Well, hello…

It seems that Mother Nature may have different plans, but WE have a pretty great day planned for you. Remember, we run rain or shine, but have to make alternate plans if there’s lightening, so please stay tuned to this space for up-to-date information about Saturday’s market.

As always, we are excited to have Wrangler & Friends join us. Meet an alpaca from 9-11:45am and paint a small masterpiece throughout the day. Bona Vista Programs, Inc. is our special guest. Market Manager Adrienne will be demonstrating frugal and frankly, sneaky, ways to incorporate veggies into your kids diets. Josh Mast will provide the tunes.

Please tell everyone we accept WIC and Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition vouchers along with SNAP–and we double up to the first $10 of one daily SNAP transaction EVERY. SINGLE. MARKET. That means SNAP users can get up to $40 each month in FREE produce!

Dedicated to increasing access to fresh, whole foods

The KDFM strives to provide access to fresh, locally-grown food to all members of our community through educational outreach, extended market hours and locations, and the promotion and development of local and small business.  To further help families, children and seniors in need all eligible vendors at our market accept SNAP and WIC  through a simple token program. Our Double Bucks program extends the purchasing power of SNAP users specifically for fresh, whole foods through doubling their benefits up to the first $10 for use on produce. We are changing lives one meal at a time!
