Last week, in case you missed it, was National Farmers Markets Week. And the USDA just announced that there are nearly 700 more farmers markets this year than last year. The American Farmland Trust wants to keep that momentum going by sponsoring a popularity contest: America's Favorite Farmers Markets Contest. The purpose, as the AFT says, is "to raise national awareness about local farmers markets, the role they play in supporting local farms, and the importance of protecting American farmland." So if you dig your local market, vote for it before September 3.
