The Sitka Local Foods Network is starting a sponsorship program for the Sitka Farmers Market, and Sitka businesses and individuals are welcome to join. The goal of the sponsorship program is to make the Sitka Farmers Market more sustainable.
“The Sitka Farmers Market is entering a new era of growth through selective partnerships and sponsorships,” Sitka Local Foods Network vice-president Matthew Jackson said. “Sponsors of the Sitka Farmers Market are working with an organization and a market that values local, fun, premium quality goods and experiences.”
This year there are seven Sitka Farmers Markets from July through September. The markets take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, July 2, July 16, July 30, Aug. 13, Aug. 20, Sept. 3, and Sept. 10, at the Alaska Native Brotherhood Founders Hall (235 Katlian St.).
There are four levels of sponsorship available, and each has its own set of perks.
- Grower ($2,500-plus) — We’ll hang your banner at ANB Hall, include your logo and company name prominently in our merchandise and advertisements, and thank you on our social media and web pages. If appropriate for the Sitka Farmers Market, you may set up a free promotional booth.
