A couple Roseville farmers markets are in the running for a nation-wide contest in search of the favorite farmers markets. And if you think they're pretty great, cast your vote.
American Farmland Trust, a non-profit group focused on conserving agricultural land, is running its fourth annual America's Favorite Farmers Markets contest this summer.
The contest asks shoppers to vote for the farmers market they like best from a list of more than 7,000 proved by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. (Roseville has multiple markets on the list.)
Voting ends at midnight on Sept. 3 and winners will be chosen in each of four categories: small, medium, mid-size and large. American Farmland Trust will throw a party for each of the winning markets.
There's also an essay contest in which farmers can write about why participating in markets is important to them, for a chance to win $1,000.
Roseville farmers markets in the running include and Roseville Kaiser Permanente Farmers Market.
So how about it, Roseville? Should cities nationwide bow to our farmers market excellence, or what? Click here to vote, and share your thoughts in the comments.
