Pro tips on designing your farmers market tents

Every brand is distinct, and your farmers market tent should be too. To ensure your tent stands out, here are some essential best practices to follow when designing your custom pop-up tent.

1. Use Pantone Color System

The first thing to consider is your use of color.

The Pantone Color System offers a significant advantage in consistency and branding. Unlike CMYK, Pantone colors are standardized, ensuring that your chosen hues remain consistent across all marketing materials. This consistency is vital not just for visual appeal but also for brand recognition, as consistent color schemes help customers easily identify and remember your brand.

The Pantone system's broader color spectrum, compared to CMYK, allows for more precise and vivid color choices, making your tent stand out in a busy market. This ensures a seamless match from digital design to physical product, enhancing the overall aesthetic of your farmers' market presence.

2. Do not use white for canopy background

We also recommend opting for a background color other than white for your custom canopy. While white canopies may initially appear clean and professional, they are challenging to maintain and can quickly look dingy, diminishing the professional image you're aiming for with a custom tent.

Instead, consider choosing darker or more vibrant colors that not only conceal dirt and wear better but also attract more attention.

3. Maximizing your canopy space

Anything you print on the peak of your custom pop-up tent will be seen from across the farmers market. This is the space you use to attract customers to your stall and is a great spot for things like your logo, your brand name, or a picture of what you sell.

The valence is only seen by customers who are standing close to your stall. This is where many brands print things like their phone numbers, their websites, or their social media information.

What to Look for When Shopping Farmers Market Tents

When shopping for canopy tents for farmers markets, there are many factors to consider. For instance, you need to establish the type of product you'll be selling and how frequently you’ll be attending market days. With that said, here are the factors to consider to bring the perfect buy your way.


Make your products stand out at the farmers’ market with MVP Visuals' custom tent designs. Adding your unique logo or image creates a distinctive and memorable appeal, ensuring you're easily recognized by returning customers and distinct from those with standard, boring tents.

Our customization options include:

  • Side and back walls in either half or full heights, providing flexibility in design and functionality.
  • Full color sublimation printing, ensuring vibrant, fade-resistant graphics that catch the eye and withstand various weather conditions.
  • Color matching and limitless design options, allowing for a design as unique as your brand.


All our canopy tents are designed to ensure a secure and comfortable environment:

  • Wind Resistance: Our tents are built to withstand various wind conditions, ensuring stability and safety.
  • Heat Regulation: The fabric allows for effective heat regulation, keeping the interior cool and comfortable.
  • UV Protection: The material offers excellent UV protection, safeguarding you and your products from harmful sun rays.
  • Waterproofing: Engineered to be water-resistant, our tents provide reliable shelter in rainy conditions.

Each of these features is made possible by our use of 600d polyester, a high-density fabric known for its durability and resilience. This material not only stands up to diverse weather challenges but also meets safety requirements with its fire-retardant properties, making it an ideal choice for farmers' market tents.


Understanding that farmers' market vendors need to set up quickly in the morning and start their day without delay, we've designed our tents with an effortless setup in mind. All our canopy tents are designed with a pop-up mechanism, ideal for quick and easy assembly, even for first-timers. 

The simplicity of the pop-up design means the frame is pre-assembled, allowing you to set up the farmers market tent in a few simple steps, much like opening an umbrella. This design not only saves valuable time during market preparations but also ensures hassle-free takedown at the day's end.


Cementing our commitment to quality, our farmers' market tents come with a lifetime warranty on frames made of silver 40 mm Hex Aluminum, a testament to their durability, wind resistance, and longevity. 

This high-grade aluminum ensures each tent is robust and reliable, easily withstanding frequent use and challenging outdoor conditions. Its unique design provides enhanced stability against strong winds, while being lightweight for effortless transport and setup. The material's resistance to corrosion and wear further extends the tent's lifespan, maintaining both its strength and aesthetic appeal over time.

Size Considerations for Farmers Market Tents

When selecting a canopy tent for a farmers' market, consider both its size and alignment with market regulations, as well as how you'll utilize the space. Whether you need areas for product display, customer seating, or demonstrations, these factors will guide you in choosing the tent size that best suits your operation's specific needs.

  • 10x10 Canopies: This is the standard size for farmers' market tents and fits well in most vendor spaces. A 10x10 canopy typically accommodates up to 5 people comfortably, making it ideal for small to medium displays.
  • 10x20 Canopies: For vendors with more extensive displays or a larger product range, a 10x20 canopy offers ample space. This size can comfortably fit about 10 people and is suited for interactive displays or larger inventories.

Market Space Regulations: Always check the farmers' market rules regarding tent sizes. Larger tents, like the 10x20, might not be allowed in all markets or could lead to additional fees due to their larger footprint. Understanding these regulations is crucial in choosing the right tent size.
