How to Show You’re Our Friend …

Become a Friend of the Norfolk Farmers Market! Wear our yearly button!

We couldn’t manage the market without the help of our Friends, and our Friends of the Norfolk Farmers Market program gives our vendors a chance to show how much they appreciate the behind-the-scenes efforts that keep things running smoothly.

What it takes to get a Friends pin: EITHER at least 6 hours volunteering at the market OR a cash contribution of $15 or more. Donations of both time and money are welcome (and much appreciated).

What you get by being Friendly: Generous discounts and special Friends deals from participating vendors, plus the satisfaction of knowing you’re an essential element in keeping the market going. And this year several local businesses have joined market vendors in offering discounts to our Friends…see this list or check the whiteboard at the market for details.

Cash donors are contributing to all the out-of-pocket expenses necessary to run the market: advertising, live music and the manager, for example. Volunteers contribute by setting up and taking down signs and tents, helping vendors, staffing the information table or directing traffic in the parking lot.

You can sign up, make a donation or get more information at our Market Information tent any Saturday during the market, or contact manager Rusty Warner:

Even if becoming our Friend doesn’t work for you right now, you can still volunteer. And you can stay in the know about what’s new and next at the market by checking out our Latest News.

SPECIAL THANKS to our sponsors, the business and individual Friends, both listed below and anonymous, who are helping support the live music and our other activities:
