Music at the Market

*UPDATE 5/1/20*

Farmers markets have long been places to gather and build community. However, this season we must physically distance and resist the urge to linger and socialize. We each have a critical role to play to slow down the spread of COVID-19.

In order to accommodate physical distancing requirements and help keep our community safe, the Northeast Farmers Market is suspending activities where people gather, which includes live music.


We hope to continue this tradition in 2021. Thank you for your understanding.  

Music is a valued part of the Saturday Market. Each week we feature a vibrant mix of live, local musicians that add to the festive atmosphere.


Scheduled music:

Performers may fill out the policy form and arrange for a date and time to perform under a designated 10 x 10 canopy. We welcome music that will be at a moderate volume, is family-friendly, an enjoyable skill level, and have a positive vibe.

Buskers must check in with the market manager before they play, and are given a designated spot/time, if available. Buskers are not guaranteed space and will be asked to leave if they are disruptive or unsuitable for the markets.

Some guidelines to keep in mind: music is kept at a low volume so as not to interfere with market conversations and sales; performers play for tips; the market does not provide any equipment.

If you would like to play for our guests at the Saturday Market in 2021, please email


We will accepting applications from January 1st, 2021 until the schedule is filled.
