What Are You Doing to Celebrate National FM Week?

      Posted On: June 28, 2010

National Farmers Market Week is August 1st-7th, 2010!  The Farmers Market Coalition has updated its Markets Are Up!  toolkit, including a Press Release Template, Talking Points, and FAQs to help you communicate to the public and spread the word about how your market is benefiting farmers, communities, and consumers.

Last year, FMC asked people to tell us why they love farmers markets.  This year, we want to know how your market is celebrating and communicating the benefits of farmers markets during National Farmers Market Week.

So, how are you celebrating?

Are you hosting a local or state legislator?  An heirloom tomato tasting? A state-wide radio campaign? A creative fundraiser?  Are you engaging community partners?  Are state agencies playing a role? Are you one of the eleven markets on the Toyota Farm to Table Tour? Are you hosting a giveaway, a photo contest, or delicious cooking demonstration?

Please use the ‘reply’ form below to share a brief description of what your market organization is doing  to celebrate and raise awareness of the role farmers markets play in sustainable communities.  Your idea may be an inspiration to another farmers market!
