Farmers are working so hard this year to provide shoppers with amazing food and to keep everyone safe at their markets. Let’s show them our appreciation by sharing our best photos and stories about farmers’ markets.
Submit your entries by August 16th, 2020.
Photo and Story Contests!
Note: Safety First! Please do not interfere with customers waiting in line to shop. Please follow all market rules. Please wear a face-covering at the market and in your photo. We will not accept photos from shoppers without face coverings/shields/masks. Check out our covid-19 page for shoppers for more information on safety at the market.
A shopper may submit 2 entries, one photo entry, and one written entry. MFFM will select 4 winners from each category to highlight and award a gift certificate to a local farmers’ market of their choice.
