It’s summertime and that means two things:  1) There are loads of delicious farm fresh produce available at the Salida and Buena Vista farmers markets every week; and 2) American Farmland Trust’s America’s Favorite Farmers Markets™ contest has kicked into gear and we need your votes to win!

Local Food and Local Farms

The process is simple.  To vote for our market, all you have to do is:

1.)    Go to www.farmland.org/vote or click the button on the right!

2.)    Type in Salida or Buena Vista

3.)    Click “Vote”

That’s it. That’s all it takes to bring CCFA’s markets one step closer to being America’s favorite farmers markets!

You can vote for multiple markets, but you can only vote for each market once, so make sure to vote for both Salida and Buena Vista!

According to American Farmland Trust (AFT), the purpose of this contest is to re-connect local consumers to local farms, with the ultimate goal of keeping our nation’s farm and ranch land productive and healthy!  Buying at the farmers market keeps money in the local community and helps farms and ranches remain economically viable. By voting, you’re helping support farms and communities across the nation. As American Farmland Trust says, “No Farms No Food™!”
