THE OBFM HAS A NEW PLAN TO INCLUDE LOCAL BUSINESSES!
The Olde Beaufort Farmers’ Market supports local businesses and we recognize the impact our Saturday morning markets have on our area. By drawing guests from all over who are attracted to our locally, statewide, and nationally recognized market, we offer an excellent venue for businesses to promote their work and services.
We have, for the last several years, been largely funded by our Friends of the OBFM. This group is composed of individuals and businesses which value the market and wish to invest in its sustainability through a sponsorship donation to our 501(c)(3) organization.
This membership drive is beginning and you can join on our website.
One benefit of becoming a “Friend” at one of the top three donation levels is your business or the charity of your choice is invited to participate in the market up to three times during the season for promotional purposes. Folks who have taken advantage of this benefit have found they reach many new potential customers during each visit.
In response to businesses that would like to participate in the market more than
the 2 or 3 times their sponsorship allows, we have created a new program
which will give these members additional market access.
For a fee of $25 for each visit, a sponsor business may join the market additional times, up to once a month, space permitting. The market will provide a tent and table for the business’ use.
We will also include businesses which are not Friends of the OBFM to join the market at a charge of
$50 for each visit up to once a month, space permitting.
The Olde Beaufort Farmers’ Market values interactions and relationships among members of the community, individuals and businesses, as a means of contributing to the health, wellness, and happiness of our citizens! We believe this new program will benefit everyone involved.
