Farmers Markets are not self-sustaining ventures. Vendor fees cover only a portion of the costs of staffing, marketing and operating a market. Please consider supporting the Glenwood Sunday Market by attending an event such as Heat It Up!, making an online donation, volunteering your time, or becoming a sponsor. Here are some facts about the impact of our market that may inform your decision to donate:
Economic Impact: The Glenwood Sunday Market’s economic impact represents a conservative figure of over $1,000,000 in increased income to SSA #24 businesses (located on Clark, Morse and Glenwood) based on the 30,000 individual shopping transactions that occurred in 2011. Recent studies of farmers’ markets in the U.S. indicate that 60% of market shoppers visit other businesses in the surrounding area on the day of the market and for every $1.00 spent at the farmer’s market an additional $3.00 is spent at those businesses.
The Market for All program adds to the economic impact of the market in a unique way. In 2011 a total of $7,900.00 in Link purchases were made at the market and the market gave $2,535.00 in direct grants to one hundred Link/SNAP shoppers, tripling the number of shoppers and grants given in 2010.
Community Impact: the Glenwood Sunday Market is led by a council of 15 community members and currently has more than 75 active volunteers.
Shopper Demographics: Fifty-five percent of Glenwood Sunday Market shoppers are Rogers Park residents. Forty-five percent live outside of Rogers Park.
Sponsorships for the 2012 Outdoor Summer Season of the Glenwood Sunday Market are now available. If your company or organization is interested in joining me as a sponsor, please contact Barbara Moore, theGlenwood Sunday Market Council Chairperson, at 312-758-1818 or email@example.com.
