Voting has begun in American Farmland Trust's, "America's Favorite Farmers' Market Contest." http://action.farmland.org/site/PageNavigator/Americas-Favorite-Farmers-Markets/best_local_farmers_market_vote
So, I am encouraging everyone to go and vote for the Torrance Certified Farmers' Market to show our support and why we are the 3rd largest farmers' market in Los Angeles County! And, its not just because we have a large selection of farmers, but it's because our market is a community event and has been a fixture in the South Bay for 29 years! The Tuesday Market began in 1985 and the Saturday Market in 1992.
Now more than ever we need to support our local farmers' markets and make sure they thrive. Without farmers' markets, many California farmers couldn't survive (like Ken Lee, who has the best pluots ever)!
