To farm, food, and market supporters:
Like many families and business, the Manzanita Farmers Market has been hard hit by economic conditions during the pandemic. The manager and board of directors have been working overtime to reorganize, restructure, and redesign the market to continue our mission of supporting farmers, food, and community while accommodating the new safety requirements for COVID. Despite this extra effort, the financial impact on the market has been dire: for the first time in over a decade of operation, it is projected that our finances will be entirely depleted before the end of the year.
After years of service, we now request the support of our loving community. If you have enjoyed the market and would like to see it continue, please consider making a donation to help us through this challenging time. Your financial support, combined with other budgetary strategies, will make a difference in whether or not the Farmers Market can return next year to provide the Manzanita, Nehalem, and Wheeler communities with the fresh produce, music, and community experiences that have been a part of summertime for so many years.
Thank you for you for being a part of the Manzanita Farmers Market, and stay safe and healthy.
-The board of directors, Manzanita Farmers Market
