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 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.

Become a VFM sponsor! Check out our Sponsorship Package and email Bree Hayden, bree@eatlocal.org, to learn more.
