Cheverly Community Market’s Nonprofit and Community Group Policy

In order to best fulfill our mission - building a vibrant market that strengthens a sense of community, supports fresh food from local sources, and encourages local business and arts - the Cheverly Community Market will include one fundraising/vending table and up to four informational tables per market for nonprofit and community groups. These tables will be allocated on a first come-first served basis through the online application form. In all cases, the organization must meet our criteria, must be confirmed by the market manager (or a board member) prior to the requested market date, and must abide by our market rules as detailed below.


Criteria:

All groups applying for these slots must either be recognized by the Town of Cheverly as having community group status, or be a local 501c3 organization. The person applying must hold a position as a representative of the organization. If applying for fundraising/vending table, sale items must be approved in advance by the Market Manager and must be in line with the mission of the Cheverly Community Market. Each organization will only be granted one free fundraising/vending per season but can pay for additional markets. Organizations can have an informational table at multiple markets.

Non-profit/Community groups must abide by these rules:

  • Individuals or groups may not interfere with Market operations by aggressively soliciting signatures, donations or attention. Any activities undertaken at the Market may not block pedestrian traffic flow or access to assigned seller stall spaces.

  • Community groups are responsible for the set-up and tear down of their tent, including tables and chairs from town storage. Market volunteers can help those unable to carry or lift. 

  • All individuals or groups must stay with their tables or displays. At no time may representatives walk through the Market handing out information.

  • Individuals or groups must accept the spaces assigned to them by the Market Manager.

  • Each organization or individual appearing at an Information Table must prominently display its name.

  • The Market retains the right to regulate the time, place and manner of activities relating to displays, signs, posters, placards and other expressions of the interests represented.

  • The use of "fighting words", obscenities, grisly or gruesome displays or highly inflammatory slogans likely to provoke a disturbance may be prohibited by the Market Manager.

  • No political campaigning is permitted at any time within Cheverly Community Market.

  • Community groups need to provide proof of insurance.

  • The Board of Directors has authorized the Market Manager to enforce the above rules. Violation could mean immediate or seasonal expulsion from the Market. Appearance at the Market does not constitute an endorsement from the Cheverly Community Market of any group, cause, or opinion.
