Help Support the Market

Local people are the lifeblood of the DFM. We wouldn’t exist without them, and we thank them every opportunity we get!

If you’re looking for a way to fuel DFM’s future, please become a contributor. Your donation, great or small, will help the Davidson Farmers Market continue to bring local food to our community.

  • It’s a great way to be involved & give back.
  • Meet new people.
  • Learn about farming, agriculture and local foods.
  • Try new foods and local favorites.
  • Assist with special events and educational programming.
  • Gain leadership skills and have lots of fun!
Why are we fundraising??
 
The DFM has been around for 10 years now (hooray for fresh produce!) and the storage shed we use has grown quite cramped over the past decade. Our goal is to raise enough money to have some significant upgrades made to our lovely little shed. Right now it is looking close to $20k+ for our dream shed so we have our work cut out for us. If you are interested in donating to the market in addition to or in place of attending the Ten4Ten Dinner event please click on the PayPal link on the right and THANK YOU!
 
Here is a short video featuring our Market Manager, Abby Wyatt, talking about the current state of the shed and some of the improvements we would like to make. The major improvements include, but are definitely not limited to, the following …
 
  • Replace and raise the roof to ensure enough space for our shelf storage and also to protect market supplies from the elements
  • Level out the floor so it is safer for our volunteers and easy to roll carts in and out
  • Create a double door entry way
  • Add a second source of electricity for our vendors and food trucks
  • Build a secure back wall to keep the shed sanitary and secure

 


The market is also seeking donations of the following items:

  • Hand trucks
  • New or gently used tablecloths
  • Financial donations to help with needed maintenance and upgrades to the Market storage shed

To arrange for pick-up of donated items, please email the Market Manager.

The DFM is 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation is tax-deductible for the full amount, less the value of any gifts you received.
