Meet Me at Market!
Introducing FMC’s summer campaign: Meet Me at Market! This year, the Farmers Market Coalition is providing the more than 8,100 markets across the country with tools to help them deepen their connection with the community, reach new audiences, and better communicate the market’s activities and impacts.
FMC’s Meet Me at Market campaign will provide templates, promotional materials and guides for markets interested in deepening their connection with their community. Meet Me at Market is focused on strengthening markets’ connections with different audiences. Tools and Resources are as follows:
- Collaborate with a local chef to feature a farmers market menu for a limited time, and donate some of the proceeds to your market! Use the FMC’s Market Menu template above
- Host a cook-off between your favorite local chefs
- Host a cookbook signing
- Offer special deals or services for chefs who shop at your market
- More examples in FMC’s Chefs blogpost!
