Thank you to all our market patrons and East TN markets who participated in National Farmers Market Week 2016! Find our winning photos here and check back for updates on National Farmers Market week 2017.
National Farmers’ Market Week is August 7-13, 2016. In celebration, farmers’ markets across East Tennessee are hosting demonstrations, social media competitions, drawings, and more. Check our our Event Calendar for events near you!
Nourish Knoxville is sponsoring an Instagram competition with Farmers Market Coalition’s “I heart farmers’ markets” temporary tattoos, along with the National competition! Customers or vendors can pick up a temporary tattoo at a participating market, place it on someone (or something!) and post a photo on Instagram doing the following:
Use the hashtags #LoveMyETNmarket and #LoveMyMarket
Tag @nourishknoxville in the photo
Tag or name the market they love in the caption
Prizes will be given for the most “liked” posts on our Instagram feed and a judges’ favorite. The most liked photo will also win a prize for the farmers’ market featured. (Nourish Knoxville markets are ineligible for the farmers’ market prize)
Using the hashtag #LoveMyMarket will also enter the photographer and market in the Farmers Market Coalition’s national competition.
Deadline for submission is August 31, 2016.
Everyone is eligible, including market vendors, employees, managers, and volunteers, with the exception of Nourish Knoxville board and staff and their families.
Profiles must be public, as we will not be able to see photos otherwise.
Nourish Knoxville will regram the photos, and the photo with the most likes on the Nourish Knoxville Instagram feed by noon on Friday, September 2 wins. Prizes will be given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd most likes.
The farmers’ market depicted in the photo with the most likes on Nourish Knoxville’s Instagram page by noon on Friday, September 2 will also win a prize.
Prizes can only be won by residents of one of the 28 counties covered in the Knoxville food shed, as defined in the East TN Local Food Guide (nourishknoxville.org/local-food-guide)
