About Market Day

On specified Wednesdays in the Fall and Spring, the Student Union offers an incredible opportunity for student organizations and vendors to showcase their organization or products to a wide array of the UCF population at our popular Market Day. Nowhere else on campus is there a greater opportunity to be exposed to the thousands of students who traverse the ‘heart of campus’ each week.

From 9 AM – 5 PM (8 AM – 9 AM setup) each Wednesday, students, and vendors can reserve a 10×10 space on the Union’s outdoor South Patio, along with a table (6′ x 30″) and two chairs from which to promote their product or organization. Although Market Days are held on an uncovered portion of the patio, organizations may bring their tents by obtaining advance permission from the Market Day Coordinator. The Fall 24 Market Day request form will open Mid-July 2024.

When making Market Day requests, please be prepared to provide your organization’s name, address, and contact info as well as the nature of your company or organization. The Student Union reserves the right to discontinue or deny business at their discretion. Please also be advised that vendors must pay in full for all dates requested
