Dear AFMA Members,
It is with great pleasure that we announce winners of the 2015 National Farmers Market Week Two-Step Contest!
1st Place, $250 – Fayetteville Farmers Market
2nd Place, $200 – Bentonville Farmers Market
3rd Place, $100 – Saracen Landing Farmers Market (Pine Bluff)
It was wonderful to see the activities each market provided as a way of celebrating Arkansas farmers markets’ progress and commitment to bringing healthier, fresher and more flavorful food to us all.
Our winning markets demonstrated how forming partnerships to host promotional events at markets with organizations within our communities promotes enthusiasm and more customer participation each market day.
We encourage all markets to 1) join AFMA if you have not already done so, and 2) begin to reach out to and partner with local individuals and organizations as a way of increasing your markets’ visibility and standing in your communities.
We’ve attached a 2015-2016 AFMA Membership Application for your convenience.
For more detailed information on winning markets’ celebrations, go to www.uaex.edu/farm-ranch/economics-marketing/market-maker/national-farmers-market-contest.aspx.
