Well, you came to the right place!  We offer several different levels of sponsorship to meet your philanthropic and business needs.  If you have any questions on the benefits of a particular level, please reach out to us via email.

There isn't a limitation on donation or sponsorship and we will happily work with any individuals or businesses that would like to partner with the Market. 

2023 Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market Sponsorship Benefits
Saturdays from June through September, the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market provides a gathering place for the community. Bringing local fresh produce, flowers and food, it’s the largest on-going event on the city waterfront.
Over the course of the season, more than 50,000 people will visit the Marina to attend the Market and related events. It is the perfect place for neighborhood businesses, residents and visitors to connect with this great community resource.
As a non-profit your support is essential. Local business and individuals underwrite 35% of the Markets operating budget. We could not do it without you.
We market via social media, Twitter, Instagram, DMFM website, Facebook, Waterland Blog, Destination Des Moines, Southside Chamber, Southside Regional Tourism. We create posters and postcards and distribute throughout the South Sound Area, along with print ads in Des Moines City Currents, which is mailed to all city residents.
We are members of Southside Regional Tourism Authority, Seattle Southside Chamber, Destination Des Moines, Washington State Farmers Market Association and Tilth Alliance.
