Hoping to see everyone there!!
By way of background…in 2015, we conducted our first Market Membership drive, and it was a great success. We received broad community support to sustain our vibrant market. This summer we ran another membership drive, in a low-key fashion by reaching out to community members who have expressed support for the market in the past. And we were thrilled with the outpouring of support.
But we also want to reach out to EVERYONE who would like to become part of the community fabric supporting the market. You are all welcome to join us and partake of the benefits of membership! Check out the below categories to see which level of membership makes sense for you. Please see the “Our Thanks” page for a listing of our current members.
Your gift in any amount will help sustain our local economy and community, and all members are invited to attend our annual post-season potluck supper.
Here’s the breakdown of contribution levels and their (free) rewards. Of course, you can also select any rewards available at a lesser donation level. We deeply appreciate your support!
$25 or more – Sprout: a baseball cap with our new locally-designed WFM logo
$50 or more – Seedling: an apron with our new locally-designed WFM logo
$100 or more – Gardener (Family): a WFM baseball cap, apron or tote, plus a free local sponsorship booth at the market
$200 or more – Farmer: two WFM items – choose among caps, totes and aprons
$250 or more – Steward: three WFM items – choose among caps, totes and aprons
Space is available at each market for a nonprofit group or organization to set up a booth for a fee of $20 per day to present educational materials or to promote their organization. If the group would like to participate as a WFM Community Partner on their market day – helping with market set-up and break-down tasks – the $20 fee will be waived and our Partnership will be publicized.
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. Please send inquiries to [email protected] about the pricing options available for a Local Sponsorship Booth.
