Help Your Local Farmers Market to become America’s Favorite Farmers Market!
It’s summertime and that means two things:
1. There are loads of delicious farm fresh produce available at farmers market every week
2. American Farmland Trust’s America’s Favorite Farmers Markets™ contest has kicked into gear and your local market needs your votes to win!
It's simple, really...all you have to do to vote is:
1. Go HERE
2. Type in the Name of your favorite Farmers Market
3. Click “Vote”
Yup, that’s it. That’s all it takes to show support for your local farmers and vendors and bring your favorite Farmers Market one step closer to being America’s favorite farmers market!
American Farmland Trust has introduced leader boards where you can keep track of the Top 5 markets receiving votes in your state.
If you'd like to support multiple Farmers Markets in your state, simply search by state and you can vote for all of your favorites - just remember, you only have one vote to cast per market!
American Farmland Trust (AFT) , the purpose of this contest is to re-connect local consumers to local farms, with the ultimate goal of keeping our nation’s farm and ranch land productive and healthy! Buying at the farmers market keeps money in the local community and helps farms and ranches remain economically viable. By voting, you’re helping support farms and communities across the nation. As American Farmland Trust says, “No Farms No Food™!”
So, head on over to VOTE and don't forget to spread the word (you have until August 31)!
I'm submitting this post to Simple Lives Thursday hosted by my friend Diana over at A Little Bit of Spain in Iowa...I think that supporting our local farmer's and farmer's markets are as important as growing our own food...I realize sometimes we can't find everything we love/crave/desire locally- but we should embrace the things we CAN...and for the same reason, I'm sending it over to Food Renegade for Fight Back Friday!
