Applications are being accepted for the 2022 Season! 
You must provide any example of your performance for review by market staff.
If you are not able to provide a link to a recording online, you may email an audio file to info@middletownmdfarmersmarket.com

While we typically book up all weeks of the market prior to the start of the season, new entertainers are encouraged to apply at any time during the season through the first week of October. 

We encourage potential entertainers to visit the market prior to submitting an application. 
However, no decisions regarding applications will be made during market hours.
