Instagram is a unique 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 – and potentially 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!

We are currently seeking markets to contribute to FMC’s Instagram account during the Spring/Summer months. It’s the busiest time of year! Why not drive attention to your market and serve as 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!

How can your market participate?

  1. Email Honesta Romberger 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. To even further promote our Guest Instagrammers, FMC will also feature a profile of each selected market on our website!

Are you an Instagram novice? Not to worry. We’ll provide you with guidelines and tips to help make the most of your Guest Instagram experience!
