Fundraising for your Market

Many markets are not sustainable on vendor fees alone, and need to seek support from the community and grant opportunities to fund their operations. Seeking outside funding is a perfect opportunity to showcase your market through the data you’ve collected (see this chapter) or find additional funding sources to help you get a jump start on data collection, improvements to your market space, sanitation supplies, and more.
