Positioning Your Microgreens for a Jolly Christmas Sales Season: 3 Tips for Rising Commercial Growers

'Tis the season to be microgreen savvy! As you gear up for the festive season, it's time to deck your trays with sales, not holly. For all you rising commercial microgreen growers, we've got three tips that will help you sleigh your Christmas sales and have your greens flying off the shelves faster than Santa's reindeer.

Festive Flavors: Spice Up Your Selection

While everyone's dreaming of sugarplums, why not offer them a taste of something even better? Spice up your microgreen selection with festive flavors. Think beyond the standard broccoli and radish and introduce seasonal varieties like peppery arugula, colorful amaranth, and nutty sunflower shoots. These unique and visually appealing greens will not only add a pop of color to your market stall but also cater to customers looking to infuse some holiday spirit into their dishes.

Tip: Consider creating special holiday-themed microgreen mixtures with red and green varieties. A "Christmas Crunch" blend with ruby radishes and emerald broccoli will be an irresistible addition to any holiday spread.

Gift-Worthy Packaging: Dress to Impress

'Tis the season of giving, and your microgreens should dress to impress. Upgrade your packaging to reflect the holiday spirit. Incorporate festive colors, ribbons, and even small decorative ornaments into your packaging design. The more gift-worthy your microgreens look, the more likely they are to end up under someone's Christmas tree or as a stocking stuffer.

Tip: Encourage your customers to think of your microgreens as unique gifts by offering holiday-themed gift tags and recipe cards with every purchase. Consider offering gift baskets or sets for those who want to give the gift of health and freshness.

Social Media Blitz: Jingle All the Way to Online Sales

Don't forget to tap into the power of social media. Create engaging and shareable content around your Christmas microgreens. Share recipes, cooking tips, and even behind-the-scenes moments of your microgreen growing process. Encourage your customers to share their microgreen creations and tag your business in their posts. The more buzz you generate on social media, the more likely you are to attract last-minute shoppers and boost your online sales.

Tip: Run holiday-themed contests or giveaways on your social media platforms to increase engagement. Ask customers to share their favorite holiday microgreen recipes or share pictures of their microgreen-inspired holiday dishes.

So there you have it, three tips to help you position your microgreens for high sales over Christmas. Remember, the holiday season is all about joy and indulgence, and your microgreens can be a part of that celebration. Get creative, spread the holiday cheer, and watch your sales grow like mistletoe on a December branch. Merry microgreening (cheezey - I know)!
