Review for American Farmland Trust, Washington, DC, USA
In early 2010, the Rochester Public Market was nominated for "America's Favorite Farm Market". In August, 2010, our century old marketplace beat out stiff competition to win the honor from American Farmland Trust.
The contest itself serves as a vehicle to call attention to farming, and agricultural issues. Customers at farm markets across the nation cast their votes by the thousands for their favorite market. Throughout the summer of 2010, our own customer base was engaged in raising the level of farm market awareness on a weekly basis.
We are so grateful to the staff at American Farmland Trust for their support and guidance throughout the contest period. Through their efforts, our market has received local, regional and national attention. As our award plaque now hangs on the wall of the market office we recognize that it represents not just a contest, but an effort to keep farms, farm families and the importance of supporting agriculture at the forefront of our national consciousness.
Thank you American Farmland Trust for your creative approach to supporting "The Hands that Feed Us".
