Support the Market

It is Saturday morning and as we look around the local farmers’ market, we see vendors setting out their products with care, crafting a display that best exhibits their hobby, passion, and source of income. Like treasure hunters, shoppers arrive, seeking desired items such as farm products, baked goods, produce, flowers, and handmade gems.  You’ll also see the smiling face of a child selling lemonade, as they learn the skills of creating a product and selling it.  As midday at the market approaches, a melody fills the air as musicians begin to play.  Their music is the art of thinking, with sounds for listeners to ponder as they shop.  As the market closes for the day, all who have attended find a sense of accomplishment and excitement to do it all again next week.

It is great to see the local producers and their neighbors gathering each week to share in the experiences of the market.  Each year, the Owen County Farmers’ Market strives to reach our community with fresh & healthy eating selections, educational demonstrations, and the promotion of the arts, with live entertainment.

We need your help to continue to grow the market and provide community activities.  A financial gift from you would be a tremendous help, as without you, we could never achieve so much.  You can donate at the level that works for you.  Friend of the Market donations start at $15, or you can become a Corporate Sponsor and enjoy many additional benefits for as little as $100.  Your donation is a great way to the show the community that local “farmers” are important to your business.

Each gift, no matter how large or small, is a valuable component of the market’s success.  Donations create the foundation that allows the market to sponsor events and community programs, create marketing, provide an educational market booth, and provide resources for farmers, community members .  Together we are growing our community, Sweet Owen, sustaining local vendors, and providing education to young and old.
