The Matthews Community Farmers' Market has always been a special place because of the people who support it. 
For 25 years, the farmers' market has made a huge impact on a small budget. Our wonderful market customers have strongly supported us in good times and through tough circumstances and the market has thrived. While vendor fees and our peach and apple fundraisers cover basic costs, our continued success and ability to improve the market comes with a higher price tag. And, so, we are asking you to help us mark our 25th anniversary by making an investment in the market's future.  Money raised will help us meet mounting operating costs, expand staff hours and allow us to offer a better customer experience through site improvements and more educational activities.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 by August 1.  
 We are seeking donations from individuals as well as sponsorships from small businesses and large corporations. A running list of donors will appear on our Support The Market page each week.
