Our Process

Like what you see? This is our process.

  1. Submit your event using the buttons on this page or the Host An Event link.

  2. Each Tuesday, from 4pm to 5pm EST, our co-op meets to review event submissions / proposals. Please keep this in mind when sharing more about your event needs. If your event needs a quicker turn around time, please let us know by writing to hello@primeproduce.coop. We cannot promise to get back to you in time, but we will try our best.

  3. After our events review, a member of the co-op will reach out to you with any clarifying questions and to schedule a visit if your event is a good fit for our space. We evaluate event submissions based on the availability of the space, the availability of a venue host, and to ensure that events hosted in the space are not at odds with our co-op’s mission. That said, we cast a wide net in an effort to promote diversity in our space.

  4. For events we want to host, expect the turn around time to be one week from the moment you share more about your event to booking a date and time. This process can happen faster and is dependent on how close to our Tuesday weekly event review you submit an event. You will hear from us immediately following our Tuesday event review.
