Be a Sponsor

Real food within reach. We are lucky to have in our downtown two complementary markets – the outdoor seasonal Lancaster Farmers Market and the indoor year-round Keller Market House – that provide our community with valuable venues for real food and real relationships.

Growing for the community. 2022 was a big year for us. At the market house, we made significant improvements inside (new technology!) and out (new paint!). At the farmers market, we increased our vendor roster by 50% and were excited once again to host a number of community partners and fun events. Between the two markets, our nutrition incentive programs really took off, with a combined amount of more than $25,000 in SNAP benefits and Produce Perks doing double duty, both feeding local families and going directly to support local food producers.

Our most significant news of 2022 was the award of a Healthy Food Financing Initiative Grant through the USDA for over $195,000 to further invest in our building and our community! We are meeting with contractors now and about to embark on year-long renovations that will allow us to expand our grocery operations to better meet customer and producer needs.

Be part of our mission. Our markets have always been a collective effort, and we are grateful for the continued support of our members, donors and sponsors, like YOU, who make our projects and organization possible. Your sponsorship supports over 100 small Ohio businesses at our indoor and outdoor markets!

Won’t you help us continue to grow and support a healthier place to live? Become a market sponsor for 2023. In turn you’ll reach our network of engaged and community-minded customers. You can find details and benefits of sponsorship below and in the 2023 Sponsorship Guide.
