Easton Farmers' Market Volunteer Scott Zukowski talked to me recently about how everyone can help the Market win #1 in the nation:
"This came about this past week. I had an idea, because we're number two in the nation behind a farmers' market in Frankfort, Kentucky, to get the word out utilizing some of our local resources. So, I connected with Laini Abraham of Laini's Little Pocket Guides. Laini and I started working on a layout and I spoke with Fran, who's the owner of American Printing, who does all the printing for the Farmers' Market and is just a great guy helping out the community. So in the space of a couple days, with a deadline of Thursday afternoon, we got this in ahead of time and I picked up the printing of this mini-flyer, which shows Sunny the Horse and asks everybody to vote for their favorite farmers' market, which should be Easton Farmers' Market! We're the oldest, continuous open-air farmers' market in the United States, opening in 1752 and celebrating our 263rd anniversary. Currently we're number one in the state in all five categories (on the flyer) and number two in the nation in all five categories. Voting will go on until the middle of September. This town really has a great sense of community, from our hosting a pig roast last Sunday with Jeremy from Two Rivers being the chef for that... You can't thank these people enough for all they do; the community is amazing. It just keeps getting better and better."
Let's get this going! If you haven't voted yet, do it! Go here to cast your ballot: http://markets.farmland.org/market/easton-farmers-market-pennsylvania/
