Become a Sponsor

The Learning Council and The Arbol Farmers Market Planning Committee are asking for your sponsorship for the 2022 weekly Arbol Farmers Market in Paonia Town Park. With your help, we can vitalize the farmers market and ensure its success for years to come. Your support will help us create a thriving and abundant market where our community has access to fresh, local, organic produce, prepared meals, and value added food items!

The Arbol Farmers Market debuted in 2020 at Arbol Farm on Lamborn Mesa in Paonia. The market was initiated by The Learning Council and Viva la Vida, two local non-profit organizations, as a way to increase food security and support local farmers in the early days of the pandemic. Customers were able to shop safely, listen to live music, use their SNAP benefits, and receive a community meal prepared by The Learning Council. The 2020 market was a huge success and we quickly outgrew the space.

In 2021 we moved to Paonia Town Park under the shade of the trees and hosted a prosperous community market with local produce, flowers, fruit, herbs, crafts, informational booths, live music, organic community meals from The Learning Council, wood fired pizza from the pizza oven, and more!

This year we plan to continue to grow as a market and host our wonderful vendors and market attendees in Paonia Town Park every Tuesday evening from May 17th to October 4th. By supporting this blossoming market, you are helping to increase local food security, bring more folks into the area to support our region’s economy, and create a vibrant, public, weekly social event in Paonia Town Park.
