Are you a local business with an interest in helping our Farmers’ Market thrive and grow? Consider becoming a market sponsor!

ABOUT THE MARKET:
The Healdsburg Certified Farmers’ Market, at 41 years old, is one of the oldest markets in California, and as such is beloved in the community. Filled with over two-dozen local farms, meat producers, an expansive variety of seafood, several bakeries, fresh pasta, tortillas, oil and vinegar, chocolates, beautiful handmade craft, and much more, it shines as one of the strongest farmers’ markets in the county, if not the state. There’s excellent live music weekly, and several special events throughout the season.  

MARKET DEMOGRAPHICS:
The market sees upwards of 500-1000 people per market each week. Healdsburg is an upscale community and it’s reflected in the farmers’ market customer base. It’s also a community which cares about its farms and agricultural roots, so many families come to the market; parents teaching their kids to appreciate where their food comes from. We also see an exceptional amount of tourists. With observational data only to go on, Saturday market is likely two-thirds local and one-third tourist. Tuesday market is fifty/fifty.

WHY SPONSOR THE MARKET?
The market can offer visual exposure via a variety of mediums to show the community and Healdsburg visitors that you care about our agricultural heritage, the tradition of farmers’ markets, and our very special market.  Via logos on banners at the markets themselves, on our website, and even having a booth at the market can expose you to thousands who love the market and want to support those who feel the same.

WHY IS THE MARKET ASKING FOR SPONSORS?
In 40 years we’ve never reached out to the community, but the market has struggled in recent years, and although we’re a non-profit, we need to keep our coffers filled enough to keep us afloat.

ARE YOU A 501C3? CAN I DEDUCT THIS AS A CHARITABLE DONATION?
The market itself is not a 501C3, but we are fortunate to work with our wonderful Friends of the Healdsburg Farmers’ Market who will be handling all sponsorship via their non-profit status.
