The My Market Club
The My Market Club is a grant-funded program developed in partnership with eight farmers markets across the state of Georgia.
We want to encourage people to support their local farmers by shopping at their local farmers markets regularly. We offer new farmers market shoppers great rewards* like $5 in market tokens to spend on local food, branded tote bags, and more, but we also help connect communities and their food. So far, we’ve helped over 5,000 new Georgia shoppers discover the wonders of their local market! To stay up to date on the latest My Market Club happenings, check out our blog or follow Georgia Organics on Facebook. And take some photos! Post pictures of your market moments on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #MyMarketGA and you’ll be entered to win great prizes!!
HOW IT WORKS, IN TWO STEPS
Step 1: We Welcome You!
On your first visit to the market, swing by the welcome tent and find your My Market Ambassador. They’ll get your signed up for My Market Club and oriented with the program! You’ll get a membership card and you may even give you $5 to spend that day!
Step 2: You Come on Back, Y’all! On your next two visits, bring your My Market Club card! After purchasing delicious local goodies, stop by and see your friendly My Market Club ambassador for another stamp and the next round of rewards. On your third visit you’ll be entered into a raffle to win great local prizes!
The My Market Club is at the following markets around the state. They all accept SNAP/EBT, and some of them will even double it thanks to the excellent Wholesome Wave Georgia. Visit their websites to find out more!
