Laconia Farmers' Market Director Michelle Descoteaux is encouraging customers to sign up for FarmFan, a new app that alerts customers to product availability, weather alerts, and rewards and prizes. To become a FarmFan, visit www.laconiafarmersmarket.com and sign up the free app.
"Using FarmFan helps us to better connect with customers and reward them for repeat business. Customers who join the free FarmFan program will get "What's Fresh" alerts by text message right before the market opens, to let them know what's available at the market, including special offers from vendors. We love our market customers and wanted a better way to keep in touch with them about the wonderful products that our vendors sell. We are excited to reward our frequent shoppers and call them FarmFans," said Descoteaux.
Laconia Farmers' Market is grateful to its sponsors: New Hampshire Food Bank, Wholesome Wave, and SNAP, helping make good, fresh food available locally to everyone.
