3rd Annual Photo Contest Is On!
Join Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association (PCFMA), the USDA, and farmers’ markets around the country in celebrating National Farmers’ Market Week this year from August 2nd to 8th. "Farmers’ markets play a key role in developing local and regional food systems that support farmers and help grow rural economies," said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. "They bring communities together, connecting cities with the farms and providing Americans with fresh, healthy food.”
PCFMA will celebrate throughout the entire month of August with the 3rd annual #lovemyPCFMAmarket Photo Contest. To participate, snap a photo of what you love about your local PCFMA farmers’ market, whether it is the unusual produce, your favorite farmer, being with your family, or anything else farmers’ market related. Submit the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or post the photo on your public Instagram or Facebook page using #lovemyPCFMAmarket between August 1st and August 31st. Please include the name of your farmers' market in your email or caption. Be sure to tag us on Instagram or Facebook!
Please limit one entry per person, per week. See official rules at pcfma.org/contestrules. Contestants will have a chance to win the Grand Prize of a one-night stay for two at the Capay Valley Bed & Breakfast and tickets to the nearby Hoes Down Festival at Full Belly Farm. Second prize is two tickets to the Guest Chef Series: The Chef & The Winemaker at Wente Winery in Livermore. Third prize includes $50 in “Carrot Cash” (good at any PCFMA farmers’ market) and a reusable bag filled with fresh seasonal produce. Come join the conversation and send us your favorite market photos!
