Help Poulsbo Farmer 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 Poulsbo 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

2.) Type in Poulsbo; and,

3.) Click “Vote”

That’s it. That’s all it takes to bring Poulsbo 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 WA.

Want to support multiple markets in WA? 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 Poulsbo at and spread the word! Big thanks to everyone who has already voted!

But really if you have a local farmers market you love than vote for yours. The point of my posting this is to promote farmers markets all over the USA. Shopping at farmers markets is so important and so awesome. You are supporting your local community and getting farm fresh produce that cannot compare to that which is shipped into your grocery store from thousands of miles away.
