#MoretoMarket Instagram Contest Winners!

      Posted On: September 4, 2015

We at FMC want to extend an enormous THANK YOU to all the markets, farmers, shoppers and fans for participating in our #MoretoMarket Instagram Contest! With over 1,000 submissions, your efforts highlighted the love of farmers markets on a global media platform – and hopefully inspired a wave of curious followers to get out and see what the market hype is all about!

From tattooed people to tattooed produce, and even tattooed puppies, the deliberation process was as difficult as you could image. However, we somehow managed to narrow it down to these three fantastic photos. Please join us in congratulating the following markets!

3rd Place – Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco, CA

You say tomato, and I say YUM! It’s always great to see kids enjoy farm fresh veggies (and we’re sure parents couldn’t agree more!) As our 3rd place winner, Ferry Plaza will receive an awning from Canopies By Fred.

National Farmers Market Week Early Bird Prize – LaCienega Farmers Market in Los Angeles, CA

We loved how this photo radiated with joy and snuck in a little National Farmers Market Week promotion! For their cheerful photo, LaCienega Farmers Market received 10 cookbooks from the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture.

Congratulations to all of the winners, and thank you so much to everyone that participated. We hope that you had as much fun with the tattoos as we did (Psst…they’re still available)!
