Dear Friends and Supporters,

.

2020 was a challenging year to say the least.

Faced with a bushel of lemons, our market was able to make lemonade in record time! Within one week of the lockdown taking effect, we shifted gears and became an online market providing a safe, contact-free method for delivering local food and products to our community of supporters, all without emergency financial support. It is an accomplishment we are very proud to have achieved.

 

As of this April, we will have been online for a full year.

Looking towards the summer, we are planning on returning to the lawn of the Memorial Centre for our ninth season and we could use your help. Though we are all looking forward to an in-person market, we need to ensure that safety for both vendors and the community is a priority.

 

In 2021, we invite you to help us prepare for our next big transition.

By becoming a sponsor, your business will:

  • Be seen supporting the shop-local economy in a safe and effective manner
  • Be heard supporting local artists and entertainers
  • Be known for growing a vibrant local food community and economy

 

 

All sponsorship funds received support the development, community engagement, and promotion of the farmers’ market activities: performances, food education content, special events and arts.

 

In turn, we offer these benefits:

 

  • $50 FRIENDLY FERN 

    • (NEW! For individuals and families only)
