Hours: Mon–Fri: 8:30am–4:30pm
Tah-dah! Meg Hastings was our 25th new sign-up for the ABFM eblast, and therefore, the winner of an ABFM grocery/tote! Thanks, Meg, for joining the ABFM family!
Special SNAP Offer
The ABFM accepts SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits. The market is a great place to use SNAP: by shopping for the freshest produce (which lasts longer in the fridge), you get terrific nutritional bang for your buck. The ABFM is sponsoring a special offer for SNAP users: we'll double the value of the first $10 you spend in SNAP benefits at market. So if you decide to spend $15 at market, you'll actually get $25 to spend. [This offer lasts until we distribute the allotted $400 for the season.] Come to the ABFM stall at market for details!
Opportunities for Local Nonprofits
If you are involved in a local nonprofit group, you should know that the ABFM makes available, each market day, a Community Table for community organizations and groups that work to make our neighborhoods and communities better places. If you'd like your group to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact the Community Table Coordinator through the link on this page.
