Twitter Mention:

Over on Twitter, we’ll let our followers know that your business is a proud sponsor of the market—and that folks would be wise to stop by your store and website.

Website Listing:

All sponsors receive a listing on the MFM website, with a link to your business.

Facebook Post:

We’ll feature your business in a Facebook post on our Facebook page, which as of April 2016 has 2,500 enthusiastic followers, growing by 15+ likes each week.

Newsletter Sidebar Mention:

We publish an email newsletter (weekly from May–October, and monthly over winter) which has a readership of over 1,400 (and growing!) and an open rate of nearly 30%. We’ll put in a special one-time sidebar story of you in our weekly newsletter.

Website Banner:

Be a part of our brand! We will work with you to create an attractive banner to be featured on our website.

Newsletter Story:

We will feature you in our email newsletter by sharing your story with the community. This is your chance to shine, front and center.

Table at Market:

Join the market! You will be given an opportunity to table at the market on a Sunday of your choosing (date subject to Market Manager approval). You will be able to meet market-goers (average shopper attendance is over 1,400 per market day) and spread your message.

Market Sponsor for a Day:

This is a customizable option that we are more than happy to work with you to develop. If you can dream it up and fit it into our market day, we want to hear your ideas. Use your imagination!

Market Banner for the Season:

We’ll create and print a sponsor banner for your business and place it in a highly visible spot at the market, where it can be viewed all season long by foot, bike, and car traffic along Stark Street. Annual market attendance is over 32,000 people per season, and up to an 10,000+ cars drive by the market daily during daylight hours in spring and summer.

Limits:

Due to the nature of our mission, not all community partnerships can be considered for sponsorships. We ask that all sponsors honor our Mission and Guiding Principles, and work within our established guidelines of tabling. All sponsorships are subject to board approval.
