Help the Logan Square Farmers Market Be America’s Favorite Farmers Market!


It’s summertime and that means two things:

1) There are loads of delicious farm fresh produce available at the Logan Square Farmers Market 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!

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

1.) Go to www.farmland.org/vote

2.) Type in Logan Square Farmers Market; and,

3.) Click “Vote”

That’s it. That’s all it takes to bring Logan Square one step closer to being America’s favorite farmers market!

Now American Farmland Trust has introduced leader boards where you can keep track of the Top 5 markets receiving votes in Illinois.

Want to support multiple markets in Illinois? Search by state and you can vote for more of your favorites - just remember, you only have one vote to cast per market!

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™!”

So don’t forget to vote for Logan Square Farmers Market at www.farmland.org/vote and spread the word! Big thanks to everyone who has already voted!
