Engaging your Customers with Vendor Profiles

Creating opportunities for engagement with your customers and farmers is part of the role of farmers markets. One idea is to profile your producers with a short interview and some photos and publish these with your newsletter and/or your blog.  Below is an example.

The AFM has started a new campaign to introduce our vendors to you — our customers. In a growing, globalized world where people have grown increasingly more removed from where their food comes from we think it is important to highlight those local producers and growers that go to market each week to sell us their products. Each month we will feature two vendors. We hope you get to know them a little better and learn something new. If you have any questions you are dying to ask, send a message to our facebook page.
