Guest Instagram for FMC: 2017 Call!

      Posted On: November 1, 2016


It’s that time again! We’re currently seeking markets to take over FMC’s Instagram account throughout 2017. It’s one of the ways we put a little attention on the good things happening at markets across the country. So why not help us spotlight your market and apply to be our next Guest Instagrammer? From the large and metropolitan to the small and rural, we’ll select farmers markets from all corners of the country to inform and inspire our followers – and promote itself on a national level.

For those of you new to social media, Instagram is a social media platform that uses visual content to connect your story with a broad and diverse audience. As your follower base grows, so does your ability to promote your market to more and more people – with the potential to extend the reach of your message across the globe. In other words, pictures are powerful! If your market doesn’t have an Instagram account, jump on the bandwagon and set one up today.

How can your market participate and apply?

  1. Email Allie Vrtachnik at to specify your interest or for more information. Please put “Guest Instagram – [your market’s name]” in the subject line.
  2. Commit to two weeks as an FMC Guest Instagrammer.
  3. Post beautiful, creative and informative photos depicting what makes your market special. These can be photos of vendors, staff, programs, events, or even what goes on behind the scenes, such as set-up, tear-down and planning. It takes hard work to make a market tick – show us what makes the gears of your market turn!
  4. Participate in a short interview questionnaire about your market and possible follow-up questions closer to your Guest Instagram time slot. The questionnaire and follow-up questions will be used to further promote our Guest Instagrammers via an FMC featured profile of each selected market on our website.

Are you an Instagram novice? Don’t let that stop you from applying. We’ll provide you with guidelines and tips to help make the most of your Guest Instagram experience.
