farmers Market is operated as a non-profit fundraising function of the Mens’ Club of Midland United Methodist Church, and is offered as a service to the people of the Midland area of Georgia’s Muscogee and Harris Counties. All vendor fees go to support the club’s local outreach ministries, including House of Heroes, Camp Dream, Ronald McDonald House of Columbus, Valley Rescue Mission, and Carpenter’s Way boys’ home. Since opening in 2014, we’ve donated more than $95,400! So come on out and have a good time while supporting your community. – WE’LL SEE YOU THERE!

BE A VENDOR
What can I sell at the market?
All kinds of things, as long as it’s something YOU or your family have made.
We especially like to see locally-grown produce, but our vendors have also had good results selling fresh eggs, homemade cheese and other dairy items, pickles and relishes, jams and jellies, local honey, flower bulbs, potted plants, tomato and other garden plants, cut flowers, fresh bread and other baked goods, live chickens and rabbits, birdhouses, picnic tables, handmade pottery, cutting boards, walking sticks and canes, toys and other folk art, original paintings, quilts, crocheting, and other fabric crafts, soaps, candles, and much more.
What isn’t allowed?
Don’t worry, we don’t restrict what you sell on a “somebody’s already selling that” basis. But our market is meant as a showcase for HOMEMADE ITEMS ONLY, made by YOU or YOUR FAMILY. So…
- No resale: just selling items you bought elsewhere
- No franchise sales: (no Scentsi, Mary Kay, LuLaRoe, Avon, Color Street, etc.)
- No “yard sale” or flea market type items
But if you’re not sure, just send us an email.
What does it cost?
Your vendor fees go to support deserving Muscogee and Harris County charities selected by the members of the Men’s Club of Midland United Methodist Church.
For our regular weekly markets, the minimum donation is only $10, with no contracts, no big investment, and no long-term commitments, so you only pay on the weeks you decide to come sell. We don’t charge for Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, children 13 and under, church members of Midland UMC, or for charitable groups or anyone whose sales are a fund-raiser for a charitable purpose.
What do I need to do?
If possible, send us an email before your first time, with your name, phone number, and what you’re thinking of selling. Aside from that, you can just show up on the Saturdays when you want to sell, check in with the market manager, and get ready to greet your customers!
You’re going to like the relaxed, casual atmosphere of the Midland Community Farmers Market. Selling here is a great way to spend a Saturday morning while supporting your community, making a little money, and meeting some wonderful new friends!
There are two ways to get a vendor space for a Saturday morning regular weekly market: DROP-IN, or RESERVE.
To get a DROP-IN space (spaces 40-63, plus 65 and 66) simply show up on Saturday morning and check in with the market manager before setting up. The fee is $10 (cash only, please.)
Online RESERVATIONS (spaces 2-39) open here on our website beginning about 6:00 on Monday evening, until they are sold out. Just choose from the list of available spaces, and pay via credit card, debit card, or PayPal. (Reservations cost a dollar more, to cover payment processing fees.)
Please be set up by 30 minutes before opening time. After that (at the manager’s discretion) your unfilled space may be made available to someone else if needed.
The reservation system for regular weekly markets opens on the Monday evening before each market, and closes once all 38 of the reservation spaces are sold out, although more than three dozen drop-in spaces will still be available Saturday morning. Just show and check in with the market manager, who will help you select a space.
For our three special event markets (the Spring Fling Craft Market, Fall Festival Market, and Christmas Craft Fair) ALL 106 spaces are by online reservation only (there are no drop-in spaces.) Reservations for special event markets open a few weeks before each event (reservation dates may be found in the “Read More” section for each special event market.)
Your reservation fee is a NON-REFUNDABLE donation to the Midland UMC Men’s Club, which distributes the collected funds to deserving local charities. Since opening in 2014, our vendors have donated more than $95,400!
VENDOR Parking (weekly markets)
VENDORS: The two parking lots adjacent to the market field are intended for the use of your CUSTOMERS ONLY. After unloading, vendors will please park on the grass parking lot, or in either of the church parking lots across the street (feel free to use any of the handicapped spaces; the handicap restrictions apply only to parking on Sundays.) You may also angle park along the treeline on the right side of Warm Springs Road, past the market field.
Please DO NOT park on the grassy roadsides near the corner by the market field or church yard; doing so presents a safety hazard for both traffic and pedestrians.
