The Indiana County Farmers' Market is looking for sponsors!


Please email us at indianafarmmarket@gmail.com 
if you're interested in becoming a sponsor and helping the market grow!

The Indiana County Farmers' Market is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization

Why We Need Your Support

Vendors retain 100% of their profits.  This helps to provide a satisfying experience and develops loyal vendors.  However, the minimal funding received from vendors' fees leaves little room for growth and expansion.  

Additional funds are required for:
  • Printed materials for marketing, publicity, and education
  • Maintenance of our card swipe system for credit, debit, and SNAP transactions
  • Foodbucks incentive program
  • Printed materials for marketing, publicity, and education
  • Improved signage and display materials
  • Future market manager position (paid employment)
Your generosity will ensure the continued growth of the Indiana County Farmers’ Market.  

Our new card swipe system opens up a whole new client base for our vendors by inviting SNAP clients to shop the market.  This program also increases access to fresh, healthy foods, creates a sense of community, and offers assistance to struggling families.  The Foodbucks incentive program encourages SNAP customers to buy local by doubling their market dollars.  

The market as a whole, as well as the SNAP program and other programs, can always benefit from increased marketing and publicity, bringing new customers and additional revenue to our vendors.

Offering compensation for an individual to devote 10-20 hours per week will bring growth, sustainability and integrity to the market.  This individual will cultivate the previously established online presences, promote the market through advertising, secure artists/organizations which will draw larger crowds and search for more quality vendors to diversify products being sold. 


These above mentioned opportunities will provide market expansion which can have profound positive effects on the economic growth of Indiana County, where poverty is increasing.  It strives to ensure that Indiana County Farmers’ Market is a place where the community can gather to promote healthy lifestyles while supporting local community members. 

Thank you for supporting our market!
