Three awards were given this year. The winners are, in the order in which they were announced: the Hudson Farmers' Market; Berkshire Co-op Market, in Great Barrington; and Terrapin Restaurant, in Rhinebeck.

Each award winner received a trophy and a $1,000 stipend. Jake Levin, who accepted the award for Berkshire Co-op Market, gave the $1,000 back to the fund, as did Josh Kroner, the chef at Terrapin. Virginia Ambrose, manager of the Hudson Farmers' Market, who was first to accept the award, did not turn down the prize money, and loyal denizens of the Hudson Farmers' Market eagerly await learning what improvement to the market the $1,000 will fund.
