Our case for Sponsorship
What Have We Achieved?
In 2021, we operated a monthly farmers’ market from June-October. Markets were successful and well attended, signaling that we have strong community support. Our experience operating a monthly market has shown that a weekly model would better serve all of our stakeholders. Vendors need a more consistent outlet for their products and community members have regularly reported a desire for more frequent events.
Our market has been a 100% volunteer-run operation. While our volunteers are a fantastic group with diverse talents, they are not able to provide the time and expertise needed to run the market in an expanded capacity. In order to truly serve our stakeholders and fulfill our mission, RBFM needs to grow.
What Does Growth Look Like?
We plan to hold 17 weekly markets in 2022, in part by raising sufficient funds to hire an experienced part-time market manager who will support and guide our continued growth and success. In addition to expanding market frequency, RBFM is proposing strategies to keep vendor fees affordable, and seed a BIPOC vendor empowerment fund. With these initiatives we feel confident we will be able to attract vendors that reflect our community, see our vendor numbers grow, and provide them resources for success.
An expanded number of markets allows:
This is a unique opportunity to partner with and grow a community-based farmers market while showing the community that your business is invested and committed to local food and farmers.
