Sponsor Shoutout: Who We're Thankful For

Sponsor Shoutout: Who We’re Thankful For

November 21, 2016 |  by  |  Blog, Sponsor Shoutout  |  No Comments

Montavilla Farmers Market is celebrating ten seasons (and growing!), but we wouldn’t be here at all without the help of our vendors, customers, volunteers, and tremendous sponsors. Business and community support has been instrumental in the success of the market over our first ten years, and it’s sure to be vital for our next ten.

This Thanksgiving, we’re especially thankful for the support of the great folks at:

Mr. Plywood
Habitat for Humanity PDX ReStore
Synchro Solar
Hive of Industry
Portland City Dental
Chipotle (Pop Club Sponsorship)
Farmers Market Coalition
Flying Pie Pizzeria
AMC Bookkeeping & Tax Service
Artfullbelly (Chef Chance)
Farm Cart
Montavilla United Methodist Church
Montavilla Brew Works
Montavilla Jazz Festival
Mt. Tabor Restoration and Remodeling

There are several easy ways to get involved as a sponsor of the market. From individuals and small businesses, to established Montavilla mainstays, we’re looking for people who are excited about what our diverse neighborhood has to offer—and who believe that healthy, local food should be available to everyone.

Would you or someone you know like to partner with Montavilla Farmers Market? Reach out to us at sponsorship[at]montavillamarket.org to learn more about working together to create and sustain a vibrant marketplace in the heart of our community.

Do you have an idea for a food business or are you just starting your food business? Are you thinking about being a vendor at MFM? If so, the market recommends signing up for the Business Foundations Course at Micro Mercantes. They will have local experts presenting on topics such as recipe development, sales channels, finances, food licensing, business licensing, insurance, marketing and more. The course takes place in November and December, perfect timing for applying to be a vendor in 2017.

A required program orientation takes place next Wednesday, November 2nd at the Portland Mercado. Get in touch with Micro Mercantes to sign up!
