Sponsorship Opportunities

The Natchitoches Farmers' Market is currently seeking sponsors to continue the Natchitoches Farmers' Market Kids Club program.  In the summer of 2015, the Natchitoches Farmers' Market, previously known as the Cane River Green Market, introduced the Kids Club to children and families. The Kids Club provided an incentive for children to eat healthy and support local farmers by providing them $10 in tokens to spend with Natchitoches Farmers' Market vendors each Saturday as well as cool gifts and healthy eating tips. From April to July 2015, approximately 500 individual children checked in at the Natchitoches Farmers' Market Kids Club with many of them making repeat trips to the market with family and friends. 

The Natchitoches Farmers' Market was able to provide this incentive to children and families through a grant from The Rapides Foundation, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation, Central Louisiana Economic Development Alliance (CLEDA), and MarketUmbrella.org. Unfortunately, those grant funds have been depleted.

The Natchitoches Farmers' Market is asking for your assistance to continue this great program.  Click here for more information on sponsorship opportunities and to download a sponsorship form.  We thank you for your time and consideration!

Celebrate Food Day at the Cane River Green Market October 24

The Cane River Green Market will celebrate National Food Day this Saturday, October 24, 2015 with Cane River Green Market vendors, a free Zumba class, live musical entertainment and a special CRGM Kids Club sponsored by CottageMarketplace.com.  The Cane River Green Market will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the downtown riverbank in Natchitoches.

Food Day inspires Americans to change their diets and food policies. This year’s Food Day theme is “Toward a Greener Diet.”  Food Day is an annual event that involves food activists and activities united by a vision of food that is healthy, affordable, and produced with care for the environment, farm animals, and the people who grow, harvest and serve it.

As part of the Food Day festivities, CottageMarketplace.com will sponsor the CRGM Kids Club.  The CRGM Kids Club provides an incentive to children under the age of 12 to eat healthy by providing them tokens to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables.  The first 100 kids to check in at the CRGM Kids Club tent will receive $5 in tokens to spend with Cane River Green Market Vendors.

CottageMarketplace.com was built on the idea that fresh food is better for our health and economy. Local farmers and producers struggle to outpace the sales of commercialized markets and producers. Their goal is to give local people the platform to buy and sell fresh food that is untouched by the processes involved in commercial food production. CottageMarketplace.com believes that you should be able to shake the hand of the person that puts food on your table.
