The voting process is simple. To vote for your favorite market, all you have to do is:

3) Click “Vote”
That’s it. That’s all it takes to bring your market one step closer to being America’s favorite farmers market! If your market is not registered with the contest, please ask them to do so by commenting below.
According to 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 FoodTM!”
So don’t forget to vote for your favorite market at www.farmland.org/vote and spread the word! Big thanks to everyone who has already voted!
