At this time, applications are being accepted for June 6 or later; note that filming during busy summer months is only considered for non-peak hours on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Requests to film or shoot photography at the Market are usually needed a minimum of 10 business days prior to the proposed film date, with larger/more complicated productions requiring a longer lead time. Filming is not permitted on Fridays, weekends, or holiday weeks due to crowded conditions and the impact on Market businesses. To submit a request, please review our guidelines and complete our filming application
