Vote For Your Favorite Farmer’s Market

And if you are in Athens, or have visited and love our market as much as we Athenians do, please vote for our market.

The winning market gets a $5,000 prize from Local Harvest to use to promote healthy, local, sustainable agriculture.

That much money would go a long way toward getting the Athens Farmer’s Market a permanent home–right now we meet in a parking lot of a local shopping center, but it would be better to have a place of our own.

Right now The Athens Farmer’s Market is in fifth place–that is pretty good considering the many great markets there are out there across the country.

And if you are not from Athens–vote for your local market!

love your farmers market contest - help your market win $5,000 - vote today!

  1. I would vote for my farmer’s market in Hillcrest, a part of San Diego. They set up at the DMV in the parking lot.

  2. Even though I’m from San Francisco, I’ll vote for Athens. Sounds like you folks can make good use of the money, and $5K wouldn’t go very far here … they’d probably just order a new sign or something.

  3. What a nice thing to do, Fuzzychef! We sure could use it here in SE Ohio.
