The Pacific Coast Farmers' Market Association (PCFMA) is calling all farmers' market fans with an eye for photography to capture the vibrancy of the local market.

The pictures will be entered into the "Love My Market" photo competition running throughout August, with a chance to win a two night retreat at Lone Oak Ranch in Reedley, Calif.

The Ecology Center sponsors three Farmers' Markets in Berkeley and one in Albany.

“We’re really excited about National Farmers’ Market Week,” said John Silviera, Director of PCFMA, as quoted in a press release. “It’s a great opportunity to highlight the benefits of farmers’ markets and we’ll be celebrating with a lot of fun activities and giveaways at our markets.”

National Farmers' Market Week was Aug. 4-10, but the contest runs for the whole month of August.

To take part in the competition, snap a photo that captures why you love one of the Berkeley Farmers' Markets or any other farmers' market, and then email the photo to lovemymarket@pcfma.com. Remember to include the name of the market where the photo was taken. You can also pick up entry forms at one of the 70-plus PCFMA farmers' markets.

And you can also share your photos on Albany Patch by posting to our "Announcements" Board or doing a blog post with your photos.
