America's Farmers Markets Need Your Vote!
The American Farmland Trust is holding the inaugural America's Favorite Farmers Markets contest, from now until August 8, in order to raise awareness about the importance of supporting local farms and farmers. The winner in each category (small, medium, and large) gets 500 "No Farms No Food" tote bags to distribute to shoppers, but the main thing is to get the word out about buying local, fresh produce.
Local markets such as Irvine and Costa Mesa are on the roster of contenders, but others including Brea and Fullerton are currently missing... So if your favorite one isn't on the list and you care about the cause, you're asked to print off the flyer and take it to the market manager and encourage them to sign up.
