Friends, Donors and Sponsors

In addition to the volunteers who contribute their time and talents to help operate the Market,  individual, business and civic supporters also play a key role in Market viability by making advertising, financial/or in-kind contributions.

We are grateful for their willingness to donate money, extend grants, and/or provide access to their properties and services, helping us bring you the best in fresh food and artisan handcrafted products while growing our local healthy economy.


Friends of the Market

The City of Williamston

Each Sunday of the regular and holiday Market season, the City of Williamston generously provides access to the McCormick Park parking lot and the McCormick Park storage building to stage the Market and store related tables, chairs, canopies and supplies so that the Market can serve the local community.

Local Businesses and Community Members

Throughout the Market season, local businesses display Market posters in storefronts, office and restaurant windows, and public notice spaces, while community members offer to display Market lawn signs on their property. All of these efforts help to remind existing customers and prompt new customers to experience the Market on Sundays from mid-May to Mid-October and the December Holiday Market.
