Moscow Farmers Market – American Farmland Trust's Farmers Market Celebration
June 26, 2018 (Moscow, Idaho) -- The Moscow Farmers Market is in the running to receive national recognition from American Farmland Trust, a national nonprofit dedicated to saving farmland for the next generation. Market shoppers are encouraged to endorse the Moscow Farmers Market by visiting http://markets.farmland.org/market/moscow-farmers-market/. The Moscow Farmers Market is located downtown on Main Street and in Friendship Square. It is held every Saturday, May through October, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
What you put on your fork matters. That’s the message behind American Farmland Trust’s annual Farmers Market Celebration. The Celebration calls on shoppers to help identify the best of America’s farmers markets. The summer-long event ends September 21, 2018 at midnight EST.
The Celebration encourages market patrons, farmers, and community supporters to endorse their favorite farmers market in four special areas: Focus on Farmers, Healthy Food for All, Pillar of the Community, and Champion for the Environment.
At the end of the Celebration, American Farmland Trust will present awards to the most endorsed markets in the four special areas, the “People’s Choice” award (presented to markets who rally the most supporters), and the top three most recommended farmers markets in every state. Markets that place in any of the above categories will receive a special online logo honoring their achievement, No Farms No Food® gear, and recognition on the Celebration’s national website.
