Turn occasional market shoppers into loyal customers.

Ever wish you could text a reminder to all of your customers? FarmFan does just that, increasing market turnout--and sales--week after week.

Did you know… Most market customers only visit 2-3 times per season?

And there are plenty more well-meaning supporters out there who make it even less often… Those occasional customers represent a huge opportunity for market vendors.

Move More Produce

Spoiling produce doesn’t do anyone any good, but that’s exactly what happens if you can’t move it all on market day.FarmFan makes it easy to let your customers know what you’ll have at the market that day, giving you a chance to pique their interest before they head to brunch instead…

Increase Your Sales

Increasing market traffic is great on its own… but what if that traffic was there specifically to see you? By using FarmFan to communicate with your customers on market day, you increase the number of people at the market who are there to buy from you.

Beat the Seasonal Slump

You know the slow periods around the beginning and end of market season, when customers aren’t sure if the market is open or not? Take the detective work out of the equation--notify your customers directly, and see your sales increase--even during the seasonal slump.

How it works..

Perfectly timed reminders, every time

Just tell FarmFan when your markets or CSA pickups happen, and we'll text you a reminder a few hours before each event.

Reply to that message with your update and FarmFan will send it out to your customer list.

And remember: A picture is worth 1,000 words. Include a photo of today’s offerings for a reminder that will have your fans grabbing their produce bags and heading your way.

Don't just remind your fans.. reward them

FarmFan is not just about text messages--FarmFan helps farmers and market managers build stronger networks of supporters.

FarmFan gives you the option to a loyalty program with our market check-in feature--a rewards punch card for the digital age.

Each week, market customers check in by text message and accumulate points that can be redeemed for rewards.

Getting customers on the list

Signing up your FarmFans is easy.. Fans can sign up any time...

  • By text

  • Through social media

  • On your website


Or on market day...

  • By checking into your loyalty program

  • The old-fashioned way: writing down their information for entry later.

Easy setup

However you choose to have your fans sign up, FarmFan makes it quick and easy to start growing your list.


FarmFan provides all of the market signage, press releases, social media images, and email copy you’ll need to make sure your customers know to sign up!


Why Text Messages?

It’s simple: Text messages get read. In fact, 98% of all text messages are read by their recipients, versus only 25% of emails and as little as 4% for many social media channels. You can send an email or post an update to social media, but the chances of a customer reading it time to make it to the market are slim.

Compare that with a text message.. which most people read almost immediately. FarmFan allows you to reach ALL of your customers with real-time updates--like what you’re bringing to the market--by simply sending a text.

What FarmFan Users Are Saying..

GrowNYC’s 97th Street Greenmarket is a successful neighborhood market with a loyal customer base and a diverse lineup of producers. We utilized FarmFan to be able to reach a population that is not as active on social media, but still wants regular updates about the market. This market is year-round so FarmFan was great in helping us promote the return of specific ingredients and farmers as the season got going. We found the service very useful for reminding customers once per week that the market was open and new products were arriving.

FarmFan was fantastic. We were really surprised at people's reactions to it. People love being a part of something, like it was a special club - 'Yeah, I'm a FarmFan' - they really bought into that. The weekly reminder, from a practical perspective, made a huge difference for folks at our Wednesday afternoon market. They can plan all week to come to the market, and forget or go home a different way, or get caught in a meeting. People would come to us and say that they would have forgotten to come to the market without the reminder."

Customers often reported they had trouble remembering which days we would be on site. The text reminder function of FarmFan is EXACTLY the prompt many customers were looking for.

I text one hour prior to market start each day, capturing the weather, product, and anything else pertinent to that particular market. I find that text set up a good transition time for me as well - going from staging and loading and managing a busy enterprise, to moving to full time marketing for the next 3 hours.
