We are sharing this information with the farmers market community:

The Community Alliance for Global Justice and Community to Community Development are thrilled to host the Awarding of the 2016 Food Sovereignty Prize, on Sat Oct 15 at Town Hall Seattle.

The Prize – an alternative to the Big Ag-sponsored World Food Prize - will be awarded in Seattle for the first time since its 2009 inception. The Prize is awarded by the US Food Sovereignty Alliance to frontline organizations transforming our food system by building power and creating real community-led solutions to poverty, hunger and climate change. 

This year’s honorees are Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa and Farmworkers Association of Florida, and representatives of both groups will accept the prize and speak at the event.
