If you enjoy the Fort Thomas Farmers' Market, make your voice heard! Fans of the market are invited to participate in the American Farmland Trusts' 12th Annual Farmers Market Celebration by voting for their favorite market.
In honor of the vital role farmers markets play, AFT is recognizing top markets by region and offer cash prizes for the markets that finish in the Top Three of the People's Choice category;
- First Prize: $1,000
- Second Prize: $500
- Third Prize: $250
These funds will be awarded to markets for marketing, communications, and other needs that help expand the market’s reach and impact.
In its 12th year, the Fort Thomas Farmers' Market has become a community source for fresh foods all summer long with thirty vendors. If Fort Thomas Farmers' Market gains enough votes, the group will be in the running for national recognition and cash prizes.

“In many regions, especially during these unprecedented times, farmers markets have
been vital to keeping existing farms in business and enabling new farms to get started,”
said John Piotti, American Farmland Trust president and CEO. “During the coronavirus
pandemic, farmers markets have served as essential businesses, helping to connect
farmers to customers, and customers to local, healthy food.”
