As a nonprofit organization making local and regional produce and products available, the generosity from businesses and individuals in our community has been essential in the Edenton Farmers Market’s continued success.

With donors’ help, the Market:

  •  Makes local fresh, healthy food accessibility to everyone in the community.
  •  Encourages small business through its local produce, prepared food, and craft vendors.
  • Promotes a family atmosphere.
  • Provides educational activities that promote healthy living, sustainable farming, and participation in arts and crafts.
  • Makes fresh, local foods available to those in need by working with the local housing authority, healthcare providers, and the NC Cooperative Extension’s Master Food Volunteers.
  • Has received grant funding to supplement EBT/SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and educational benefits utilized at the Market.

 

To carry on its programming, for monthly expenses such as (electricity, water, insurance, and mortgage), and for general upkeep and improvements to the building and grounds, we call on the generosity of individuals and businesses who want to see the Market thrive.   Various recognition levels for annual donation have
been established:
