VIRGINIA’S FARMERS MARKET HASHTAGS ON INSTAGRAM

Do you want to reach farmers and foodies in your area? Use Instagram and Use Hashtags.

Hashtags help Instagram users find posts about topics that interest them, and — for now — it’s a free way to expand your reach!

Tips:

  • Use up to 30 hashtags on each post
  • Mix it up — Don’t use the same hashtags every time!
  • Put the hashtags in the first comment — not in the text of your post
  • Hide the hashtags a bit from your feed by using 5 dots before your list. (looks less spammy)
    • To do this create your hashtag list with the dots in a separate app (Notes, email, text editor etc). Copy and paste them into the comment section right after you publish your post.
  • Experiment — grab ones from our lists below but also explore to find ones that work for your market.
  • Tag us so we can like and share your posts! @virginiafarmersmarkets
