III. C. 8. Nonprofit Booths

Nonprofit booths are available as an opportunity for local 501(c)(3) non-profit entities to achieve their outreach goals and who have a desire to engage with the community. The mission of the Chattanooga Market is to promote the exchange of fresh, quality, local food, bringing together growers and artisans who produce the highest quality goods in the area. Hosting area nonprofits allows for our organization to continue to carry out its mission each year. When a business or community organization partners with Chattanooga Market, it is a direct commitment to the local economy, the local food-shed, area artists, craftsmen, musicians, and even other non-profits who are provided a platform to sell, fundraise, and thrive.

A nonprofit organization may reserve a free booth space one Sunday per season between the months of July and November. If the nonprofit wishes to participate in more than one event, a second booth space starts at $500 per Sunday and is subject to booth availability. The nonprofit will get a 10 x 10 reserved space for their organization (nonprofit provides tent, tables, and chairs). The nonprofit’s banner can be displayed (supplied by the nonprofit) at the tent/table/space. The nonprofit will also have the ability to engage with our audience on a one-to-one basis. Any fundraising, commerce, or transactional activities must be approved by Market staff before such activities will be permitted. Spots are secured upon receipt of the nonprofit’s tax exemption form. The Market has room to host two nonprofits per event, and spots are awarded on a first-booked basis.

The Market has the right to refuse space to any organization for any reason.
