Farmers Market Fundraiser:

This is an opportunity for your 4-H club, or a youth 4-Her who is going on a 4-H trip, to raise funds by selling projects they made, the food they made, the food they grew, or charge for an activity (i.e. face painting for $2) at the Jackson County Farmers Market.

The Parent and Leaders Association has paid for the fee to have a booth at the Farmers Market to get this club fundraiser started!  Each club leader will be emailed information about how they as a club can sign up, participate and raise funds for their club.  The family of each youth who has signed up for a 4-H state, national, or international trip will also be emailed with information on how to sign up so they can raise money to attend their 4-H trip.

Quick Facts about this Fundraiser:

  • Funds raised at the Farmers Market will go directly to the club that was selling that day, or directly to the 4-H youth attending a 4-H trip
  • Each club will be selling something of their choosing – meaning that there will be A LOT of cool things!  Some things they may sell are listed below:
    • Homemade Food Goodies
    • Craft Projects
    • Drawings/Paintings
    • Face Painting
    • Kits for Activities
    • And so much more!
  • The Farmers Market runs from June through October
  • If a club can’t be at the Farmer’s Market the 4-H Program Coordinator or Summer Intern maybe there selling plat books!
