Farmers Market introduces loyalty card

Laura Gnuschke is the July winner of the Farmers Market Card drawing! By shopping at the Charles R. Hegwood Biloxi Farmers Market and completing a loyalty card, the Farmers Market regular was able to enter the monthly drawing and become the winner of a prize basket.

All shoppers at the Farmers Market also now have the chance to win a monthly prize.

Visitors to the market can pick up a Farmers Market card from any market vendor after making a purchase. Then, once the card is full, turn it for a chance to win in monthly drawings.

“Each time a purchase is made, the shopper will receive initials and the booth number in each box on the card from the vendor,” Parks and Recreation Director Cheryl Bell said. “Once 10 purchases and ‘punches’ have been made, the shopper has completed the card.”

Shoppers then turn the completed card in at vendor booth 39 to enter the drawing.

Drawings are conducted once a month at the market for a basket filled with fresh items donated by vendors at the farmers market.

“The card program has been in effect now for about two months,” city reservationist Tina Cowart said, “and the program has already proven to be very successful.”

The Charles R. Hegwood Biloxi Farmers Market is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.
