Market sponsors help us to provide a community space where we all can gather with friends and family to meet the farmers who grow our food, discover the creators with unique artistic talents, and savor new sweet and savory treats. As a non-profit organization, the Port Orchard Farmers Market relies on the support of local businesses as well as individual community members to make the market happen every Saturday from April through October.
Since 1978, the Port Orchard Farmers Market has been providing a place for the Port Orchard community to purchase fresh produce, flowers, prepared foods, and handcrafted items directly from local farmers and artisans. Going to the market is an experience; shop for fresh produce, buy some gifts, have lunch and listen to local musicians. Other local non-profits and community groups can set up booths to let the community know about their services. Kids can participate in our free POP Kids Club and get $2 to spend on fruits and veggies for doing the monthly activity. The market processes EBT cards and matches the first $25 per day to help provide more fresh food for those who need it most. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit farmers market in Kitsap County, we proudly serve our farmers, small business owners, and the community.
In 2022, shoppers spent over $513,000 buying locally from our vendors. An average market day brought nearly 900 shoppers to the market (23,264 visits for the season). Over 200 kids participated in POP Kids Club and $10,007 was provided in EBT matching funds.
This year, we are celebrating our 45th Anniversary Season and we would like you to be a part of it! Your sponsorship will help us promote the market, provide bigger and better events, and expand our programing including bringing back Chef at the Market. In return, we get the pleasure of promoting your business to our customers. If you do not see a sponsorship level that works for you, call or email and we can create a custom package just for you! We look forward to working with you!
