In case you haven’t heard, the Fayetteville Farmers Market topped this year’s list of America’s favorite farmers markets in the large-market category with 1,439 votes.

As a national winner, it will receive a promotional package to help grow the event.

Last year we told you about Fayetteville’s fifth-place finish in the annual contest held by the American Farmland Trust. It posts the top 20 markets with the most online votes in each category. Large markets have 50 or more vendors.

Several other local markets took kudos in this year’s contest. Bentonville Farmers Market’s 354 votes ranked it 11th among large markets.

In the small-market category, with 15 or fewer vendors, the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks in Fayetteville took fourth place with 151 votes.
