National Farmers' Market Week 2022

MFMA Annual Photo Contest Winners for 2022!


Photographer: Manda Hart Baldwin     

Market: Lake City Market by the Lake

Why we love this photo: Gorgeous! That sky! Where there is a rainbow, we know there has been both sun and rain. As growers and food lovers, we know how important both are! And with the rainbow comes the potential of a great market day with more sun, produce, music, PoP, EBT, food trucks, tents, market goers, and so much more! Take it all in. 

Runners up (click on photos for details):

$125 2nd Place Winner- Photographer Tara Huotari at the Grand Rapids Farmers Market. We're suckers for photos of cute kids at a market and a hand painted market sign!

$100 3rd Place - Photographer Jane Shortridge at the Park Rapids Farmers Market. We love the hand written sign, it's message, the happy vendor and the vibrant colors. We'd buy those tomatoes immediately!

$75 4th  Place - Photographer Sarah Knoss at the Northeast Farmers Market. We've seen A LOT of great produce pictures in our day, but the water droplets on these tomatoes give it such a refreshing fun vibe. Yes, rain, please!
