We know that shopping at farmers markets is one of the best ways to support local farms, farmers and communities, just by buying delicious and fresh food. That is why we work with hundreds of farmers markets in our America’s Favorite Farmers Markets™ contest to make an impact for local farms and food in America!
The purpose of the America’s Favorite Farmers Markets™ contest is to spread the No Farms No
Food® message and to raise national awareness about local farmers markets, the role they play in
supporting local farms and food, and the importance of local farms and farmland to our
communities. It is a free national contest that will let your customers show support for your market,
help you earn free media coverage, and bring in new shoppers who want to support farmers markets in your community and beyond. We will be promoting farmers markets on the national
level while we continue to work toward ourgoal of protecting productive farmland and spreading
the No Farms No Food® message.
