Voting for the Taste Farmers Markets New Zealand Awards is now open (seeCLICK HERE), and to celebrate and promote the event, we are working with food bloggers based in New Zealand. We will be setting up a page dedicated to showcasing NZ food bloggers, and the link to this will be on the home page and main menu. There are two ways you can get featured: 1. Write a post that showcases or uses (in a recipe for example) any food product from a NZ farmers market (remember to link to the market and/or producer too, or tell people their details if they don't have a website), and link to tastefarmersmarkets.org.nz, encouraging readers to either nominate their favourite producer/stallholder or vote for their favourite farmers market. With your permission we will link to you AND feature an image and the subject from this post (please send a 250x250pixel image or one that we can easily resize to that). You will also go into the draw to win a prize pack that includes cookbooks by Farmers Markets New Zealand Chairperson and Chef, Chris Fortune, and lots of delicious foodie goodies and wine. 2. Alternatively, if you'd just like to spread the word, you are welcome to do so by linking to tastefarmersmarkets.org.nz and encouraging readers to either nominate their favourite producer/stallholder or vote for their favourite farmers market. You will still go into the draw to win the prize pack, but we will only feature a link to your site. The bonus for anyone who votes is that they will be automatically entered into the draw to win a return trip for 2 to Singapore to visit Loewen Gardens Farmers Market, and cookbooks by NZ food icons. Let me know if you're interested, and if you pick option one, send me your image as soon as the post is public. Attached is a logo for the awards - please link it to the tastefarmersmarkets.org.nz if participating :) Please note the deadline for posting is Monday April 25. Feel free to circulate this email to any other food bloggers you may know. Also please don't hesitate to ask me if you have any ideas or questions! You can also contact Chris directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
