YOUR favorite farmers market

No matter which farmers market you attend, although we hope that you are coming to ours, you come for a reason.

That reason may be to get local fruits, vegetables, eggs, or any variety of meat.

That reason could be to grab breakfast, lunch, dinner, or any meal in-between from a valued vendor.

That reason could be to socialize, hang out with neighbors, or to meet new people.

Whatever that reason is, it is important to support your favorite markets. The American Farmland Trust is holding their annual "America's Favorite Farmers Market" contest and you can help get your favorite farmers markets noticed by voting for them online. When you support your local farmers markets you aren't just standing up for healthy produce and regional farmers, but you are also supporting and saving the agricultural land that produce your favorite fruits, vegetables, and grains and provides food for other animals. So go ahead and vote for the farmer, the market, and your support for the land!
