FMO Loyalty Card Program

By | Giveaways & Raffles, Things to Know When Visiting FMO | No Comments


Earlier this year we were excited show our FMO shoppers some love by launching our FMO Loyalty Punch Card Program. These cards can be picked up at our market hub and are the perfect way to make each one of your purchases at market count!

It’s pretty simple!

  • You get a punch for every $5 you spend at market
  • Once you fill up all 20 punches you can turn your card in to receive 10% off of FMO swag as well as be entered to win $50 to spend at market in our monthly drawing.
  • You can turn in as many cards per month as you like, so if you fill yours up be sure to turn it in and grab another one!
  • We also offer Free Punch Wednesday at our Wednesday Markets (Open May to Sep from 9am to 1pm), so be sure to stop by for a FREE punch.
