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, and Carpenter’s Way boys’ home. Since opening in 2014, we’ve donated more than $71,600! So come on out and have a good time while supporting your community. – WE’LL SEE YOU THERE!
YARD & GARDEN

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, Paparazzi, 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!
The reservation system for regular weekly markets opens on the Monday evening before each market, and closes on Thursday evening. Reservations for our three special markets (the Spring Fling Craft Market, Fall Festival Market, and Christmas Craft Fair) open a few weeks before each event.
There are two ways to get a vendor space for a weekly market: you can just DROP IN on Saturday morning, or you can RESERVE a space here on our website.
TO GET A DROP-IN SPACE (spaces 34-63, 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.)
RESERVATIONS (spaces 2-33 only) can be made here on our website beginning 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.
Your reservation will hold your space until 8:30 on Saturday morning. After that time (at the manager’s discretion) it may be made available to someone else (although if you show up later, your fee is still good for a drop-in space that same day.)
Most spaces are 10 x 10 feet (some of the overflow spaces are smaller.) Bring your OWN tables and tent. Spaces 23-44 have LIMITED electricity; drop cords should be rated for outdoor use.
Your $10 space fee is a NON-REFUNDABLE donation to the Midland Methodist Men’s Club, which distributes the collected funds to deserving local charities. Since opening in 2014, we’ve donated more than $71,000!
VENDORS: The parking lot adjacent to the market field is intended for the use of your customers. After setting up, vendors will please park in either of the church parking lots across the street (feel free to park in 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 road sides along the market field; doing so blocks the view of the market, and creates a safety hazard for visitors walking onto the field.
