About American Farmland Trust's
American Farmland Trust is the founder of
America’s Favorite Farmer’s Markets™ contest and is the only national
conservation organization dedicated to saving America’s farm and ranch land.
Right now, farms closest to America’s cities—the providers of the delicious local food found at many farmer’s markets—are directly in the path of development.
The purpose of AFT’s America’s Favorite
Farmers Markets™ contest is to raise national awareness about local farmers
markets, the role they play in supporting local farms, and the
importance of protecting American farmland.
In concert with America's Favorite Farmers Markets™ contest, farmers can submit an essay to win the Farmers Market Inspiration Award. The $1,000 grand prize will be awarded to a farmer-producer with an essay illustrating why farmers markets matter to their farm, family, and community. The Award is hosted by the Farmers Market Coalition in partnership with Growing for Market magazine and American Farmland Trust. Runner up prizes will also be awarded.
