News release issued by the City of Parsons
PARSONS, KS— To reward the loyal local customers of the Parsons Farmers Market and to encourage new customers to join us at the bi-weekly showcase of produce and crafts, starting July 1, the Parsons Farmers Market Vendors group will unveil an opportunity to win a monthly gift basket!
The new ticket program is simple. Every time a customer makes a purchase at the market, regardless of what vendor, the customer will receive a ticket for each item. Customers interested in participating should print their name and phone number on the back of the ticket. Those tickets can then be entered to win a prize package of goods from the market. At the end of each month, from now until October 15, tickets will be available, there will be one winner per month. Winners will be notified by phone after each giveaway.
"This is something that the vendors came up with to both thank their current customers, and welcome new customers to the market," said Kari West, City of Parsons Public Information Officer. "This type of rewards program has worked very well in other communities, and it should be a success in Parsons, too."
The Parsons Farmers Market is open on Tuesday afternoons from 4 to 6 p.m. and Saturday morning from 7 to 10 a.m. They are located south of the Swimming Pool along the Frisco Trail in Parsons.
