Why Sponsor?

  • Build Customer Loyalty and Trust: Sponsoring Nourish Knoxville’s farmers’ markets, programs, and other events demonstrates your company’s commitment to community health and wellness, local food access, sustainability, economic development, and entrepreneurship.
  • A High-Visibility Sponsorship Opportunity: Our markets, programming, and events are well-loved and well-attended by the community and offer a diverse range of the East Tennessee population.
  • Increase Food Access: Your support helps us increase purchasing power for low-income shoppers, families, and at-risk community members.
  • Align Your Business with the Local Movement: Our farmers’ markets, accompanying programs, and events help preserve farmland, stimulate our local economies, support small business owners, promote sustainability, and bring cultural vibrancy to our community.

Sponsor Guidelines

  • Preferably local or East Tennessee businesses

  • Must provide logo and content for social media sharing

Sponsors CANNOT:
