Becoming a sponsor of the West Broad Farmers Market is a great way for you or your business to show commitment to the health and vitality of the Athens-Clarke County community. Your sponsorship supports:
- Vital access for the West Broad Neighborhood to premium produce grown by local micro-enterprises.
- Providing another location where SNAP/EBT users can shop with dignity. Thanks to our partnership with Wholesome Wave Georgia, SNAP/EBT funds spent at the market are doubled and go farther.
- Our ability to provide a market to small and under-represented farmers. This gives them the ability to sell directly to their community and share their passion with the West Broad Neighborhood and Athens at-large.
- The Young Urban Farmers program, where youth from Clarke County Schools learn technical farming and entrepreneurship skills. The program works in tandem with the West Broad Farmers Market. The youth debut their businesses and become vendors at the Market at the end of their time in the program.
