This summer American Farmland Trust is supporting farmers markets across the nation with a national farmers market contest. This is part of their campaign to help spread the No Farms No Food® message and promote local farms and food across the country. Farmers market customers across the nation will be able to cast their votes for America’s Favorite Farmers Markets in order to support their community market. This will be a fantastic marketing opportunity for any farmers market participating. Whether you get the most votes or not, you will be able to rally support for your market and, hopefully get some extra press this summer. They want farmers market customers in every state to have the opportunity to vote and we need to get farmers market managers in our area to enroll in the contest.
In this unique three-month campaign, we will ask Americans across the county to show support for their farmers market by voting in our America’s Favorite Farmers Markets contest! The three top markets: one small, one medium, and one large, will win a free No Farms No Food® tote bag giveaway for their market customers. Customers will be able to vote starting June 1st once farmers markets across the country have had the opportunity to enroll in the contest. Customers will enter their zip code, which will pull-up the farmers markets in their area. American Farmland Trust will be helping to promote the contest in your area and will be conducting outreach nationally. They will also be putting together a marketing toolbox to help market managers get the word out about the contest in their community.
Take two simple steps to make sure your farmers market customers will be able to vote for America’s Favorite Farmers Markets this summer.
