Update: I know this is a busy time, with folks traveling, dealing with summer illnesses (the Foodie Tot included) and back to school preparations, so we’re extending the Farmers Market photo contest through the end of the month! Thanks to those who’ve already contributed great shots to the Flickr pool. If you haven’t yet, you now have extra time to stop by the market, pick up some fresh corn, peaches or whatever your favorite summer treats are, and send in a photo for the contest by Monday, August 31. The winner will be announced September 1. Submit a photo of your tot(s) at the market to the Foodie Tots <3 Farmers Markets Flickr pool by August 31 and you’ll have a chance to win a kid-sized reusable market tote filled with foodie goodies. For an extra entry into the drawing, blog about your local farmers market with a link back to this post &/or retweet a link to the “Foodie Tots <3 Farmers Markets” Flickr pool.
If you need more ideas for entertaining your kids at the farmers market — if live music, pesticide-free grapes, flowers and cookies aren’t enough — check out Michelle’s fantastic farmers market scavenger hunt.
In other market fan news, the American Farmland Trust announced its winners for the “America’s Favorite Farmers Market” contest. Virginia’s Williamsburg Farmers Market was the winner in the medium-sized category (anyone been?); Davis Farmers Market in California won for large market and Collingswood, NJ, was the small market winner. Congrats to all.
