Individual approved vendors can now accept payments from customers participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Customers should look for signs posted at individual booths to determine which vendors are accepting SNAP. For additional assistance, questions can be directed to the on site City Booth.
In the spring, shoppers can purchase early crops such as spinach, kale, leaf lettuce, and asparagus. They will also find beef, chicken and duck eggs, local honey, goat cheese, bread and baked goods. Several types of vegetable starts will also be available, along with a variety of must-see agricultural crafts.
Produce availability changes with each season. Shopping at the market provides customers with an opportunity to find both regular and unique types of produce. For real time posts, videos and healthy eating tips, like the market at Facebook.com/BAFarmersmarket.
While you’re here shopping, be sure to bring the kids by the Kids Corner and complete the craft for the day.
