Sponsor one of this year's 'Benches'
The Village's Benches on the Avenue public art program is the perfect opportunity to market your business or organization to tens of thousands of residents and visitors throughout the summer season!

Sponsorships cost $749 and include a plaque bearing your company name on the bench, as well as promotion in the Benches on the Avenue brochure and the Village’s website and Facebook page. Sponsors take possession of the bench at the end of the season.

This year, the Tinley Park Farmers Market will be refocused on food and plant products and will run from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturdays from June 4 to October 15 in Zabrocki Plaza. If you or someone you know is interested in selling produce and plants at our event, we'd love to hear from you!

The Village also will be supporting the event with a robust promotional campaign that includes video ads, social media posts, stories on the Village website, emails to potential attendees and more.

The Tinley Park Farmers Market is the perfect place to get your product directly into customers’ hands, all in a popular, easily assessible location in Downtown Tinley that’s already a summer destination due to the string of fun events and rows of first-class shops, bars and restaurants. The convenient time of day and weekend accessibility only lends to its popularity!
