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 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.
