sponsor & exhibit
Looking for an exciting way to connect with inner city Calgarians in a meaningful way?
The Farmers & Makers Market attracts over 20,000 shoppers annually (both residents and visitors) who care about local food, creative and community-connected lifestyles, inner-city living, sustainable choices and supporting the local economy.
Consistently ranked in the top thee farmers markets in Calgary, the Farmers & Makers Market offers our sponsors the opportunity for association with a well respected and much-loved non-profit organization closely connected to the communities we serve.
Through the F&MM's special programming, signage and robust digital media presence, we connect with thousands of shoppers every week… and you can, too!
Help us support our mission, and join us in "Feeding Communities and Culture". The F&MM's staff and board of directors are dedicated to providing a viable and accessible venue to kickstart and support small local farms, food and beverage artisans and cottage craft industry; and a vibrant weekly destination where community members gather to shop, support, learn and engage directly with local growers, makers and creative opportunities. Vendors’ fees cover the basic cost of operating the markets, but in order to keep vendors’ fees as low as possible and still fund meaningful at-market accessible programming and special events, the F&MM relies on sponsors to support its goals.
By becoming a sponsor of the Farmers & Makers Market, your organization shows a shared commitment to growing a community that is socially and creatively connected, and also economically and environmentally sustainable.
Need to gather leads for a program? Want to host an interactive customer promotion? Launching a new product? Become a Farmers & Makers Market exhibitor!
At the Farmers & Makers Market, guest exhibitors have the opportunity to connect with thousands of attendees, with as many as 2,500 on a peak summer day.
We seek special exhibitors (single day or limited engagement) that complement our vendor mix, enhance the overall shopper experience, and align with our market values. In exchange, we offer an excellent opportunity for face-to-face engagement, awareness campaigns and promotions for organizations, and product sampling and lead generation for brands and businesses seeking to connect with our audience.
