Oneida, WI – June 25, 2015 – Oneida Farmers Market announces the adoption of the FarmFan app to better connect with customers and reward repeat visits. Customers who join the free FarmFan program will get “What’s Fresh” at the Oneida Farmers Market by text message right before the market opens, including special offers from vendors. Each week customers in the FarmFan program visit the market, they are checked in and are available for rewards such as 5 checkins: $5 market dollars, 10 checkins: Market t-shirt, etc.
“We love our market customers and wanted a better way to keep in touch with them about the wonderful products that we sell. We are excited to reward our frequent shoppers and call them FarmFans!”, said Lisa Hubbard, Oneida Farmers Market Board Member.
In addition to weekly specials, customers can rely on the weekly text message to tell them about products that are only at the market for a very limited time, like fresh local strawberries. For last minute information like rain or weather-related cancellations, the Oneida Farmers Market will be in touch through the FarmFan text message to save a trip the market in these cases.
“In our busy modern lives, it can be easy to forget about the market or miss those precious weeks of fresh asparagus even for the most committed farmers market customers,” said Simon Huntley, creator of the FarmFan app, “so we created FarmFan to help bridge gap between farmers and their customers.”
Over 200 farms and farmers markets across the United States and Canada have adopted FarmFan since its release in January 2014.
