Last summer we conducted our first Market Membership drive, and it was a great success! We received broad community support to sustain our vibrant market and cover our ongoing expenses for live music, website, promotion, and insurance. While the membership drive is technically over, we always welcome new members. A $25 membership comes with a free tote bag and an invitation to our annual meeting and potluck supper. Contributing and Supporting Members are recognized on our website, Facebook page, and Market Info Booth. Sustaining Members are also entitled to a Free Local Sponsorship Booth! Please see the OUR THANKS page for a listing of our current members.

Please stop by the Market Info Booth for details or check out our website’s MEMBERSHIP page. Please consider stepping up to join the market community!

*******************

Informational Booth:
Space is available at each market for a nonprofit group or organization to set up a booth for a nominal contribution of $5 per day to present educational materials or to promote their organization.

Local Sponsorship Booth:
Space is available at each market for a local organization to show its formal support for the farmers market and promote its products. This booth is considered a “sponsorship”, and the sponsoring organization can be of any kind, not necessarily associated with food, agriculture, or local craft.

Use of these booths is scheduled in advance on a first-come, first-assigned basis. These booths follow the same rules that apply to market vendors, which can be found at our NEW VENDORS page.
