Vote for Mercer Island Farmers Market in National Contest

Fans of the Mercer Island Farmers Market markets can give their favorite market some regional and national recognition in a contest sponsored by American Farmland Trust.

The Mercer Island Farmers Market can get some regional and national love, as the American Farmland Trust runs its fourth annual America’s Favorite Farmers Markets contest.

Customers can vote for their favorite farmers market in this contest, which aims to promote the role that farmers markets play in keeping family farmers on the land, according to the contest website. Voting ends Sept. 3.

As part of the contest, a $1,000 Farmers Market Inspiration Award, sponsored by the Farmers Market Coalition, will be presented to a farmer showing the greatest dedication to his/her market, according to the website.

American Farmland Trust advocates for protection of farmland, promotion of sound farming practices and keeping farmers on the land. 

Fans of the Mercer Island market or another market -- say one of these in Bellevue -- need not choose between them: People may vote for more than one market (though they may only vote once for each market), according to the contest website.

Go to www.votemyfarmersmarket.org to vote.
