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!
