Since its inception in 2012, GOFM has operated a vibrant and diverse farmers market which contributes to the sustainability of local farms and businesses, encourages diversity, invests within our local economy and works to bring all folks together in the name of community and food.
Until 2015, these efforts were supported entirely by the funds collected from vendor booth fees and the occasional t-shirt sale. As we continue to grow, the need for more funding has grown with us.
We now welcome donations from the public in order to develop more community-enriching programs and remain a sustainable, high-quality market.
If you'd like to make a tax-free donation to Galveston's Own Farmers Market, follow the buttons below. Receipts are happily available upon request.
Your contribution can be directed in 2 ways:
1. The GOFM fund-- your contribution is used to pay for marketing materials, permits and insurance, tables, chairs, t-shirts and all manner of operating costs
2. The FreshBucks fund--your contribution is dispersed among SNAP customers, increasing their budget for purchasing fruits and veggies at GOFM. Learn more about FreshBucks & SNAP here.
