The "I Love My Farmers Market Celebration" encourages consumers to pledge to support family farmers by visiting and signing an online pledge form. A pledge is a commitment to spend $10 at your farmers market. Each week one participant and their favorite farmer will be selected to receive a free No Farms No Food hat.
Markets with the most pledges will be featured on an up-to-the-minute “100 Most Celebrated Farmers Markets” leader-board by the end of July.
Just as Americans begin to embrace the advantages of local farmers markets, many of these markets may be in danger of disappearing. American Farmland Trust’s I Love My Farmers Market Celebration draws attention to a stark reality — once farmland is paved over, it is lost forever. Moreover, the farmland closest to urban centers is at the highest risk of being bulldozed.

American Farmland Trust’s I Love My Farmers Market infographic helps local food consumers go beyond their appreciation for fresh local food and see the bigger picture of how keeping farmers on the land benefits us all. The infographic can be downloaded and viewed at .
I Love My Farmers Market Celebration is part of American Farmland Trust’s No Farms No Food Campaign. The celebration marks the fifth year that American Farmland Trust has hosted a summer-long event to honor our nation’s hardworking family farmers and to raise national awareness about our bountiful farmers markets.
