The Cane River Green Market is currently seeking sponsors to continue the CRGM Kids Club program. In the summer of 2015, the Cane River Green Market introduced the CRGM Kids Club to children and families. The Kids Club provided an incentive for children to eat healthy and support local farmers by providing them $10 in tokens to spend with Cane River Green Market vendors each Saturday as well as cool gifts and healthy eating tips. From April to July 2015, approximately 500 individual children checked in at the CRGM Kids Club with many of them making repeat trips to the market with family and friends.
The Cane River Green Market was able to provide this incentive to children and families through a grant from The Rapides Foundation, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation, Central Louisiana Economic Development Alliance (CLEDA), and MarketUmbrella.org. Unfortunately, those grant funds have been depleted.
The Cane River Green Market is asking for your assistance to continue this great program. Click here for more information on sponsorship opportunities and to download a sponsorship form. We thank you for your time and consideration!
About Cane River Green Market
The Cane River Green Market was founded in 1999. The Cane River Green Market’s vision has remained the same - to encourage a sustainable future. At the Cane River Green Market, we are hoping to change the way we think about the relationships between our food supply, the environment and our bodies. The Cane River Green Market is managed by the Natchitoches Main Street Program which falls under the City of Natchitoches Department of Programming and Promotions.
The Cane River Green Market Jury Committee consists of community leaders and market patrons with a vested interest in the market's success. The committee meets each season to review all Green Market applications. The committee assists in site visits, vendor follow ups and recruitment. They also meet as needed to discuss upcoming events and the future of the Green Market. If you are interested in participating on this committee, please contact the Main Street Office.
