Politics at the Farmers Market
The Woodland Park Farmers Market (TCFMA/WPFM) is and must be a politics-free zone.
We are a federally tax exempt nonprofit organization under IRC 501c3 and thus prohibited from political activity.
We are specifically prohibited from involvement with any candidate or legislation. The prohibition extends to influencing, engaging, supporting, opposing, or taking any position, on any candidate, campaign, issue, legislation, party or platform. All politically motivated activity including (in an abundance of caution) voter registration is thus prohibited within the Market.
This policy extends to the city streets and Park space where the WPFM is held, and is operational during Market hours of operation, 8 am to 1 pm, every Friday, from June through September.
During the hours that the Market occupies city space, that space ceases being a public forum temporarily and is instead deemed a private space during those hours.
