Foursquare Flair for Healthy Food Habits Courtesy CNN

Time is running out to keep LAist funded.
It's the FINAL DAY of our June Member Drive and we are behind on our goal to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Plus, your gift's impact will be twice as strong because it will be matched dollar for dollar!

Foursquare has launched a new reward for those who frequent farmers' markets. Starting tomorrow (though we know some folks have received one today) if you have "friended" CNN via your Foursquare account you can pick up their "Healthy Eater" badge. No, it's not relative to the size of your appetite; the badge stems from their "Eatocracy" campaign and pops up when you check in at a farmers' market. If you need help finding one, the USDA has a directory, though we love our local Los Angeles database. We've been checking different markets all over town to profile them for our Know Your Farmers' Market series.
