Participate in Bumper Crop
The Bumper Crop program provides employers with gift certificates to give to their employees as an innovative workplace wellness or employee appreciation incentive.
MFFM has made Bumper Crop easy to use for both markets and employers. Just contact us and we’ll help you get started!
We track employee participation to chart the positive impact Bumper Crop makes on your workplace and the community. And we know it works! In 2021, we found that two thirds of participants reported eating more fruits and vegetables because of the program!
Bumper Crop is a collaboration, and we always welcome new ideas to make it more enriching for your employees and our partner markets.

To take care of your employees. A gift certificate to the farmers’ market is a gesture of appreciation, a potential introduction to healthy food options, a way to connect with community and more!
What we provide
We’ll print custom-branded gift certificates to encourage your employees to shop at over 40 local farmers’ markets (we’ll print them for you!). You only pay for what’s actually spent at markets.
We’ll ask you to distribute Bumper Crop materials about local farmers’ markets, which will be provided by MFFM, to your employees. This includes magnets, rack cards, and e-newsletters!
(Optional) Share 1 or 2 online surveys with your employees to help us improve the program and understand its full impact! This survey data informs our impact reports.
No matter how your company chooses to participate, Bumper Crop means a healthy show of appreciation for your workers, more revenue for Maine’s farmers and small businesses, and the continuation of a long-standing Maine tradition: the healthy, fun, community-driven experience of shopping at a farmers’ market. It’s a win-win-win!
