Promoting at Farmers Markets
If you sell at farmer's markets, Harvie Farm Stand can be a perfect way for you to drive pre-sales at the market. It also serves the needs of people who like to frequent the market as their schedule permits but aren’t able to get there at the start when supply is fully stocked. To start collecting farm stand members at the farmer’s market, just create the market as a pickup location in Harvie admin and start collecting contacts. Again, you need their name, email and phone to create their new profile. If able, you can also keep a laptop/iPad there for quick signups.
