Each year, Vancouver Farmers Markets extends invitations to sponsors to create an intimate and like-minded group of brands that value local food, sustainability, and healthy communities.
Our sponsors and community partners provide funding that pays for equipment purchases, operational expenses, and new market research and start up. Sponsorship dollars helps us run food literacy programs for kids, host educational demos and food festivals across the season, and facilitate special programs like the Fresh to Families Project. Your sponsorship will support us as we continue to build successful, vibrant markets for Vancouver, which help keep BC farms in production.
Vancouver Farmers Markets is proud to be a 1% For the Planet Non Profit Organization

Additionally, since 2010, Vancity has supported the Vancouver Farmer Markets by providing project start-up funding to develop infrastructure for our markets and the local food system as a whole.
Whole Foods Markets provide funding for our Fresh to Families Project, a fresh food access program benefitting low income families, newly arrived refugees, and at risk expectant mothers in Vancouver. More info on the project at this link: eatlocal.org/fresh-to-families
