We will have a main Facebook event for all the weeks and will provide you with promotional posters, blurbs and do expect that be shared on your business social media pages. -There will be paid posts on social media, as well as radio, posters, and signs. -We may also advertise via "market money" giveaways.

Encourage the customer to spend it all and do not offer change back as we want to keep the money within the market spent with the vendors.
