Help Make the Downtown Lee’s Summit Farmers Market one of America’s Favorite Farmers Markets
The countdown is on! The Downtown Lee’s Summit Farmers Market is one of the contestants in the 2011 America’s Favorite Farmers Markets contest hosted each year by American Farmland Trust. Currently, our Farmers Market is ranked number three in the nation and is only 200 votes away from being number one in the medium market category! There are only three weeks left in the contest and we need your votes! Visit www.farmland.org/vote and enter the zip code 64063 to vote for the Downtown Lee’s Summit Farmers Market.
The American Farmland Trust online contest is a nationwide challenge to see which of America’s farmers markets can rally the most support from their communities. At the end of the contest one large, medium, small, and boutique sized farmers market will win the title of “America’s Favorite Farmers Market” for 2011. Winners will be featured on Epicurious.com, the most award-winning foodsite, and will be honored at local celebrations where they will receive prize packages from American Farmland Trust and its partners.
