fresh food at a farmers market in Madison

Farmers’ Market Family Pack

For the next month, Sharing Wishes would like to highlight the Farmers’ Market Family Pack fundraising event. Our goal is to raise enough money for 10 Farmers’ Market Family Packs, which are $75 per pack. Each pack includes $15 for 10 metro bus passes and $60 in the form of Dane County Farmers’ Market gift certificates. This will provide transportation for 10 families to get to and from one of the greatest farmers markets in the country. As a family they can spend a Saturday morning together enjoying the sights and sounds of the market, purchase fresh, organic, locally grown produce, as well as other yummy stuff, while supporting local farmers and bakers.

As we raise money for the Famers’ Market Family Fun Packs, you can watch our progress on our Facebook page ( The updates will consist of images of 10 grocery bags to represent each of the Family Packs. When a Family Pack is complete, or when increments of $75 are raised, you will see a fully colored-in grocery bag. This way you can watch our progress and see how your donation will help fill up these grocery bags!

To donate, we will be setting up two donation sites. One will be on the east side of Madison on May 7th from 7:30 AM until 8:30 AM in Lobby A of American Family Insurance, 6000 American Parkway, Madison, WI 53783. The other will be on the west side of Madison on May 8th from 7:30 AM until 4:30 PM at the TeamSoft Office, 1350 Deming Way, Ste. 250, Middleton, WI 53562. We will be accepting donations in the form of checks made out to the Dane County Farmers’ Market (for Family Packs) and Metro Transit (for bus passes).
