SNAP at the Farmers' Market

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
Recently we visited the 'Farmers on the Square' in Carlisle where vendors have worked together to accept SNAP (food stamps) and other EBT aid throughout the market. Working with Cheryl Burns from Capital Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D), the market managers, Carla Snyder (2010) and Christine Rudalevige (2011), have created a market that is truly welcoming to everyone.

We will be offering a field day later this year on how you can accept SNAP at your market. More info to come....

For now, check out this beautiful market in a short video we created from our visit:
