American Farmland Trust would like to thank all of the markets and supporters that have participated in our Farmers Market Celebration over the years. We hope it has helped markets thrive in communities across the nation and given shoppers the opportunity to embrace their local food system while forming deeper relationships with local farmers and food producers.
A Special Congratulations to Our Past Winners!
2021: Columbia Farmers Market, Columbia, MO
“I’m constantly blown away by the support our community shows our producer-only farmers market. The mid-Missouri community keeps coming back year-round Saturday after Saturday supporting our 80+ vendors, keeping us open during the pandemic, donating over $5.8 million towards Columbia’s Agriculture Park, and now voting us into this #1 recognition. We can’t say thank you enough, to everyone that has helped our farmers market get to where we are today.” says Corrina Smith, Executive Director for Columbia Farmers Market
