Gulfport Fresh Market Offers Free Space for Non-Profits

GULFPORT, FL: The Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market continues its program of offering one free vendor space each week for community non-profit organizations. The Fresh Market is a year-round event, attracting hundreds of visitors each week. Groups may use the space to provide free information, promote and sell tickets to upcoming events, offer community outreach, raise funds, or sell items for fund-raising. Any items to be sold must be pre-approved by Market managers. All funds raised in any manner must be for the benefit of the non-profit organization, rather than any individual(s) or for-profit entity.

The free space for non-profits is currently being scheduled and any interested and qualified non-profit groups may apply to use the space as available in upcoming weeks and months. Non-profits that have made use of the space in recent months include library boosters, historical societies, environmental advocacy groups, community health organizers, art and theatre groups, veterans groups, animal rescue organizations and many others.

For more information and to apply, please contact Laura Garrison, Fresh Market Coordinator by email to
