The Rohnert Park farmers market may only have just begun, but already it's garnering plenty of local attention. Now the market has an opportunity to get a little national attention.

A new national contest is underway now, and the winner will be determined by voters.

American Farmland Trust, a non-profit group focused on conserving agricultural land, is running its fourth annual America's Favorite Farmers Markets contest this summer.

The contest asks shoppers to vote for the farmers market they like best from a list of more than 7,000 provided by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. However, Rohnert Park is not on the list. But it can be. By filling out the form, the Rohnert Park Farmers Market could be added to the list.

Vote for Rohnert Park here

Voting ends at midnight on Sept. 3 and winners will be chosen in each of four categories: small, medium, mid-size and large. American Farmland Trust will throw a party for each of the winning markets.

There's also an essay contest in which farmers can write about why participating in markets is important to them, for a chance to win $1,000.

So how about it, Fair Oaks? Should cities nationwide bow to our farmers market excellence, or what? Click here to vote, and share your thoughts in the comments.
