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.

Fayetteville finished fifth last year in the annual contest held by the American Farmland Trust.

AFT posts the top 20 markets with the most online votes in each category. Large markets have 50 or more vendors.

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.

Also, the Eureka Springs Farmers Market came in at a respectable No. 14 among small markets, garnering 68 votes.

Joining these companies in the top five overall vote getters in Arkansas was

Jonesboro's ASU Regional Farmers Market with 80.
