The Farmers Market Coalition and Farm Aid are pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 National Farmers Market Poster Contest.
With over 1,100 votes (‘likes’ on Facebook), this year’s Fan Favorite Poster for the THIRD year in a row, is the Ligonier Country Market, in Ligonier, Pennsylvania!
Created by Peyton Clark of PMC Paintings, a vendor at the market, her vision for the poster came from how she sees the market through her own eyes. Congratulations!
Since 2014, Farmers Market Coalition has hosted the National Farmers Market Poster Contest to showcase the creative ways that farmers markets around the country are advertising in their communities. Both FMC and contest sponsor Farm Aid were blown away by the submissions and are proud to see the contest become more dynamic each year.
This year, more than 200 poster entries from farmers markets across 46 states participated in the contest. These posters individually speak to their respective markets, and collectively embody the commitment and involvement communities have to local foods and farmers.
The posters captured the attention of farmers market supporters across the country — more than 175,000 Facebook users were saw the diversity and creativity of farmers markets big, small, urban, rural, and in between. To see all of the beautiful submissions, be sure to like us on Facebook and view the 2019 National Farmers Market Poster Contest album.
We would like to extend a special thank you to Farm Aid for sharing our deep commitment to farmers markets, and helping to ensure that they thrive in a time when it’s easy to just walk by. It was a pleasure to work with an organization long dedicated to family farms and the role that they play in building strong communities.
With so many stunning submissions, the competition was fierce and picking the winners wasn’t easy. But we are happy to announce the five winners of the 2019 National Farmers Market Poster Contest, and a few staff favorite runner ups, too!Posted
