Washington, D.C. — “More than 90,000 people from across the country voted for their favorite farmers markets this summer,” says Jane Kirchner, senior director of marketing and communications for American Farmland Trust (AFT). “And in the last three weeks of the promotion, we’ve seen the top 20 markets in each category change positions, sometimes daily.”

American Farmland Trust designed the online contest to promote the economic and social value of farmers markets in communities, and to bring attention to the need for consumers and communities to recognize the necessity of local farm and ranchland to grow fresh, healthy and local food.

“Customers can visit our website and learn the top 20 markets in each of contest’s four market categories,” Kirchner says. The top markets for each category are:

Boutique Markets (15 or fewer vendors): 

North Port Farmers & Craft Market, North Port, Florida

Small Markets (16 to 30 vendors):
