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!
2016 Meriden Farmers' Market Sponsors
PLATINUM SPONSORS ($1000+)
GOLD SPONSORS ($500+)
SILVER SPONSORS ($250+)
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.
