Community Tent

Community Tent

The Easton Farmers’ Market Community Tent offers local non-profit organizations the opportunity to share in the vibrant social gathering space created by the market in downtown Easton’s Centre Square.

The purpose of the Community Tent is to promote local non-profits and their community activities. Priority will be given to Easton-based organizations whose missions promote healthy living, the health and welfare of families and children, or environmental initiatives. EFM receives a large volume of requests for the Community Tent and regretfully cannot accommodate all requests.

Participating organizations are required to provide their own 6 ft. table, 10X10 canopy, and four 25-lb. tent weights.
