Performing artists are recognized as significant contributors to the vibrant atmosphere of our markets. Therefore, the market welcomes one performance group each market day. Types of entertainment accepted: musicians, dancers, puppet theatre, chalk artists, jugglers and magicians. The market does not provide any equipment.


  • Performances must be appropriate for all ages. Except for at the Bexley Farmers Market, performers must play original music or songs within the public domain, as Common Greens does not maintain music copyright licenses.

  • Donations for performances may be accepted passively in an instrument case or other receptacle provided for that purpose by the performer. The receptacle may include a written sign, which informs the public that such donations are sought. No performer shall actively solicit donations by word of mouth, gesture, mechanical devices, or second parties. 

  • No performer shall treat any person in a manner that is rough, menacing, vulgar, profane or abusive. 

  • Drinking of alcoholic beverages or performing while intoxicated is prohibited. Smoking while performing is prohibited. 

  • Performers are responsible for moderating the volume of their performance to a level appropriate to the surroundings. Performers are responsible for respecting reasonable requests of nearby vendors regarding performance volume and crowd control.
