Your Contribution Matters!
Welcome to the Gallatin Valley Farmers’ Market (GVFM), and thank you for your consideration in becoming a sponsor. Since 1971, the GVFM has been dedicated to bringing locally grown, hand made and home baked products to the greater Bozeman community. We do that through operating 12 market events throughout the summer and one large holiday event in November.
As the market continues to grow, we know it is impossible to continue our mission without your help. Right now, our greatest need is to secure financial assistance that will support our continued efforts to provide the entire community with locally grown produce and handmade products. This is where you come in! We invite you to make a financial contribution in support of the GVFM to help further our goal of supporting self-owned business.
The GVFM is a program of nonprofit Career Transitions and is supported financially by vendor (booth) fees, sponsorships, and donations. Vendors retain all their sales income; the market does not receive a percentage of vendor sales. The market operates on a small annual budget which supports an array of operating expenses including insurance, facility rentals, promotions, marketing, a market manager, a market assistant, and a market support position.
It goes without saying that becoming a sponsor of the GVFM showcases your dedication to regionally sourced food and locally made products. By becoming a sponsor, you are not only supporting the GVFM as an entity, but hundreds of individuals and families who buy and sell through our market. Through your sponsorship, we are able to keep costs as low as possible for our vendors, in turn keeping prices lower for customers. If you wish to join the GVFM community by becoming a sponsor, your generous contribution will go towards the operation expenses for our twelve markets of the 2023 season.
