Bethesda Leading in Favorite Farmers’ Market

Share

According to the latest figures on the Farmland Trust website, Bethesda Central Farm Market is leading Chestertown Farmers’  Market by a vote of  493 to 383.

American Farmland Trust holds the annual America’s Favorite Farmers Markets™ contest to raise national awareness about the importance of buying fresh food from local farms and saving the farmland where it’s grown. Market shoppers will vote to support their favorite farmers market starting June 1 at 12:00 PM until midnight on August 31, 2011. Participants can vote for as many participating farmers markets as they choose, but can only vote for each market once.

At the end of the contest, one small, medium, large, and boutique, farmers market will win the title of “America’s Favorite Farmers Market” for 2011. The reward for the winning market in each category include  a shipment of No Farms No Food® totebags, a feature article on the award winning foodsite Epicurious.com.

Last year Chestertown  was voted #1 Farmers’ Market in the state of Maryland.
