American Farmland Trust Announces Winners of the Farmers Market Celebration
The summer-long 11th annual Farmers Market Celebration presented by American Farmland Trust has concluded with Troy Waterfront Farmers Market in Troy, New York, being selected as the winner of the 2019 People’s Choice award. The event promotes the importance of local food and the farmers behind it, as the markets that received the most endorsements from their communities and shared stories of their impact on their local food system are recognized. The celebration honored the top-voted markets in five U.S. regions. The celebration is a national effort to promote the importance of local food and the role that agriculture plays in our communities while also raising awareness about the challenges facing America’s farmland and farmers.
