Help your favorite farmer's market — and possibly win a hat

GRN Reports

You may shop there already, but if you don’t, now would be a good time to support your local farmer’s market.

No Farms No Food NFNF-sticker-collageYou might win a hat, and the market could be recognized as one of the top 100 in the US.

The American Farmland Trust’s “I Love My Farmers Market Celebration” will reward shoppers who pledge to spend some of their food dollars at nearby farmer’s markets. Just log in with your pledge at the AFT site.

The program aims to help family farmers, many of whom are struggling to stay afloat financially and face pressure from development that’s swallowing up farmland every day.

So if you enjoy the fruits of summer, express your support for farmers by shopping direct.

You could win a “No Farms, No Food” hat. There will be drawing every week through Sept. 13, 2014 from among those who make pledges.

The Top 100 most mentioned farmers markets also will receive “No Farms, No Food” gear and will be recognized on the AFT website.
