We are thrilled to announce a new matching program for SNAP (food stamp) purchases, organized by Field & Fork and funded by the Berkshire Taconic Foundation. Get more fruits and vegetables when you spend your food dollars at our market with Double Up Food Bucks!
For every $2 of SNAP EBT card dollars a customer spends at our market, customers get $2 of free Double Up Food Bucks to spend on any New York State-grown fruits and vegetables, up to $20 per market visit per day. Visit www.doubleupnys.com or stop by our market information table at your next visit for more information.
Celebrate this popular fruit with us on Saturday!
How to get in on this raffle? Just fill out the raffle slip and drop it in the bucket.
BONUS: if you can list the super secret promo code, “I LOVE FARMERS MARKETS“, you will be entitled to a *second* raffle entry ticket to double your chances.
The vendors are getting in on the action, too. Brigid of les collines will have her Strawberry Preserve with Lapsang Souchong, telling us “I created the flavor four years ago, and we mostly use strawberries from Samascott Orchards in Kinderhook, along with Fishkill Farms in Dutchess County.”
Farmer Dan with Common Hands will be selling strawberries; Ellen’s Country Kitchen is making Chocolate Strawberry shortcake; Heidi of Simmons Sugarworks is selling her strawberry scones, and Hawk Dance Farm is selling a Strawberry Jam.
It’s an exciting milestone in a farmers market season when all of the applications are received, reviewed, space planning completed, vendors notified, and lineup announced!
