Voting Ends Soon in Farmers Market Celebration

Posted on August 19, 2015 at 11:20 AM by OCOM Specialist

Since 1984, the Farmers Market has been a source of fresh food and family-friendly fun in The Little City. From the annual Chef Series to the new composting program, there is something for everyone at the year-round Farmers Market!

As a part of this summer’s Farmers Market Celebration, the American Farmland Trust has been on the hunt for the best farmers markets in the nation. The public can vote online to endorse their favorite local market based on the following categories: focus on farmers, availability of healthy food for all, sustainable efforts, and uniqueness to the community.

Our market is currently ranked third in Virginia, but we need your help getting to the top! You can show your support by voting here. Voting ends soon and the awards will be presented on September 23.
