Searching for something grown or made by a local? Farmers markets are the ultimate stop.

With the spreading COVID-19 virus, all farmers markets ask visitors to maintain social distancing, refraining from touching items, use hand sanitizer, and wear a mask when unable to social distance from vendors and other shoppers.

Ask about using your SNAP benefits. Many local Farmer’s Markets use SNAP Match. For every $1 you spend through EBT, you get matched an additional $1 up to $10 in extra SNAP currency to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables, honey, cut herbs, nuts and mushrooms, baked goods, eggs and more.
