We Accept SNAP
We are now accepting SNAP EBT cards for purchases of fresh produce and freshly prepared foods. Stop by the Market tent and we will explain how.
We received a grant from The USDA and Garden State Good Food (administered by City Green), to double your SNAP dollars. We hope this will be a way to help our fellow market shoppers who use these resources, to be able to buy fresh, healthful, and locally-sourced, fruits and vegetables. Thanks to all who made this possible.
A big thank you to our Market sponsors, who have committed to help make the Market possible in 2016 (more to come)!
