There’s Still Time to Enter the Holland Farmers Market’s National Farmers Market Week Contest!

There’s still time for Holland Farmers Market fans to enter to win $100 in Market Bucks gift certificates as part o the Market’s National Farmers Market Week contest. National Farmers Market Week is organized each August by the Farmers Market Coalition in an effort to bring awareness to the value that farmers markets bring to their communities. The national event recognizes five main benefits that markets offer the communities they serve: preserving farmland, stimulating the local economy, increasing access to nutritious food, supporting healthy communities and promoting sustainability.

All week long, the Holland Farmers Market has been celebrating the “Humans of the Holland Farmers Market” by featuring long-standing vendors on our Facebook and Instagram pages as they share their experiences as farmers and vendors at the Market. Customers are also encouraged to share photographs of themselves at the Market with the hashtag #humansofhfm on Instagram or on the Holland Farmers Market Facebook page. Everyone who shares their photo with the #humansofhfm will be entered to win $100 in Market Bucks gift certificates to spend at the Market! The winner will be announced Monday, August 10 via Instagram and
Facebook.

“Though National Farmers Market is winding down for this year, we still want to take the time to recognize the hard work of our vendors and the difference they are making in our communities by supporting the local economy and making fresh, healthy and local food available to all,” said Holland Farmers Market Marketing Coordinator Kara de Alvare. “And of course, we want to make sure all of our fans to know that there is still time to enter our #humansofhfm contest to win $100 in Market Bucks!”
