Sponsorship Opportunities

The Natchitoches Farmers' Market is currently seeking sponsors to continue the Natchitoches Farmers' Market Kids Club program.  In the summer of 2015, the Natchitoches Farmers' Market, previously known as the Cane River Green Market, introduced the 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 Natchitoches Farmers' 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 Natchitoches Farmers' Market Kids Club with many of them making repeat trips to the market with family and friends. 

The Natchitoches Farmers' 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 Natchitoches Farmers' 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!
