Meriden is very fortunate to have some generous sponsors of the Market. Sponsors realize the tremendous value of encouraging people to eat the freshest food in town, thus helping everyone to either become or stay healthy.
They also realize that the Market builds community and helps to create the town square/meeting place common to New England Towns. The Market is a key piece of the downtown rejuvenation.
Our sponsors realize that it takes money to build and maintain a robust market. Funds for advertising, entertainment and general operating expenses are needed and our sponsors have responded!
We applaud our current sponsors and ask you to join them. Donations (payable to Meriden Farmers' Market) may be sent to:

2014 Meriden Farmers' Market Sponsors
PLATINUM SPONSORS ($1000+)
Platinum sponsors will have their name or logo appear on the main sign into the Farmers’ Market area and on the banner at the market master booth. They may also have a booth any week of their choosing; the booth will identify them as a platinum sponsor.
Gold sponsors will have their name or logo appear on the banner at the market master booth.
Entertainment Sponsor ($1600)
We have found that having music at the market makes it more of a Saturday “destination”, where shoppers linger and meet old friends. Sponsorship helps to provide a complete season of entertainment. . A seasonal entertainment sponsor will be recognized in market literature as well as with appropriate signage in the entertainment area.
Community Service Day Sponsor ($900)
Examples include a Military Veterans Appreciation Day, various ethnic days, and a community service day where civic groups could recruit new members. Theme day ads will identify the event and the sponsor.
Market Umbrella Sponsor ($750)
We plan to provide tables for patrons to enjoy their breakfast and to listen to the music. Having “market umbrellas” will provide some shade and add to the festive spirit of the market. We plan to purchase colorful umbrellas with the name of the sponsor printed on them for the season, as well as using the CTGROWN logo.
