Market Hero x Ithaca Hummus Fundraiser Update

This might be our biggest news ever! Our friends at Ithaca Hummus have pledged to match EVERY SINGLE donation to our Market Hero fundraiser this weekend, Thursday-Sunday, July 9-12, with NO LIMIT! They want us to meet our goal of $20,000 – or even surpass it! If you’ve been on the fence about donating, don’t wait! CLICK HERE to go directly to our PayPal donation page, or HERE to read more about the fundraiser.

Why would a hummus company donate money to us, you might ask? Well, in 2013 Chris Kirby and his wife started their hummus business at the Ithaca Farmers Market and now it’s the FASTEST GROWING BRAND OF HUMMUS IN AMERICA! You can now find his products in stores like Whole Foods, Target, Stop & Shop, Safeway and more. Chris reached out because he wants to give back to the community where it all began, and we are floored by his generosity. 

Our market is known as one of the best in the country and we’ve got loads of established vendors – but every season, we also get brand new businesses, too. When you shop at the market you’re supporting young farmers and small businesses, sometimes in their first year. We take our role as a business incubator seriously, and this incredible donation from Chris will make sure we can keep doing what we do best. 

THANK YOU Chris, and thank you to our loyal customers and fans, we couldn’t do it without you! If you want to donate – click HERE.

Ithaca Hummus produces high quality, all-natural hummus using a unique cold process designed to maintain the integrity of fresh ingredients without the use of preservatives, delivering an unmatched fresh taste and texture to consumers.
