Become a Friend of the Market!

Homegrown talent, local small businesses, free and family-friendly events, all coming together to build a vibrant community. It all happens at the Market, thanks to our Friends like you.


To say thank you for your support, we are introducing our NEW Friends of the Market program. It’s our way to say thanks, providing donors of $50 or more with exclusive gifts, early access and discounts to tickets, and other special NewBo Friends benefits.
