National Farmers Market Week

National Farmers Market Week: August 6-12, 2017:

National Farmers Market Week 2017 is August 6-12! In celebration, Nourish Knoxville is highlighting farmers’ markets across East Tennessee on social media, lighting the Henley Street Bridge in downtown Knoxville in green and blue, and kicking things off at Market Square on August 5! Here’s some ways for you to celebrate your market:

Attend the kick-off at the Market Square Farmers’ Market, 9am-2pm, August 5

Visit the Veggie Valet booth (located on Wall Avenue near the Market Square stage) between 9am-2pm to pick up giveaways, including: cooler bags, recipe cards, measuring spoons, and temporary tattoos! You’ll also have the opportunity to enter a raffle for a chance to win MSFM swag and gift certificate!

Help your market win the Farmers Market Coalition’s Instagram Competition

Stop by the Market Square Farmers’ Market for a temporary “I heart Farmers Market” tattoo, or order online! Just take a photo featuring the tattoo and post the photo to Instagram with the hashtag #LoveMyMarket by August 31. Check out the Farmers Market Coalition for details.

Enter the Market Square Farmers’ Market’s #myMSFMhaul Instagram Competition

Just take a photo of your haul from the Market Square Farmers’ Market, post on Instagram using the hashtag #myMSFMhaul, and tag @marketsquarefarmersmarket by August 12!
Nourish Knoxville staff will pick our top two favorite photos to win some awesome MSFM prizes, based on the following:

  • Use of #myMSFMhaul hashtag and tagging @marketsquarefarmersmarket
