Special Events and Services at the Winter Farmers’ Markets
Check back soon for more information!
We proudly accept SNAP/EBT dollars at all of our Winter Farmers’ Markets. At the market, SNAP recipients can choose how much they would like to spend that day on food purchases, with no minimum amount required. A market staff member will then swipe their EBT card for that amount. The customer is then given wooden tokens, that are used just like cash, and can be used to buy food at approved vendors at the market. Tokens never expire – if you do not use them all that day, they can be saved for future markets. Learn More about shopping with SNAP
CSA Days at the Markets
During some Winter Farmers’ Markets, in addition to an amazing farmers’ market, we offer the chance to meet farmers who have CSA shares available.
Each CSA is unique, offering different pick up locations, diversity of products, and experiences. CSA Days at the market give you a chance to ask questions and find the right CSA for you. Whether you are interested in a traditional boxed share, farm credit based share, local delivery or on-farm pick up, there will be a farm for you. There are spring and summer, fall, and year round CSA options. Learn more about CSAs and find farms that offer shares .
