Convention Sponsorship

Become a Convention Sponsor:

Reach the decision-makers in your field! The 11th annual Maine Farmers’ Market Convention will be a bigger and better event than ever: a 2nd-floor takeover of the Augusta Civic Center on the third day of the Maine Agricultural Trades Show. This is your business’ premier opportunity to connect in-person with the state’s farmers, craftspeople and market managers.

Why sponsor?

  • There are about 115 summer farmers’ markets in Maine, and more than 30 winter markets. More than 2000 vendors are members of these markets, and they serve tens of thousands of residentsand visitors each year. 
  • Mainers who shop at farmers’ markets are passionate.  They love their farmers, they love food, they love music, and they love the community atmosphere of the markets. About 30% shop at a farmers’ market weekly, year round. When surveyed, shoppers often speak of the community feeling at their market, and how they love doing business in an environment where people know each other’s names.
  • MFFM regularly reaches more than 9000 followers across its social media platforms. When our markets share messages too, the effect is amplified.

Being a sponsor at the convention means you’ll be building a stronger farmers’ market network while heightening awareness about your company in the process.  A variety of sponsorship options are available—let us help you figure out the best way to get noticed at this once-a-year gathering!

The Maine Farmers’ Market Convention is hosted by the Maine Federation of Farmers’ Markets, which runs statewide programs that help sustain Maine farms, connect market farmers, strengthen farmers’ markets, and widen access to locally-grown food for all.
