American Farmland Trust (AFT) has launched its tenth annual Farmers Market Celebration, set to run through the summer until September 21, 2018. The Celebration is a national effort to promote the importance of family farmers and farmers markets, while also raising awareness about the loss of America's farmland. AFT encourages market shoppers, family farmers, community activists, and others to endorse their favorite farmers markets in four categories: Focus on Farmers, Healthy Food for All, Pillar of the Community, and Champion for the Environment. At the end of the Celebration, AFT will present awards to the top markets in each of the four categories and will also recognize a "People's Choice" winner and the three most-recommended markets in each state. All summer long, farmers and shoppers are encouraged to use the hashtag #OnMyFork to show off the best of what their market has to offer and to highlight the importance of our food choices in supporting family farmers.
