America has chosen its favorite farmers markets, and I am more than thrilled with the results. Why? The farmers market that I shop at each Saturday morning was voted favorite small farmers market, and it deserves the honor.

The contest was held by American Farmland Trust. From June 1 until Aug. 8, almost 30,000 people voted for their favorite farmers markets. In the last three weeks of the promotion, the top spots changed frequently, almost daily. I know that the Collingswood market was in a heated competition with a market from Fresno, Calif., and that top spot was up for grabs until the last day. I’m sure the Fresno market is a good one, but personally, I’m really pleased my market came in first.

What are America’s favorite farmers markets? There were three categories – small, medium and large.

The top three markets will each receive a shipment of “No Farms, No Food” recyclable tote bags that they can give away to shoppers at the market.

To get a glimpse of the Collingswood Farmers Market, you can see my opening day report over at South Jersey Locavore.
