F&E's CSA Farmer Fair
efarmony: date your grocer, marry a farmer.
TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 4:00PM to 8:00PM \ Able Seedhouse Brewery & Taproom, NE MPLS
Online dating sites, like eharmony.com, help people making new romantic connections. With efarmony we are turning this concept on its ear. No, this isn't speed dating for single farmers. Instead, this is F&E's new-fangled, post-modern Community Supported Agriculture Fair!
Not only are we talking up the tried-and-true values of direct purchasing and early-season investments, but we are, also, excited to bring in those farms with that little extra something. efarmony is ideal for meeting and greeting new customers, beefing up your email list, and sharing a beer with those long-time Twin Cities customers.
This market is perfect for those farmers:
providing the seasonal little or big CSA box.
serving up subscriptions to farmstead proteins, plants, cheeses, or other products.
hosting a farmstay or glamping getaway.
offering U-Pick, in-the-field dinners or pizza nights.
Stall fees are discounted at $40, and capped at 20 total vendors. Deadline to register is Friday, March 6.
PROMOTION Each of the partners (Able, F&E & RED Market) will take an active role in promoting markets to their audiences, with dedicated marketing dollars. F&E encourages vendors to promote their participation often and much.
