- COLLABORATE WITH US -
Throughout the year, our Market provides an appealing destination for locals and visitors to gather, supports the agricultural efforts of area farmers, and promotes the work of local organizations that strive to improve the health of our community.
Several thousand people attend our outdoor downtown market each Saturday, and we are growing our Wednesday and winter Graham Park markets as well!
We rely on the generous support of community members, local businesses, and organizations to sustain and grow our successful marketplace. We invite you to collaborate with us through one of our market sponsorship opportunities (below). If you have something different in mind, we would be happy to work with you to build a custom sponsorship plan!
