Be a CFM Sponsor

The Camas Farmers Market is a 501(C)3 organization working to increase access to healthy and local foods in Camas and East Clark County. In addition to promoting small farms and food producers, a large part of the Camas Farmer’s Market mission includes providing healthy living education and outreach to vulnerable populations. We believe that we can foster a healthier and more sustainable Clark County through workshops and tips that show consumers how simple organic and local living can be.

In order to provide the best services possible, the Camas Farmer’s Market counts on community minded organizations to support our market. We have several suggested sponsorship levels and would be happy to work with you and your company on alternative sponsorship options.

Email info@camasfarmersmarket.org with any questions.
