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!

The Cane River Green Market (CRGM) is excited to announce that Pilgrim’s will be the market sponsor for the CRGM Kids Club on Saturday, July 9, 2016.  The first 100 children (age 12 and younger) to check in at the CRGM Kids Club tent will receive $5 in tokens to spend with Cane River Green Market vendors on fresh fruits and vegetables, value-added products, and handmade crafts.

 “The Kids Club program is a great incentive for children and families to eat healthy while supporting local farmers and producers,” said Samantha Bonnette, Cane River Green Market manager.  “Pilgrim’s is such a large part of our community, and we are truly excited to have them partner with us to provide this great opportunity.”

 For over six decades, Pilgrim’s has produced healthy, high-quality food products that go into some of the world’s finest recipes. Working with approximately over 4,000 family farms throughout the U.S. and Mexico, Pilgrim’s is dedicated to providing these wholesome, high-quality products at a great value.  Pilgrim’s has a long history of supporting the local communities where their consumers and employees live and work and understands that responsibility comes with being a major employer in rural America. Pilgrim’s works hard to contribute to the fabric and well-being of the community.

 The Cane River Green Market is open each Saturday through July 30, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the downtown riverbank in Natchitoches.  July 9th market offerings include a wide assortment of produce, value-added and craft vendors as well as free Zumba classes by Kimmy’s Zumba at 8:30 a.m. and live musical entertainment by Jarrett Bailey starting at 10:00 a.m.  Credit, debit and EBT are all accepted at the market.
