Growth Opportunities

Did you know the Indiana County Farmers' Market is seeking sponsors this season?!! Please share this with any organization you feel might be interested and able to help our market continue to expand, always thriving to provide our community the freshest produce around, as well as a healthy, family centered, weekly community event!  

Below is a snippet of our sponsorship letter.  If you're interested in becoming a sponsor please email us at and we will email you the full letter and/or visit you in person! 

Thank you as always for your support!!  *And check out our new 'Sponsors' tab :)*

The Indiana County Farmers’ Market is a not-for-profit, volunteer based organization. In order to ensure the best experience for our vendors we allow them to retain 100% of their profits.  This ensures satisfaction with their experience which, in turn, produces loyal vendors.  However, the minimal funding we receive from the vendor’s fees leaves little room for growth and expansion.  We require additional funds for:
  •  Improved signage
  • Marketing materials including educational materials & recipes
  • Display tables
  • Paid market manager/public relation’s position
  • Installation/ maintenance of a system to enable vendors to accept SNAP benefits
With your sponsorship, your organizations’ name will be listed as a sponsor on our website, email newsletter, signs, and marketing materials. 

Our market has continued to grow in the number of vendors we have and in our customer base!  We have an active online presence on Facebook and on our blog,, where we can connect with our close to 700 supporters/customers.  Our farmers market not only creates an opportunity for community members to buy locally grown produce, but also to support local artisans, enjoy live music, watch food demonstration prepared by local chefs, and be educated in the benefits of healthy eating and healthy lifestyles with our new Welcome to the Market and Children’s Tent!  Our market is a place where the community can gather to promote healthy lifestyles while supporting local community members!
