Fundraiser to benefit the Sarasota Farmers Market
Many people do not realize that the Sarasota Farmers Market is a non-profit, 501c3 organization supported by not only our vendors but also our community. We have many unseen expenses to maintain the quality of the Market which we have built over the years. Some of them include police and crossing guards to ensure safety ($18,000 annually), portable restroom facilities ($10,000 annually), and also to help with some of our programs that include donated space to local non-profit organizations, family-friendly programming, and our live music.
Please support the Sarasota Farmers Market by coming out to our 3rd Annual “Taste of the Market – Jamaica Me Sunday” Fundraiser on Sunday, March 29th from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. We’ll have reggae music from Jah Movement, delicious food from your favorite Market vendors (including a 50-foot buffet!), a Cash Bar (full bar, including Jamaican tropical drinks and beer), a Limbo Dance-Off, and more fun throughout the night!
Your support helps us to keep the Sarasota Farmers Market one of the largest and healthiest in the country with an annual attendance of more than 500,000, generating in the vicinity of $56 million each year for the downtown core. We are proud to bring locally sourced goods, produce, and healthy living right to the heart of our community every Saturday morning, rain or shine, 52 weeks a year.
This event sold out last year, so be sure to purchase your tickets early. Each ticket purchased comes with one complimentary drink of choice.
