Farmers' Market

Requesting a Spot

Step 1: Learn more and apply


Visit the Downtown SLO Farmers' Market page for Cal Poly Clubs & Organizations to learn about participating in Farmers' Market and how to apply.

Step 2: Provide a certificate of liability insurance

With the exception of Greek organizations, clubs no longer need to submit Certificates of Liability Insurance. 

Instructions for Greek Organizations

If you are affiliated with an organization, such as a national fraternity or sorority, you can save money by asking for a certificate of liability insurance from them. If you're not sure, you can always ask.

The Certificate of Liability Insurance should provide Commercial General Liability Coverage of

  • $1,000,000.00 per occurrence
  • $1,000,000.00 aggregate

Here's an example: Certificate of Liability Insurance Sample

You should email your affiliated organization to see if they are able to provide this. Here is an example you can copy:
