A large, linear pavilion on the northwest side of Clary-Shy Park. The pavilion was designed to accommodate the vendors and customers of the Columbia Farmers Market, as well as serve as a rental facility for the community when it is not used by the Columbia Farmers Market or Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture. Phase I of the pavilion construction is completed and accommodates 38 covered vendor spaces, parking for each vendor, and a 30-foot-wide shopping aisle for market customers along with restrooms and drinking fountains. Additional Farmers Market vendors conduct business from tents set up on either side of the pavilion. Vinyl curtains are used to create a heated indoor space for winter market use. When the final phase of construction is completed, the pavilion will provide covered space and parking for 98 vendors.
When the MU Health Care Pavilion is not in use by members of the Friends of the Farm partnership, the pavilion will be available for rental to community members and organizations in need of a large outdoor space or heated indoor space for events and meetings.
If your event needs to use outdoor space in addition to the pavilion, a park special use permit may be needed.
