Accepting Donations Online

We are excited to announce that we can now accept donations and sponsorships online via Paypal on our website.

Each season, our sponsors have been committed to supporting the activities and programs of the St. Johns Farmers Market.  This has helped us leverage hundreds of volunteer hours, achieve over $10,000 in average weekly sales for our vendors, and contribute to over $706,000 in estimated local economic impact in the St. Johns community. We encourage you to consider becoming a sponsor. Please click here for more information.

Individual donations are also appreciated! If you have enjoyed the market, now in its sixth season, please consider supporting us in bringing you good food, music, children’s activities and programs to benefit the community.
