ioby fundraiser: Bloomfield Saturday Market During COVID-19

Help Bloomfield Saturday Market during COVID-19 provide universal, safe access to healthy, locally-grown food while supporting the livelihoods of local farmers and food entrepreneurs.
Everything farmers markets have come to be known and loved for – a place to see friends and neighbors, stumbling on delicious new food, creating community in a setting that is accessible to everyone – is gone due to COVID19. 😷 Bloomfield Saturday Market needs to completely reinvent and adapt our summer outdoor market to provide all safety measures possible for our vendors, shoppers, and staff. ❤️

How can you help?

$5 – give what you can!

$20 – Helps pay for 1 license for an online ordering system to support market vendors who don’t currently have a way to sell online.

$50 – Helps us be able to buy market supplies – cleaning supplies, gloves, masks, signage for instructions while at the market, cones, chalk, soap, buckets, so much more!

$100 – Our staff, essential workers, will receive hazard pay while on-site. They’ve been (and will continue to) work more hours to adapt our market to comply with public health best practices and serve our community. Last, we need to invest in more help and heavy volunteer training to support additional help with preorder and pick ups.

These are just suggestions, if you would like to give less or more than the suggested donations above – please do!

If money is an issue for you right now but are still interested in helping, please email [email protected] to find out more information.
