We Are Reaching Out To You To Invest In The Future Of Your Farmers' Market

The Matthews Community Farmers' Market has always been a special place because of the people who support it. 
For 26 years, the farmers market has made a huge impact on a small budget. Our straight-from-the-farm local harvests have made us a year-round Saturday morning destination for hundreds of customers who want to know where their food comes from, how it is grown and the farmers who grow it. Recognized as one of the best local-only farmers' markets in the Carolinas, the Matthews Community Farmers' Market attracts hundreds of families from all over the Charlotte metro area. Customers are drawn to the fresh locally produced food and hand-made products from more than 50 vendors. They enjoy our friendly down-home atmosphere, free weekly events and fun activities. Over the years, our loyal market customers have strongly supported us in good times and through tough circumstances. Our 25th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign in 2016 was a huge success, thanks to so many generous market friends and sponsors. We used the funds to pay for a new chef demo area, to add a tailgate addition to the market and to take on more staff. 
The market is thriving on such solid support, but we know that our continued success will come at a cost. While vendor fees and fundraisers pay for basic expenses, we seek ongoing individual donations and business sponsorships to help us meet mounting operating costs and to continue to make further improvements to provide a better shopping experience for our customers.  We continue to seek donations from individuals and businesses in 2017. 
The farmers' market is a taxable non-profit, so these donations are not eligible for a charitable tax deduction. Please contact us at matthewsfarmersmarket@gmail.com or at 980-293-2698 with any questions.
