I love, love, love the Salem Farmers Market. It’s a fantastic new addition to a thriving city and I can’t adequately express my adoration for all the yummy produce. You just have to trust me.
So if you’re like me, and you’re looking to help the Market in the meantime (AKA: before the season starts), then head over to Sixty2 on Wharf on Monday, April 12 @ 6PM for a silent auction. Learn more here.
Also, a big congrats to the Market for winning a $2,500 grant from the MA Department of Agricultural Resources Farmers Market Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) program. In layman’s terms: Farmers at the market can now accept Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, formerly food stamp, as payment for locally grown produce. Nice!
*And did I mention that my CSA takes place on the same day as the Farmers Market? Swing by CGB and pick up your CSA share, then supplement your fresh, local, organic produce with more fresh, local, organic produce.
