The Carytown Merchants Association (CMA) is a group of volunteers that own or manage businesses in Carytown.  Membership to the CMA comes with several networking benefits, including a linked listing on our website, inclusion in promotional posts through our social media accounts as well as cross-promotional opportunities with fellow-CMA members and community sponsors, such as the Richmond Kickers.


As a member, you will be invited to attend our monthly membership meetings as well as our social and networking events held bi-monthly.  You will also be invited to participate in beautification projects along Cary Street as well as community outreach events throughout the year.  Monthly member meetings are typically held at 8:30 am on the first Wednesday of each month at Ellwood Thompson's Beet Café.

As a final benefit, you will be given priority at the annual Watermelon Festival.  Your membership dues ($300/year) will cover the cost of one booth at the festival (a $360 savings).  

Should you be interested in joining the CMA, you can do so at any time by sending a request to or clicking the link below.  Annual dues will not be requested until the anniversary date of your original payment.
