It’s Farmer’s Market Time . . . Buy local, eat healthy
Golden Arvada Lakewood Wheat Ridge Evergreen
Attention Farmer’s Market Managers!
Ensuring all incomes can shop at farmer’s market is a great way to grow community and support local economies. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has made expanding Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients’ access to fresh fruits and vegetables through farmer’s markets a priority in recent years. Many farmer’s markets across the country now accept SNAP benefits. For more information on this, go to http://coloradofarmers.org/snap/ Apply online to accept SNAP benefits . See if you are eligible to receive FREE equipment to accept SNAP, credit & debit.
For more information about a Jefferson County Public Health project that is working to increase SNAP redemption at Jefferson County farmer’s markets, contact Molly Hanson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
