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

Why We Need Your Support
Vendors retain 100% of their profits.  This ensures satisfaction with their experience which, in turn, produces loyal vendors.  However, the minimal funding received from the vendor’s fees leaves little room for growth and expansion.  Additional funds are required for (see budget for detailed cost):
·       Market manager position (paid employment)
·       Installation/ maintenance of a system to enable vendors to accept SNAP benefits
·       Improved signage
·       Printed marketing materials which includes:
o   Educational handouts
o   Recipes
·       Display tables for community tents

Your generosity will ensure the continued growth of the Indiana County Farmers’ Market.  Offering compensation for an individual to devote 20 hours per week will bring growth, sustainability and integrity to the market.  This individual will cultivate the previously established online presences through Facebook and the blog, Indianafarmmarket.blogspot.com, promote the market through advertising, secure artists/organizations which will draw larger crowds and search for more quality vendors to diversify products being sold. 

Giving low income individuals access to the market by installing a system to accept SNAP benefits will open up a whole new client base for the vendors and create a sense of community, offering assistance to those who are experiencing job loss and tough economic times. 

These above mentioned opportunities will provide unlimited 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.
