The Missoula Farmers' Market has always done a lot with a little. Our budget is currently under $50,000. And we're able to provide a venue for local farmers and entrepreneurs to make a living and grow their businesses. We distribute tens of thousands of dollars in SNAP/Double SNAP, WIC, and Senior Coupons each season so everyone can benefit from healthy, local food. We provide a welcoming community space complete with musical accompaniment on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings. We are a venue for health education and a forum for local nonprofits and government agencies to connect with the public.
And there's so much more we can accomplish with your support!
We've always funded our operations from the fees paid by vendors. With rising costs and expanded goals, we are looking to diversify our revenue streams so we can keep vendor fees as reasonable as possible.
Our goal is to raise $2500 during Missoula Gives from at least 15 donors. If we reach 15 donors by 7pm this evening, we are eligible to receive funds from the Stretch Pool, so every gift of any size is important! Thank you in advance for your generosity.
