Review for American Farmland Trust, Washington, DC, USA
I am the manager of the Falls Church Farmers Market in Falls Church, Virginia. Last year the Falls Church Market won the American Farmland Trust honor as America's Favorite Market in the medium category. Working with the staff of the Trust was always a pleasure. I was impressed with the professionalism and the effective manner in which staff always stayed on message on the importance of preserving farmland. The information provided by the Trust to the Falls Church Farmers Market allowed us to promote the value of preserving farmland by supporting locally grown food. The service they provide to the community through their outreach is exemplary. Falls Church looks forward to continuing to work with the Farmland Trust to promote farmland preservation, by supporting local farmers who bring the best of local produce to the market each and every week. The American Farmland Trust is delivering a crtically valuable service by going above and beyond to educate the public about the value and improtance of preserving farmland.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Given Falls Church is located so close to the headquarters it would be great to see if the staff of the Trust could make an annual visit to the market by setting up a promotional booth.
