Become a Sponsor

We have several opportunities to involve your company, business, or organization. We’d love to chat with you to find the perfect partnership! For more information, contact outreach@nourishknoxville.org, or click below to jump to a section.

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
  • Align with a healthy community mindset
  • Must provide logo and content for social media sharing

Sponsors CANNOT:

  • Be a political candidate or imply endorsement of a specific partisan candidate
  • Have a specific religious or political affiliation
  • Incentivize consumer information sharing on-site or during event

Disclaimer: Nourish Knoxville has the right to refuse a sponsor based on the above guidelines. Our farmers’ markets are first and foremost a place for local farmers, craftspeople, and other small businesses to sell their products. We want to always provide our customers with a welcoming space to shop and access fresh food.

NOTE: Booth space at Nourish Knoxville Markets are very limited. Nourish works hard to prioritize farmers and makers at all farmers’ markets. Therefore, our sponsorship packages do not offer booth space in most cases. If interested in being at market, contact outreach@nourishknoxville.org for potential opportunities for market visibility.
