Across America, there’s a revolution afoot – and it’s a delicious one! In rural, suburban and urban communities alike, people are turning to their local farmers markets for fresh, healthy and affordable food. And over 50,000 people have already voted in the “Love Your Farmers Market” contest!

You are helping to build this movement, one vote at a time. Consider yourself a local food revolutionary! Please spread the word about your farmers market to build support and help them win our contest:

Congratulations to the markets that have already won weekly prizes!
• Forsyth Farmers Market in Savannah, GA
• Gurnee Park District Farmers Market in Gurnee, IL
• Belen Farmers Market in Belen, NM
• Pearl Farmers Market in San Antonio, TX
It’s easy to spread the word to help your farmers market win and generate buzz for your market in your community to help your local farmers. Visit your contest promo page to post a link to Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, send a fun eCard, grab web banners to post, download flyers to print and send emails to friends.
Have some fun in the kitchen after the market: Some Care2 employees got together with our friend Jen Dalton, organic home cook and slow food organizer, to produce a fun series of YouTube cooking shows with fresh food from our local farmers market. Six simple and delicious recipes are already up – check them out:

Care2 is partnering with, America’s most popular website for finding food grown close to home, to raise awareness of local foods, family farms, and community farmers markets through this fun, summer-long contest. Thank you for voting and for supporting your local farmers market!

Thank you!
