Anyone who's been to the Flint Farmers' Market knows what a gem it is in our community and now is our opportunity to help it get some national recognition.
American Farmland Trust is looking for the best farmers' market in the US. (At the time of this writing, the Flint Farmers' Market is currently at the top of the heap in the Midwest.)
What Are the Detail?
