Chipotle Celebrates National Farmers Market Week

MMC-ChipChipotle has been a sponsor of My Market Club since 2013, and we cannot thank them — along with our other sponsors and members — enough for the funding that allows Georgia Organics to offer new farmers market shoppers great rewards like $5 in market tokens to spend on local food, as well as connect communities to their food.

In addition to financial support, Chipotle has also maintained a presence at Farmers Markets throughout the summer.

“We’ve visited four other markets and done salsa demonstrations,” said Candace Doby, a Marketing Manager for Chipotle. “We actually had chefs out there teaching people how to make fresh tomato salsa.”

Last weekend on Sunday, Aug. 6. Chipotle stepped up yet again at the Westside Farmers Market on Howell Mill Road in honor of National Farmers Market week. In addition to the salsa demonstrations and giving away free samples, Chipotle offered $5 vouches to spend at the market that day to the first 500 folks who stopped by the market.

“Chipotle has been a sponsor for My Market Club for two years but we’ve never participated in Farmers Market week,” said Doby. “This was a really exciting opportunity for us to give people a taste of Chipotle, but also to celebrate the farmers at the market and drive support to them by giving away these vouchers.”

The vouchers were in addition to the $5 market tokens provided by My Market Club.

Thanks again to Chipotle for supporting farmers across the state and continuing to be a leader in ensuring transparency in the food system.

My Market Club is also generously supported by the Georgia Food Bank Association.
