Sponsorship Opportunities

we invite local corporations or businesses (customer service structured) to participate with our market by supporting as a community sponsor. 

The Owosso Farmers Market is proud to be a massive part of the positive impact and growth for the city of Owosso and Shiawassee County. We are thankful for our local 

OFM is a locally owned business, producing one of the largest and longest standing farmers market in Mid-Michigan every year. The consistent success has allowed us to establish a quality line up of vendors and a dedicated customer base including thousands that shop at all of our market events.

The necessary resources for producing a successful farmers market season and each individual artisan market include a full year of: planning, marketing, operating, producing, maintaining and administering – which also require significant financial support. In addition to events, we implement SNAP Nutrition Programs which require upfront costs and staff to operate each season. OFM relies solely on stall fees and sponsorship funds to keep OFM staffed and sustainable every season. 

Our mission is focused around providing fresh food accessibility while supporting local growers & makers, and creating an inclusive community space for people of all ages. As we intentionally expand to provide new opportunities and food access for the community, we require additional overhead and staff to keep things running. Our annual sponsors provide the root foundation of support on which we can depend and succeed.

Each Kid Day hosts hundreds of children of all ages. Our goal is to welcome and encourage our youth to learn at our Farmers Market, while creating lasting memories.

Sponsors for any Kids Day event will be provided with one vendor booth space located in front of The Armory, next to the Kids Day setup, plus signage and social media promotion during the market season.
