So congrats to the following folks who get this year's honors:
Farm/Farmer: Maya's Farm
Chef/Restaurant: James Porter, Tapino
Food Artisan: Fossil Creek Creamery
Beverage Artisan: Four Peaks Brewery
Non-profit: Downtown Phoenix Public Market
Next time around, you voters will need to do some more brainstorming on whom to nominate for best non-profit. Since the Downtown Phoenix Public Market just won the category for the third year running, it's being retired to the Local Hero Hall of Fame.
