Snellville Farmers' Market is again a contender for the nation's favorite local market to get fruits, vegetables and crafts.
The contest is part of American Farmland Trust's effort to raise awareness of farmers' markets, buying local and supporting America's farmers.
Kurt and Gretchen Schulz, long-time residents and volunteers in the city of Snellville, are leading the push to get votes.
The contest began June 22, and Snellville's farmers' market is behind, as some engineering glitches kept it off the American Farmland Trust site until June 25. Voting ends midnight on Monday, September 3, when one small, medium and large market will be crowned the nation's favorites.
Winning markets will be honored at local celebrations organized by American Farmland Trust, according the contest website.
Last year, the Snellville Farmers' Market was named the most favorite market in the state. And, it gained national praise by securing the third-place spot for top farmers' markets across the nation in its category of large market.
The market is now in its third year, and nearly 60 vendors are listed on the organization's website. A cookbook is also available for purchase this year.
It is open 8 a.m. - 12 p.m., every Saturday, from June until September.
