The Bremerton Community Farmers Market creates partnerships with area businesses that are committed to supporting a green, sustainable and viable local economy. Sponsors of the market enjoy an array of promotional benefits, bringing their business face-to-face with those that care about farm fresh foods, healthy living, and community, and with those that value supporting the local food economy.

New this year, we'll be starting a Frequent Shopper Program where folks can pick up a punch card at the Market Booth (free of charge) and every time they visit the market (no purchase necessary) they get a punch on their card. Once they get 8 punches they will receive $5 to spend at the market. This sponsor's logo will be printed on every punch card and their business name mentioned every time the program is advertised along with all of the general benefits provided to sponsors.
The market hosts local chefs throughout the season that come and prepare recipes with our vendors’ seasonal offerings. The Chef at the Market program happens once each month and is designed to inspire and educate customers with ideas on how local, in-season foods can be added to their cooking. In addition to all the general benefits provided to sponsors, the sponsor will have a banner hanging at the Chef at the Market booth each month, their logo printed on all Chef at the Market program materials, as well as special mention for all program advertising.
