Happy National Farmers’ Market Week!
Many of our Wooster Square vendors gathered at the market recently to say
farewell to Matt Staebner of Blue Slope Farm. In addition to Blue Slope being
a vendor at our market for many years, Matt was also a valued member of
CitySeed’s Market Advisory Committee. We thank Matt and Blue Slope for
their years of reliable involvement and support. We are sad to see them go!
Getting our vendors together in this way is a reminder that, each week as you
buy your groceries, you are supporting CT family farms and building community
in New Haven! This week is National Farmers Market Week — please join us in
celebrating the important role farmers and farmers markets play in bringing
healthy food to our tables all year long!
From July 1 through October 31, 2018, CitySeed will double the value of Senior FNMP checks at all CitySeed Markets. This program is funded by the 2018 Senior Produce and Honey Extra Redemption Endorsement (SPHERE) grant that CitySeed was awarded by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture in May of this year. Please visit the CitySeed information tent for more information.
All CitySeed Farmers’ Markets accept Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP), Senior FMNP, and SNAP (food stamp) benefits. CitySeed offers a Double Value Program, a nutrition incentive that enables SNAP recipients to double their money, dollar for dollar, at all CitySeed Markets and Mobile Market – up to $10 buys $20 of CT-grown fruit, vegetables, seedlings, or canned fruits and vegetables at each market each week. Please visit the CitySeed information tent for more information.
