2013 SEASON AT A GLANCE
We thought you'd enjoy some glimpses of the 2013 market season to date. The season runs through Oct. 20, so there are still plenty of harvest season Sundays left. Also: stay tuned for news of our end-of-season, five-year-anniversary celebration!
The Local Table
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, 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!
