Craftsbury Farmers’ Market Sponsor Opportunities & Benefits
You are invited to join our current sponsors.
As you are aware, COVID-19 challenges have impacted all of us deeply. We recently received word from the Governor’s office that we CAN have a 2020 Farmers Market, albeit significantly modified to meet safety regulations. We are thrilled to be able to support our local growers and provide a valuable service to our community. While our farmers market will not encourage community gathering in the way of offering events and entertainment, it will provide a safe way for people to procure food and crafts directly from local farmers and food producers, via pre-orders AND with modified in-person shopping.
We recognize area businesses likely have your own COVID-19 challenges and have therefore adjusted our sponsorship levels for this season. We are asking for a one time donation of $100 to go toward extra expenses incurred at the Craftsbury Farmers Market due to pandemic precautions. Our plans for a modified market include:
Market-wide sanitation stations
Gloves, masks, and sanitizers for all vendors and shoppers
Extensive signage and physical reminders to maintaining social distancing
A designated pick-up area for pre-orders, with special pick-up precautions for vulnerable customers
In recognition of sponsorships, sponsor logos will be placed on professionally-printed signs throughout the market, on our website, social media and printed marketing materials.
Craftsbury Farmers Market leaders are dedicated to adjusting to COVID-19 practices, continuing to serve our communities and support our vendors. Again, we recognize that you likely have your own challenges right now, but hope that you will consider continued support of the Craftsbury Farmers Market for the 2020 season. Thank you for your consideration!
For the love of local food,
