Eleventh Annual Farmers Market Celebration Begins

American Farmland Trust (AFT) has launched its eleventh annual Farmers Market Celebration, 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. Marketgoers and farmers are invited to endorse their favorite markets in several different categories. After the celebration ends on September 23, 2019, AFT will present awards to the top markets in each region of the country and recognize a national “People’s Choice” winner. Marketgoers can use #OnMyFork on social media to share experiences from their local market and bolster its chances of winning “People’s Choice.”
