Become a VFM Partner
Each year, Vancouver Farmers Markets invites interest from partners to create an intimate and like-minded group of brands that value local food, sustainability, and healthy communities.
Our partner community provides funding that pays for equipment purchases, operational expenses, and new market research and start up. Sponsorship dollars also helps us 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.
We express immense gratitude towards our market partners as they play a crucial role in assisting us with covering expenses for vendors. In doing so, they provide support to small local businesses, many of whom rely on Vancouver Farmers Markets as their primary source of income.
We provide progressive companies and organizations with a distinctive and innovative platform to showcase their dedication to sustainable and healthy communities by contributing to the hosting of lively and inclusive markets.
