Make it your market!
Where does your financial CONTRIBUTION go?
The Market is fortunate to have a dedicated base of volunteers to keep the Market running. However we still need financial resources to cover our administrative expenses (insurance, professional services, licenses and fees) and special Market day programming (music, children's table and hospitality booths).
You can also support the market by becoming a business sponsor, volunteering, spreading the word, and using your purchasing power.
Become a Business Sponsor
Business sponsorship helps promote your business, targets a diverse audience, shows your support for the community, and demonstrates your brand awareness and values. The Market is a valued community asset and engages a wide audience. In 2013, the MIFM was awarded "Business of the Year" by the Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce. The Market has an average of 2,500 visitors per market day and over 45,000 visitors per season. We offer multiple levels of sponsorship to fit your business needs. Contact Market Manager, Lora Liegel, for more information.
Volunteer and Spread the Word
Use Your Purchasing Power
Help support the market by shopping at vendor and sponsor businesses. Increased sales at these establishments help sustain the MIFM. Also support us by using AmazonSmile. Choose the Mercer Island Farmers Market as your charitable organization of choice. For every eligible purchase, 0.5% of the purchase price will be donated to the growth and cultivation of the market.
